Cumin Nutrition

Cumin is a super nutritious spice and, in my opinion, isn’t used nearly enough in cooking!

It’s most popular in cuisines from the Middle East and India, but it brings such a great punch of flavour that it can really improve a wide range of dishes, both in terms of taste and nutrition.

Studies have been conducted into the possible anti-diabetic properties of this healthy little seed. The results of these studies demonstrate that cumin can help to manage blood sugar levels.

Cumin has been used throughout history to aid the digestive process and ease indigestion. It’s also rich in magnesium, which you must obtain through dietary sources as the body doesn’t produce it.

Ingredients:

To make this salad for two people you will need the following ingredients:

  • 1 ripe avocado, diced
  • 1 cup of cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup of black olives
  • 2 cups of pre-cooked quinoa
  • 400g of canned chickpeas, drained
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cumin
  • Handful of fresh coriander, chopped
  • 1/2 a cup of raw cashew nuts
  • 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil
  • A dash of salt and pepper

Method:

Simply add all of the ingredients into a big salad bowl and mix together well before serving onto two plates. It’s that simple!
