Quick Cumin-Rich Tomatoes

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Mme M

This is a quick, even hastily prepared side dish. It goes well with Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and North African foods, and also amazingly well with curries. It's low cal, and fat-free.

Wow, it really doesn't get any easier than this! I used a 28oz can of tomatoes, though & barely had enough for 3 people. BUT, we loved it & ignored the 'serving size.' :)
