Greek roasted potatoes (with lemon or orange oil)

Greek roasted potatoes (lemon or orange oil)

Lemons, garlic, potatoes, Greek oregano, fresh rosemary and olive oil – ordinary ingredients that make an extraordinary dish.

Ingredients for 4 portions: 4 large potatoes, 150ml olive oil, 2 teaspoons salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, 3 tablespoons chopped rosemary, 200ml broth or water, 5-6 cloves chopped garlic, 2 lemons, 3 tablespoons oregano.

Peel potatoes and cut into 6 long wedges. Whisk chopped rosemary, chopped garlic, salt/pepper, olive oil, lemon juice and water/broth together in medium bowl. Add peeled potato wedges to marinade and coat them completely. Transfer potatoes and marinade to roasting pan. Roast in 200Cº oven for 50-60 minutes until fork tender and golden brown. Serve warm and garnish with oregano. It’s better to add the oregano AFTER the potatoes are out of the oven because the oregano tends to burn at high temperatures.
