* 4 large potatoes, cubed
* 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
* 2 cups chopped fresh cilantro
* 4 cloves garlic, minced
* 1/2 teaspoon cumin
* 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
* salt to taste

2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the cilantro and garlic; cook and stir for about 5 minutes. After draining the potatoes, add them to the skillet along with the cumin, lemon juice and salt. Stir to coat the potatoes, and serve.
