Cumin is a versatile spice with a warm, nutty flavor that is used in many cuisines worldwide. These oblong seeds are toasted for extra flavor and used in spice blends, rubs, marinades, and sauces. Sprinkle ground cumin over dishes like soups and stews, or use whole seeds to add flavor to roasted vegetables and meats. You can also use cumin to make homemade spice blends or season grains like rice.
