Greek Cumin Potatoes

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Lou van

This is taken from Tonia Buxton, a Greek / English presenter who travelled around the Greek islands presenting "My Greek Kitchen". This is a recipe that she apparently got from Crete, its very easy and tasty and great served with her recipe for Oregano and Cinnamon Roast Chicken (which I've also posted) and salad. PLEASE NOTE THESE ARE NOT ROAST POTATOES!

We really liked these, though mine did not really come out roasted. The flavor was quite nice though ~ will definitely make them again. Really liked the mix of cumin and cinnamon and the onions added just they right touch. Thanks for posting ~ made for ZWT6 - GREECE and the Queens of Quisine!
