Greek Roasted Lemon Potatoes Recipe

by katerina on June 8, 2011

Greek lemon potatoes are crispy and brown on the outside, tender and pillowy on the inside with a strong but simple lemon flavour. After consulting Peter, I attempted making traditional Green roasted potatoes at home. So easy. So good.

Don’t be deceived into thinking these have any redeeming virtues from a health perspective; the potatoes basically deep fry in the oven. But they are worth it. Plus the beautiful fragrance will waft through your home and welcome any lucky guests.

Greek Roasted Lemon Potatoes

(serves 4)
Adapted from

4 potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup water
the juice of one lemon
1/2 teaspoon salt
freshly ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried Oregano

Turn your oven on to 475F. Spray a small casserole dish with cooking spray, or baste gently with olive oil. Combine all ingredients in the casserole and toss well. Stir so that the garlic is submerged in the liquid so it doesn't burn.

Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and baste the potatoes, return to the oven for another 20 minutes or until potatoes are cooked through. (This really depends on how big you cut them, I was hungry so I went fairly small.) Serve hot!
