What are some examples of purple vegetables?

Answer

Purple vegetables invite people to try them by their unexpected color alone. Spring onions and purple potatoes are quite common in the grocery store. Also common is the Japanese eggplant which is slightly different from a regular eggplant. The Japanese eggplant is smaller and more dainty in flavor. Eggplant is often substituted in meat dishes because of its meaty taste and texture. Purple Cabbage is used in salads or as a garnish to dishes. Cabbage can be used in coleslaw or shredded for salad and the delightful purple hue will add excitement to a monochromatic salad.
