Confession Friday.  That’s a thing right?  Well, I hope so because I am confessing that I love Greek Style Potatoes and that they make my life a better and happier place.  Seriously, these Greek Style Potatoes are so crispy and crunchy on the outside while staying so steamy hot and soft on the inside.  Certainly, mine and Andrews’s favourite go-to-snack and can be made in such large quantities to please a whole family for your next feast!

Truly nothing better than using a natural, organic ingredient to create a plant-based, healthy and nutrient-filled dish.

Best part about this dish is all you need is two bowls for stirring and combining and that is basically it.  Greek Style Potatoes involve minimal mess and leave you with time to get organized while they are still cooking.

Ingredients

For potatoes:

  • 5 large russet potatoes, cut into wedges
  • juice of 1-2 lemons
  • 5 tbsp olive oil
  • season to taste – good quality salt is great here
  • 2-3 tbsp. oregano
  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder or 4 garlic cloves, finely minced

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F
