The combination of potato and thyme and garlic in the oven is … tasty and not surprising. But the tangerine peel, on the other hand, is the secret ingredient here. And it’s a perfect combination. A very tasty potato dish. From Palestine. And Abu Julia – Mr Julia – is a Palestinian… and why his name is Julia … or that he calls himself Julia… no idea…. he just cooks really well, that’s the main thing…


  • 2 tangarines (for their peel)

  • 8 large potatoes

  • 3 cloves garlic

  • 10 sprigs thyme

  • 20 leaves fresh mint

  • olive oil

  • salt and pepper


  • Peel the potatoes and cut them in half. Cook them for 8 minutes so that they are already on the way to being cooked, but actually are not yet. Drain them and let them steam dry.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
    Pour 50 ml of olive oil into an oven dish. Squeeze the garlic and spread it over the bottom.
    Place the sprigs of thyme at the bottom and also finely chop the mint leaves and place them on top.
    Peel the tangerines and squeeze the peel briefly over the oil and then put the peels in. Stir well. Then put the potatoes on top. Pour some more olive oil over the potatoes. And put some salt and pepper on top.
  • Place the dish in the oven and let everything bake well for about 30 minutes.
