  • 1/2 lemon
  • 220 g new or salad potatoes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 25 g feta cheese - cubed
  • 1 sprig oregano
  • 1 sprig thyme
  • salt and pepper - to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 170°C (Fan) / 340°F (Fan) / Gas Mark 5.
  • Cut the lemon into segments. Clean the potatoes, cutting the larger ones in half. Cut feta into 1 cm cubes.
  • Put the potatoes in a pan, cover with water, a pinch of salt, bring to the boil and then turn the ring down to a gentle simmer. Cook for ten minutes.
  • Drain potatoes and add to a large roasting dish. Each piece should have plenty of room. Add the olive oil, and turn the potatoes with a spatula to coat evenly.
  • Add the feta, lemon and herbs.
  • Roast the potatoes for 25 minutes, until cooked through. Serve Greek lemon potatoes immediately.


  • To avoid the potatoes overcooking and breaking up, don’t simmer them too fast. The water should be just moving. 
  • Try making this with different herbs or add some Greek olives. 
  • Greek lemon potatoes work well with fish dishes. Alternatively, serve them as part of a mezze or a barbecue spread.
