Roasted Lemon Potatoes

The comforting flavor of crispy new potatoes is complemented by the tangy, zesty lightness of lemons. This is a great, super easy side dish to lighten up the mood. Feel free to toss a few twigs of rosemary if you have them, and to be generous with your pepper grinder.




  • 2 pounds young Yukon gold potatoes, washed, unpeeled, cut into wedges or large pieces

  • 5 tablespoons olive oil

  • Juice from 2 lemons

  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste ( I use lots of pepper!)


Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C

In a large bowl toss potato wedges with the rest of the ingredients

Spread potatoes in a single layer in a heatproof pan (line pan with parchment paper if you have it)

Roast until golden brown and tender, about 35-50 minutes

Taste and correct seasoning, adding more lemon juice, salt and pepper as needed

Enjoy immediately,
