  • 3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 6 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice about 3 or 4 lemons
  • 1/3 cup olive oil or avocado oil
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/3 cup fresh parsley minced
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt more as desired
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 425ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cut potatoes into 1-inch cubes.
  • In a bowl whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, herbs, and spices.
  • Add potatoes to the bowl and toss together to coat
  • Transfer potatoes to the lined baking sheet, making sure that they are spaced evenly apart and that the flat side of the potatoes are touching the baking sheet. If needed, use two baking sheets to make sure they have at least ½” of space between them.
