Potatoes roasted with garlic, feta and oregano

This recipe is based on one by Nigella Lawson, which I decided to try when I found myself with an unexpected glut of feta, potatoes and oregano (somewhat bizarrely).  We had it on it’s own with a tomato salad for lunch, but I suspect it would be better as an accompaniment to something a little more substantial.

Potatoes roasted with garlic, oregano and feta


1.25kg of potatoes, unpeeled and cut into 2cm cubes

half a bulb of garlic, crushed

2 1/2 tsp dried oregano

125g feta cheese

handful of fresh oregano


Preheat the oven to 220C and mix the oil and potatoes into a shallow roasting tin, large nough for the potatoes to sit in one layer.  Add the dried oregano and garlic and roast for 50-60 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.

Scatter with the crumbled feta, fresh oregano if you have any and serve hot.
