Easy and delicious roasted potatoes

I hope you will enjoy these as much as I do (sometimes a little bit too much!). They are very easy to prepare and keep well in the fridge for a couple of days. The potatoes also taste amazing with a homemade garlic sauce (the recipe for that one will be posted soon)!


  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • olive oil
  • 10 garlic cloves (finely chopped or pressed)
  • freshly squeezed lemon juice (quarter of a lemon)
  • paprika powder
  • dried oregano
  • chilli sauce
  • salt


  • cut the potatoes up into small cubes and place in a sufficiently large bowl
  • drizzle with olive oil to make sure they are well covered with it (to prevent the potatoes from getting burnt) but are not swimming in it
  • add the garlic, lemon juice, paprika powder (in my experience at least half the small jar), a bit of oregano and chilli sauce and salt to taste
  • mix contents of the bowl well ensuring even distribution of the spices (TIP: use kitchen gloves to prevent your hands from getting very messy)
  • when you are mixing the bowl contents, you can add a bit more of olive oil if you think the potatoes are a bit too dry
  • place the potatoes into a large baking tray and bake for at least 40 minutes at 180°C
  • serve with your favourite meat or veggies and enjoy! 🙂
