  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees F (245 degrees C).
  2. Place the cubed potatoes, water, lemon juice, vegetable oil, and olive oil in a 12x18 inch baking dish or roasting pan. Season with oregano, salt, pepper, and garlic.
  3. Roast, uncovered, in the preheated oven until the potatoes are tender and golden brown and the water has evaporated, about 1 1/2 hours. Stir the potatoes every 20 minutes as they bake, adding more water as necessary to prevent sticking. Allow the water to evaporate during the final 15 to 20 minutes of cooking, but be careful that the potatoes do not burn. Stir in the chopped fresh parsley, and serve.

These smelled heavenly while they cooked. And they're super easy to make. Unfortunately, they were FAR too lemony for my family. I'll try these again, but only use half the lemon juice.

This dish is so flavorful! And the garlic and lemon compliment each other perfectly without over powering one another. I did use only olive oil instead of vegetable oil & olive oil but other th...

What a quick, simple and wonderful recipe. No leftovers that night. I kept the skins on poataoes for that extra texture.

Very tasty with these modifcations, triple the garlic, double the oregano and black pepper, use chicken stock in place of water and omit salt (as the chicken stock removes the need for it).

These potatoes are awesome! They are better than ones served in a Greek restaurant. The only thing I substituted was extra virgin olive oil for the vegetable oil. I also didn't have any fresh pa...

I didn't get the chance to do these right as someone threw a 6 week old puppy out in front of our house and I was busy debugging her. Lost track of when to stir and add water, etc. and they sti...

These were very yummy!! We don't often eat potatoes, and I liked the sound of these as I love lemon! I scaled the recipe back, using red potatoes and at least double the garlic called for. I ...

Thanks for a fabulous recipe. Made nearly as directed except didn't peel the red potatoes, must have cut smaller chunks of potatoes as mine were done in much less time, tripled the garlic, and ...

Turned out great once I made some changes. I only used olive oil and less of it (just enough to cover bottom of pan and little more) and I used 2 cups veggie broth instead of water and no salt. ...
