Yield: 8 servings

1 pound new potatoes, cleaned and dried
1 bunch garlic scapes, chopped into 1-inch pieces (about ½ cup)
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, optional
Kosher salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 450°.

Cut potatoes evenly into pieces roughly the size of your thumb. Put potatoes in a medium bowl and add garlic scapes; drizzle with oil and sprinkle with the lemon juice. Toss to combine all the ingredients. Spread evenly on a baking sheet coated lightly with nonstick spray and season with kosher salt and pepper. Roast potatoes for 20 minutes or until fork tender. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
