Almost end of summer and a exquisite soup

Rain drops

So, this is it. The holidays are gone and with them  I also  noticed that summer is  ending.  These days have been overcast and rainy. and I move forward, as always
As I comment in my previous post, I found some blue  potatoes  and could not resist the purchase. With a quick search  I got to discover  that is an ancient  Peruvian potato variety  and is cultivated in Russia. In some places known as  Russian blue potatoes.
Despite its color is not a hybrid or artificial, are completely natural.  To test  I roasted some with regular potatoes  and I really like its flavor, more intense but similar texture. Very good indeed

Russian blue potato soup
 Is very hard to find in nature many foods in blue so if you want to give a different touch  in your meal  try it. The children  will be thrilled with the shine color and love it .
This soup was quite tasty, especially for rainy days. I hope you enjoy.
 Have a nice week

Sylvia this sounds so earthy and delicious. I love the herb, potato and zucchini combination in your soup. Yumm! I have never cooked with blue potatoes.. maybe it would be fun to make a blue gnocci too!

As with blueberries or any dark fruit or vegetable these purple potatoes would be that much better for you...the bonus is they make a very pretty and summer-like soup too!!
