Add EVOO, cumin seeds, and 1/2 the amount of the paprika, chili powder and turmeric to a sauté pan and heat over medium heat. Keep the spices moving around the pan.
Once the spices become fragrant and the oil is hot, add the onions and toss to coat them well. Sauté for a couple of minutes until they become transparent, then add in garlic and keep on stirring the mixture for another minute or so.
Then add in the rice, tomato, frozen veggies, and the rest of the spices along well the salt and combine well. Allow this to simmer for about 3 to 5 more minutes until everything seems to thicken a bit.
Then remove pan from heat and add beans and parsley.
For a nice added flavor enhancer, squeeze some fresh juice of a lime onto your bowl. Mmmmm. Enjoy!
