5 Rad Purple Potato Recipes

Beautiful purple potatoes add a splash of color and a little fun into your cooking.  You can find sweet and savory varieties of this colorful spud, usually available at hte farmer's market or ethnic markets.  These five recipes may be the same thing you would do with a regular potato but I think it's always exciting to change it up.
