excellent recipe. taste just like my greek mother in law cookes them. yummy!!!  ;D


Oh! I almost forgot.  I also only used 1 tbsp. oil.  I just tossed them a couple times during the cooking and sprayed them with some non-stick spray, and they were perfect.  I don't like a lot of oil and the tbsp was plenty.  Just don't let them cook too long in between tossing. 


These were good and a nice change for someone who eats a lot of roasted potatoes.  I've done lots of different spices, but never used lemon juice.  I used 1/4 cup lemon juice for 3 potatoes, and next time I'll probably cut back. They were a bit too tangy, it overpowered the other seasonings.  I was thinking of doing 3 tbs. lemon juice and maybe 1 or 2 tbs veggie broth.  I will definately add some grated lemon peel next time!  Without it the potatoes are just tangy, you can't really tell it's lemon juice, but with it...mmmm.  I also used 2-1/2 cloves garlic, which might have been a bit too much unless you like'em garlicky!  But man, my house was stinky!  But overall they were definately good, and I will be making them again.  I think in addition to lemon peel, I'm going to throw in some artichoke hearts, tomatoes and capers.  I'll report on that later.  Thanks for the recipe.

My husband says these are the best potatoes he's ever had!  They seem to be infused with lemon juice...and very moist but not greasy.
