If you are tired of the plain old roast potatoes, this recipe is a must.  This dish reinvents the old roast potatoe and breathes life into your meal.  



  • 2 kg potatoes, peeled and cut to the size of golf balls
  • 8-9 cloves garlic, skins left on and squashed
  • 2 oranges, use only the peel, cut into long thin strips

  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
