Did you know that girls may have more clothes but boys create more laundry? I am certain this is true based on both my experience and the number of folks who gave an ‘Amen’ on Facebook.

Some other comments I received were:

*Word.
*I SWEAR it’s dirty as soon as I hang it. They just have to walk by.
*Imagine 4 of them.
*So true!!
*Don’t I know it!
*Agree 100%..I have two girls and one boy and my son creates more than half the laundry in our house
*Try having THREE!!!!!!!!

Why am I telling you this? Well, I am not sure but let’s see what I can come up with………………Oh! because purple potatoes make purple juice when you cut them and it might stain. Convincing?

You know we are already purple potato fans (recall the video?) so when Dole asked me to create a healthy purple potato recipe I was all like ‘You were reading my mind fabulous peeps from Dole’. Sign up for the Dole newsletter and grab yourself some more healthy recipes!

Purple Potato Hash (Serves 2)
Ingredients:
2 tablespoon olive oil
1/3 lb petite purple potatoes, diced
2-3 tablespoons finely chopped sweet onion
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/3 red pepper, chopped
1/3 cup chopped baby bella mushrooms
Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
½ cup baby spinach leaves, optional

Directions:
1. Heat the olive oil over medium to medium-low heat, add potatoes and sauté 5-7 minutes, stirring often.

2. Add the onion and garlic and sauté 2 minutes. Now add the red peppers and sauté for an additional 2 minutes.

3. Finally, add the mushrooms 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper if necessary and serve with baby spinach.

Gorgeous! I love purple potatoes. This is the first year I haven’t grown them in a long time. Now I’m wishing I had. :)

So pretty! I just love purple potatoes! I bet my 4 year old girl could give any boy a run for their money. She changes outfits 5 times a day if I let her.

I tried purple potatoes for the first time this year from the farmers’ market and now I love them. They have almost a cocoa-y flavor to them.

Gorgeous! Is Dole selling purple potatoes now? I can only find them at the Asian market or Whole Foods.

My – that sure is a pretty breakfast – and healthy too! Great idea!

Hi AM – I am not sure if Dole is selling them. I found them at Stop & Shop.

Annie @ Mama Dweeb October 27, 2011 at 11:18 pm

That looks amazing! I cannot wait to try and make this myself!

This is such a beautiful dish, Jennifer. Love the color of those purple potatoes. And I can assure that, with two boys in the house, I am constantly doing laundry.
