"Love this! Cumin is one of my favorite spices and this recipe captures that wonderful flavor in an easy to fix, healthy recipe. We eat this with brown rice and enjoy left overs the next day. There's nothing not to like."

"I like the extra jazzy spice in this recipe, and it was easy to cut down to just two servings. I will make this again, and pass it along to the new bride in my family."
