Greek Lemon Potatoes

(Patates Fournou Lemonates)
Unlike traditional roasted potatoes these lemon potatoes are soft, moist, tender and melting. The zing from the lemon cuts through the richness of lamb or meat dishes and is truly more-dish! This to me, is the essence of everything I love about Greece – do your tastebuds a favour…

12 potatoes, peeled
90ml olive oil
finely grated zest of 2 lemons
juice of 2 lemons
10ml salt
a handful of thyme leaves

Preheat your oven to 180℃.
Quarter each potato lengthwise and spread them in a large roasting tin.
Drizzle with the olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice and sprinkle over the salt and thyme leaves.
Mix together with your hands so that the potato is covered with the mixture.
Roast for 1 hour, turning once or twice during cooking.
Add another sprinkle of salt and serve.
