We see you, lonely jar of cumin, hiding in the back of the pantry. We used one teaspoon and then left you to collect dust. (Sorry.)

Well, grab a cloth and wipe that container off! All of these recipes utilize this warm and earthy spice, but they all taste wildly different. From a North African egg dish to a Mexican-inspired taco pasta to drool-inducing Indian chana saag, you’ll travel the whole world in a week thanks to this one spice.

Before you know it, you’ll be tossing that jar because it’s empty, not expired!
