Directions:
Toss together potatoes, lemon juice, oil, spices and garlic in a deep flat pan 8 x 12 inches. Add the water. Bake uncovered for about 1 1/2 hours at 475. Stir every 20 minutes adding more water if necessary to prevent sticking. Be careful not to burn the potatoes during the last 30 minutes. During the final 15 to 20 minutes allow the water to evaporate until only the oil is left. Garnish with parsley or feta or Parmesan and serve.

I got this recipe from our good friends (and Idaho potato farmers), Dean & Renee Gibson. It is so yummy, and far from low-cal!
