Greek Lemon Potatoes Recipe


  • 1 large potato per person, peeled and quartered
  • 1/2 cup olive oil (125 ml)
  • juice of one lemon
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) dried oregano
  • 1/8 tsp (.5ml) ground black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 5 or 6 stamens of saffron
  • 2/3 cup (150 ml) hot water

    Peel and quarter the potatoes and place in a shallow roasting pan.

    Mix in the garlic and oregano and then drizzle with lemon juice and olive oil.

    Toss well.

    Add saffron to the hot water and carefully pour into the pan so as not to disturb the coating on the potatoes.

    Bake, uncovered in 375°F or 190°C oven for about 60 to 75 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding more hot water if needed to prevent sticking.
