Fancy Purple Potato and Yellow Bean Plate

Unusually colored vegetables are especially fun to serve to dinner guests. Here is a fancy vegan recipe with purple potatoes and yellow wax beans.

I love frequently farmers' markets offering unusual produce picks, such as red carrots, purple potatoes, and multi-colored baby cauliflowers. These "oddly" colored vegetables are especially fun to serve to dinner guests. Here is a fancy vegan recipe with purple potatoes and yellow wax beans.

Fancy Purple Potato and Yellow Bean Plate

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 medium purple potatoes

  • Sea salt to taste

  • 2/3 pound yellow wax beans

  • 4 long chives

  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary

  • 4 sprigs fresh lavender


Directions:

  1. Cook potatoes in a medium pot of salted boiling water until just tender. Use a slotted spoon to transfer potatoes to a cutting board.

  2. Place beans in the boiling water and blanch for just a couple of minutes. Transfer to an iced water bath to halt cooking. Place on paper towels to drain.

  3. Slice potatoes and fan the slices of each potato onto a serving plate. Sprinkle with sea salt.

  4. Bundle wax beans into 4 portions, carefully tying a chive around each to hold together. Set on the plate with the potatoes.

  5. Set a rosemary sprig alongside the potatoes and a lavendar sprig on the beans. Serve.


Cook's note: You can serve vegetables with a generous drizzle of really good extra virgin olive oil or your favorite dressing, if desired.
