Lemon Rosemary Potatoes

Potatoes. We love them! I prefer sweet potatoes and yams (so does baby), and my husband and 4-year old love white potatoes. So, I roast them in different ways or simply bake them. This recipe for Lemon Rosemary Potatoes is from Vive le Vegan!

The lemon juice is added both before baking and then a little more just before the potatoes are completely cooked. The lemony flavor really soaks into those taters, and combined with the rosemary, olive oil, and salt... well, it's just delicious, "moreish" comfort food! These potatoes are meant to be a side dish, but if you're like my husband (who I affectionately call)...

(except he doesn't have a moustache!)... you can make them your main meal!

I just love potatoes. I also bake them with rosemary, garlic and olive oil but I've never tried lemon.

I made these as a side dish the other night to go with 'meat loaf' and we all enjoyed them, particularly my Little One who ate all the potatoes on his plate!

We'll definitely be using the recipe again!

I love potatoes! My favorite way is {blush} to nuke it and serve with Earth Balance.

oh snap, I have some lemon juice, potatoes & rosemary. Would bottled organic lemon juice work, or should I stick to fresh? My neighbor unloaded a small bottle when he moved, and I don't have much to do with it besides tahini drssing.

Dreena said...

Yeah, sconed, go ahead and use the bottled lemon juice. I don't use it myself, since I always keep lemons on hand, but because this isn't a 'fresh' dish, I think the bottled juice would work just fine!

Dreena said...

Dreena, they were really tasty. My boyfriend, who I did not think a rosemary fan, loved them. They were a little more tangy than fresh lemon juice, but still great.

Dreena said...

Thanks for the feedback, Jess, I'm glad you both liked them. Love the new pic of you, by the way! :)
