These Greek-style lemon potatoes are golden, fluffy, and absolutely loaded with flavour. Cooked in a flavourful lemon, garlic and herb broth, they are the perfect accompaniment to your favourite Greek dishes.
Fans of Greek food, rejoice! Your favourite Greek lemon potatoes can now be made in the comfort of your own kitchen. Famously flavourful, tender and golden, these potatoes are a Greek restaurant staple for a reason. Greek lemon potatoes only require simple supermarket ingredients, and will be ready in under 60 minutes in the oven, making this the perfect side for a weeknight dinner or weekend treat.
If you’re looking for perfectly browned and crunchy roast potatoes, you might want to mosey on over to my favourite crispy roast potato recipe. Greek potatoes do have some crunch and are a lovely golden brown; however, as they are baked in broth, they will not brown and crisp up in the same way as a traditional roast potato recipe. What they lack in shattering crispness, they more than compensate with bucketloads of lemon, herb and garlic flavour.
If that sounds good to you, then ready yourself for your impending potato addiction – it’s about to get flavourful in here!
Greek potato essentials
To make these dreamy potatoes a reality, you will need only the following simple ingredients:
Fluffy roasting potatoes such as Maris Piper, Desiree, King Edward or Apache.
Deeply caramelised roasted garlic will lend umami oomph to your potatoes, imparting creaminess and deep flavour.
The star of the show (other than the potatoes), it wouldn’t be Greek lemon potatoes without the lemon!
Greek or regular oregano adds herbaceousness and freshness to the potatoes.
A staple of Greek and Mediterranean cooking, olive oil is essential in adding crispness and golden colour to the potatoes.
The stock (any stock of your preference will work here, we’ve used veggie stock to keep it vegan) adds moisture, flavour and fluffiness to your potatoes.
