Roasted Potatoes with Spices and Lemon

These roasted potatoes with lemon are cooked in the oven, not deep fried, to make them tasty and healthier at the same time.

Roasting any vegetable brings out their natural sweetness. 

I love roasted potatoes, especially when combined with spices. There is nothing like biting into a crispy outer skin and then having a creamy center surprise.

Be sure you cook in a hot oven to make sure that you get a crunchy outside.  I used oregano, paprika and garlic as well as lemons to season my potatoes.
