Greek Lemon Potatoes
Cup olive oil
Cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
Tablespoon chopped fresh oregano (or 1 teaspoon dried)
Tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley
Cloves of garlic, minced
Salt and pepper
Russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 6 or 8 wedges
Cup vegetable stock
Preheat the oven to 400°.
Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, parsley, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Spread the potatoes out evenly on a heavy, rimmed baking sheet and then pour about ¾ of the vinaigrette over them. Toss to coat the potatoes well. 
Pour ½ cup of the vegetable stock around the potatoes. Roast in the oven, turning every 10 minutes to prevent them from sticking and adding more stock as needed, until tender and lightly browned (about 45 minutes to an hour).
Remove from the oven, drizzle with the remaining vinaigrette, and serve.
Makes 4 servings

I've always loved the oven roasted potatoes you get in Greek restaurants. I'm definitely going to try this recipe.
