Top Review by ImPat

I scaled back for 3 serves and put less than the tablespoon of ground cumin and used 2 teaspoons of dried thyme leaves (our recent heat wave has had a toll on my herb garden) but the cumin was way overpowering and was all you could taste and as I write this review I wonder if the recipe should read teaspoon instead of tablespoon so with that said I will try the recipe again but use a teaspoon instead of a tablespoon, thank you Dominick & Amanda, made for Name that Ingredient tag game.
