Mardi Gras Potato Hash

Is there any color combination in food that I like better than purple and green?? Let’s see, NO, unless you mean purple green and gold. That’s right, the colors of King Cake, shiny plastic beads, and a whole lot of jolly, Mardi Gras!!!!

I’m obsessed with these purple potatoes, I get mine at Tjs. They give such gorgeous color to whatever you are making, and taste like new potatoes basically. They give a pop of color, making the ordinary meal extraordinary šŸ™‚

You need:
-4 small purple potatoes, sliced thin
-1/2 yellow onion, sliced
-1/2 green pepper, chopped
– fresh rosemary 1tbs, chopped
-fresh basil, 2 tbs
-dash tumeric
-dash crushed red pepper
– dash jalapeƱo hot sauce (and then a whole lot more for true New Orleanian spice)
-coconut oil spray
-dash salt

SautƩ all ingredients over medium heat until potatoes are starting to soften.

For those that eat eggs, I can picture one sunny side up on top of this hash, golden yoke flowing down majestically:)

For a vegan option with more gold, substitute green pepper for a yellow bell pepper and add some fresh diced jalapeƱo instead of the crushed red pepper/hot sauce. Serve with black beans for added vegan protein. Omnomnomnom

Bonus, photo of a King Cake for the unaware. Mardi Gras is this week and the pics from my cousins made me homesick.. and crave king cake–the most delicious diabetes-inducing morsel in the world šŸ˜‰ I’ll have to attempt a healthy version, but that would be a true oxymoron!
