This is a good recipe for people who are trying to improve their diet! Delicious and super! I got this recipe from an empanada recipe. This was supposed to be a filling for the empanada, but when I was making it one day I messed up the dough and ended up not knowing what to do with the filling, so I just took a piece of bread and slapped some of the filling on bread; and I was like 'This isn't so bad.' Ever since then, it's one of my favorite recipes. Hope you guys like it! Garnish with kale leaves if desired.

This is a tasty little side dish. I topped it with smoked paprika.. mmm good. The only thing I found this needed was some olive oil on the bread. I tried it without oil and it was dry.. a little olive oil was perfect

In the end it was tasty - BUT the instructions in this recipe do not yield the results as described. 2 tsp of olive oil in a nonstick pan did not make for tender broccoli after 4 minutes unless the broccoli which I cut into small pieces needed to be 'finely chopped'?(so I gave it some more time - standing over the hot pan and stirring) The potatoes where very soft after the instructed 12-15 minutes - - It was the broccoli which needed softening. I cooked and mashed and it took a lot of effort and strength to try to 'mash' the broccoli - and all the mashing was just starching out the potatoes. In the end I shut the gas and put the mixture into a glass Corningware baking dish and tightly covered it. And waited the 10 -15 minutes for the broccoli to truly finish softening. When I chose this recipe I did not expect needing to stand over a hot frying pan stirring for close to 15 minutes and then finding that the mashing needed some serious muscle

Yum! The cumin really works with these two ingredients! I added some olive oil to the french bread and that really made a difference! But it was an easy and simple recipe and delicious!

Pleasantly surprised with how well the cumin worked in this dish. Easy and fast would certainly make again as a side dish or pair it with a salad for lunch. Thanks for sharing!
