Skinny Cumin Potatoes

If you’ve seen the recipes that we’ve shared with you lately you’ve probably noticed that quite a few of them have a spice in common that you may not have too much experience with—cumin. You’ve probably seen cumin in our Shakshuka recipe, Grilled Eggplant  and our Cumin-Crusted Scallops with Cucumber and Pine Nut Salad!! Cumin is native from the east Mediterranean to India and so it makes sense that in our Mediterranean –style dishes, you’ll see it! It’s used whole as a seed and in ground, as we use it in most of our dishes. Cumin is often added to chili powders and curry powder and it’s a great addition to lentil black bean and garbanzo bean dishes! And like other spices, it’s packed with phytonutrients and it’s calorie free, so feel free to season away!
