Lemony Greek-Style Roasted Potatoes

YOU NEED TO MAKE THESE POTATOES. Please, do it. Honestly, they were the greatest thing I have eaten in a long time and I want to make them everyday. I can't even describe how delicious these are. They do take a good hour to roast but it's SO SO SO worth it! Best roasted potatoes in the world, I tell you.

Lemony Potatoes from Veganomicon

2 1/2 lbs Yukon Gold (yellow flesh) potatoes (medium to small potatoes work best)
1/3 C olive oil
6 cloves garlic, chopped finely
1/2 C freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 C vegetable broth
2 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp salt
1 tsp tomato paste
Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Peel the potatoes, slice in half lengthwise, and slice each half into wedges no more then 3/4″ thick.
In a large, deep baking pan or casserole dish (at least 10 17-inches or bigger), combine the olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, vegetable broth, oregano, salt, and tomato paste. Add the peeled, sliced potatoes. Sprinkle with freshly ground pepper and toss the potatoes to cover with the sauce. Cover the pan tightly with foil (or use lid of casserole dish), place in the oven, and bake for 30-35 minutes until the potatoes are almost done. Several times during the baking process, remove the pan from the oven, uncover, stir the potatoes, place the cover back, and return the pan to the oven.
Uncover the pan one last time, stir the potatoes again, and bake, uncovered, for an additional 15-20 minutes, until most of the sauce has evaporated and some of the potatoes have just started to brown on their edges.
