Greek style roasted potatoes are flavourful, lemony, and perfectly crispy on the outside, and soft in the middle. They are oil free, made using only 7 simple ingredients, and the perfect side dish to compliment your main course. These Greek potatoes are naturally gluten free, and their also vegan, making them suitable for any diet.
Since these Greek potatoes cook in a bath of broth, lemon and herbs, they really absorb a TON of flavour. Each bite is loaded with deliciousness. Now if you prefer a crispier potato, these may not be the ones for you. Instead, give these Crispy Salt & Vinegar Potato Wedges a try. But if you’re still with me, and don’t mind a softer in the middle, perfectly moist, and super flavourful potato, this is for you!
How to make Greek Potatoes?
Well, the prep work is actually quite simple. Once you’ve peeled and quartered your potatoes, you will combine all the remaining ingredients in a small bowl or measuring cup. Then pour that mixture over your potatoes in a deep baking dish to avoid spills. Cover your dish with aluminum foil and roast for 30 minutes, before uncovering and roasting some more. You want most of the liquids to be absorbed, but not completely dried out. Usually, another 30 minutes does the trick, but this may vary depending on the size of your baking dish, and how close together your potatoes are.
Once the potatoes are ready, you may sprinkle some cilantro or parsley over top to add a little colour, and serve with slices of lemon if desired. These potatoes pair really well with these Vegan Chicken Burgers or this super simple 5 Minute Chickpea Salad Sandwich.
