Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1.5 pounds potatoes
  • cup lemon juice (and reserve the zest of two lemons. You can skip the zest but it adds great flavor)
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoon fresh oregano (or 2 teaspoon dry)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place the potatoes in a baking dish large enough to hold them in a single layer.
  • Add the lemon juice and zest, garlic, vegetable stock, olive oil, salt and ground black pepper and oregano and mix everything.
  • Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. About halfway through, turn the potatoes once with a spatula to make sure they roast evenly. Continue roasting until all the potatoes are slightly crispy and fork-tender and the stock has evaporated.
  • Serve hot or at room temperature.
