Oven-Roasted Greek Potatoes
- 8 large potatoes, peeled, cut into large wedges (about 6-7 wedges per potato)

- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- 1 lemon - juiced
- sea salt
- fresh coarse ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 420°F
Put all the ingredients into a baking pan large enough to hold them.
Season generously with sea salt and black pepper.
Make sure your hands are very clean and put them in the pan and give everything a toss to distribute.
The garlic will drop into the water/oil solution but its flavour will permeate the potatoes, and this way, it won't burn.
Bake for 40 minutes.
When a nice golden-brown crust has formed on the potatoes, give them a stir to bring the white underside up, season lightly with a bit more sea salt and pepper and just a light sprinkling of oregano.
Add 1/2 cup more water if pan appears to be getting dry, and pop back into oven to brown other side of potatoes.
This will take about another 40 minutes.
Melt a bouillon cube in the water; if you do, make sure to cut back some on the salt.
