Product Description

Cumin Seeds

Cumin is one of the oldest plants known to men. It was used as a spice by many civilizations, including Celts and ancient Romans. Today, cumin is cultivated in France, India, Turkey, North Africa, Brazil, and Egypt.

Cumin seeds are valued primarily because of cumin essential oil, which contains up to 70% of carvone. In addition, they also contain up to 22% of fatty oils, proteins, pigments, resins, tannins, and other useful substances.

Cumin seeds contain a large amount of nutrients, including pyridoxine, riboflavin, thiamin, tocopherol, β-carotene, ascorbic acid, and phylloquinone. They are also rich in calcium, potassium, iron, and phosphorus. All of these components are necessary to ensure the normal functioning of the body.

Cumin seeds are a very healthy spice. They help the body assimilate fats and improve the function of the gallbladder. The distinctive taste of these seeds can be combined with almost any dish as they do not overpower any taste. Cumin seeds can be eaten dried or fresh.

Health Benefits

  • Excellent antiseptic properties.
    A pinch of cumin seeds helps cure food poisoning by causing the fermentation processes in the digestive tract. They fully eliminate harmful bacteria in drinking water, so it is recommended to put 2-3 teaspoons of the seeds into previously unfiltered water that you are intending to drink.
  • Expectorant action.
    Tea made from cumin seeds helps remove excess mucus and therefore, it is recommended for allergies. It is also recommended to drink tea with these seeds when the first symptoms of colds appear.
  • Normalization of the digestive system.
    In combination with turmeric and pepper, cumin seeds help the normal operation of the digestive system. By taking them after a meal, you can reduce abdominal pain.
  • Improvement of appetite.
    If you have little to no appetite, add some cumin seeds to your food. Your appetite will improve right away.
  • Antispasmodic properties.
    Cumin seeds help relieve symptoms of bronchitis, pneumonia, and even tuberculosis. They help remove phlegm from the respiratory organs and relieve bronchopneumonia.

  • 2 large sweet potatoes (~300 g | organic when possible)
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) grape seed oil
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt –
  • optional: pinch cayenne pepper


  • 1 15-ounce (425 g) can chickpeas, rinsed, drained and thoroughly dried in a towel
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) grape seed oil
  • 1 tsp fresh or dried thyme
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground cumin –
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • scant 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • optional: Healthy pinch each ground coriander + cardamom

FOR SERVING optional

  • 4 Garlic Herb Flatbreads (or store-bought flatbreads or pita)
  • Garlic Dill Hummus Sauce
  • Toasted sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds
  • Dried cranberries, chopped
  • Fresh arugula or parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Thoroughly wash and dry sweet potatoes, then slice (skin on) into bite-sized rounds/pieces.
  3. Add to a mixing bowl with grape seed oil, thyme, cinnamon, sea salt and cayenne (optional). Toss to coat, then arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  4. To the same mixing bowl, add rinsed, dried chickpeas, and grape seed oil, thyme, cinnamon, cumin, paprika, sea salt, and coriander + cardamom (optional).
  5. Toss to coat, then arrange on baking sheet with sweet potatoes where space permits. (Depending on size of baking sheet, you may need to use a second to accommodate all potatoes and chickpeas).
  6. Bake for a total of 25 minutes, flipping/stirring once at the 15-minute mark to ensure even cooking. You’ll know they’re done when the potatoes are fork tender, and the chickpeas are golden brown, dehydrated, and slightly crispy. Remove from oven and set aside.
  7. In the meantime, prepare toppings and dressing (if using).
  8. Once potatoes and chickpeas are finished baking, wrap flatbreads in a damp towel and warm in the still warm oven for 1-2 minutes (or in the microwave for 30 seconds) to soften and make more pliable.
  9. To assemble, top each wrap with a portion of sweet potatoes and chickpeas. Add desired toppings, such as dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, arugula, and Garlic-Dill Hummus Sauce (recipe link above).
  10. Best when fresh, though leftovers keep separately in the refrigerator up to 3 days.
