Greek Cumin Potatoes created by KristinV

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!

    This recipe was fantastically easy!! I left the skins on my potatoes. I cut the cinnamon back to 1tsp but still thought it was a bit much. I had the same feeling as MissMaggie in that I was concerned that they wouldn't come out a roast potatoes but they certainly did. Made for the Greek leg of ZWT 6 (Voracious Vagabonds)

    Hey Lou van - this was just wonderful. I didn't change a thing. Initially I thought - hell these will not be roast potatoes - but it turned out just RIGHT. I served it with roast chicken with a stuffing made of basil leaves and sun dried tomatoes. Yummy - thank you ever so much for this lovely recipe
