purple vegetables

because of M.s favorite color I'm obsessed in looking for violet
this vegetables I discovered the last days
most of them organic species
the beans are fantastic, but
they loose their color by cooking
the little eggplants are from the Pakistan shop

"Hier gratis was zum nagen" (knabbern?)
best "Wurst" zum nagen
