Recipe : Oven Roasted Purple Potatoes

When we were in Dallas, Whitney introduced us to purple sweet potatoes.
We go through a lot of sweet potatoes in our house but honesty they aren't my 100% favorite.
They are a little too 'yammy' to me. 
Purple ones are not.
Plus they are so pretty.

Once we were home I whipped up my own version.
They couldn't have been easier or more delicious.
These are definitely a staple in our summer menu now.

Oven Roasted Purple Sweet Potatoes
6 small purple potatoes, sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil
handful of fresh basil
handful of fresh rosemary

(I used the convection feature on our oven and I think it helped crisp them up nicely.)

1.  Preheat oven to 375 (400 if normal oven)
2.  Place sliced potatoes on foil lined pan
3.  Julienne basil and chop of rosemary
4.  Coat potatoes with olive oil, basil and rosemary
5.  Cook for 20 minutes or so depending on how crispy you want them

Serve with a summer meal!
We chose burgess, grilled pineapple and potatoes!
I could eat this exact meal every day.

Linking up with Anne for Pin to Present...inspired by this post

Ooh I love purple potatoes, but we've never done purple sweet potatoes! Yum. Kind of excited to track some down and blow Hendrik's mind with the color change :)

These look so good!! I've never had purple potatoes--sweet OR regular. We eat potatoes as a side dish a lot around my house, so this is one I'd love to try to mix things up a bit!

I tried purple potatoes in Hawaii a few years ago and loved them. I didn't figure you could get them here, do you mind sharing where you got them?
