One day the authors of The Mystic Cookbook tossed whole cumin seeds in with potatoes, cauliflower, and coconut oil, and this delicious dish was born. This is an especially handy recipe for a large group since the preparation is relatively quick and easy, and then it simply goes in the oven for about an hour.
