The refrigerator light goes on...

Sweet vegetables that have been roasted make the best spreads.

Cumin

Cumin is a thin spindle shaped seed that resembles a caraway seed. It has been used as a spice for millennia. When the spice is ground, it has a slightly hot, piquant flavor that is used in Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, Spanish and Asian cuisines. It was imported to the Americas and is a staple in Mexican and South American recipes.

A little goes a long way and too much can quickly overpower a dish. As with any spice, buying whole seeds and grinding them results in a much fresher flavor.
