The first time I saw vegetables other than their "normal" colors I think it was in Switzerland several years ago, and then they were becoming more common in television cooking programs. the blue potatoes had always fascinated me and finally they are much easier to find, they do not stand out for their flavor but they are very colorful in a recipe like this blue potato salted cake.
And it is that food enters the eyes, as they say, and a recipe as simple as this earns a lot when preparing with the colorful Azulona or violet version of the potato. Try to cut it into thin slices so that it is not a bite too heavy, but in any case it is a perfect dish to serve in portions and share.Direct to the Palate Zucchini and mushroom cake. Recipe

If we are going to use a frozen puff pastry, remove it from the freezer long enough to temper before working with him. Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
Stretch the puff pastry without leaving it too thin on sulfurized paper. Mark the edges with a knife, trying not to cross the dough completely, as if we were drawing a frame. Spread the tomato sauce over the inside surface and give a pepper punch. Bake about 10 minutes, until golden brown.
Wash and cook the blue potatoes for 8-10 minutes, until they can be pierced with a stick. Drain and let cool. Cut into thin sheets, leaving the skin if desired, and spread over the puff pastry. Add goat cheese crumbled, extra virgin olive oil, black pepper and thyme.
Bake at 180 ° C about 20 more minutes. Water with a little more olive oil and add chopped parsley before serving.
