Maybe your grandmother made Greek lemon potatoes every Sunday for family dinner night—or maybe you wish she had. But either way, it’s never too late to create your own legacy of food memories. And what better place to begin than with a hearty dish like this one.

To get you started, we’ve brought you a few easy greek recipes that your family, as well as your guests, are just going to love. As with any recipe, feel free to incorporate a couple of your own favorite ingredients that will make the dish remarkably yours. 

Zesty Greek Lemon Roasted Potatoes 

Ingredients:

  • About 6 medium Potatoes
  • 1 ½ Cups Chicken Broth (or vegetable stock for vegan) 
  • ½ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ⅓ Cup Lemon Juice (Fresh, if available)
  • 3 crushed cloves of Garlic 
  • 1 Tablespoon Oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions: 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Peel and half potatoes lengthwise and place them in a large rectangular baking dish. 
  • In a large bowl: Combine salt, pepper, oregano, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, and broth
  • Pour the mixture over the potatoes. Cover the dish with foil and roast for about 40 minutes. Then remove the foil, toss the potatoes again— to make sure they are well coated in the mixture—then continue to roast for about another 20 minutes.  
  • Once they are perfectly tender, yet crispy on the edges, let the potatoes cool a bit before serving. This dish is just wonderful garnished with fresh parsley and lemon wedges.  And it’s just perfect for a hearty side dish. Enjoy!

  • Then spread the potatoes evenly onto a large baking dish. Pour the stock over the top and roast for about 1 hour, or until potatoes are perfectly done. (Tender in the center and deliciously crisp on the edges).
