dukkah recipe

makes 1/2 cup

Dukkah is an Egyptian spice and nut blend that's often served with flatbread an oil.  It's a great way to add flavor and crunch to salads, sautéed vegetables, soups and more. It takes about 10 minutes to make and I promise you'll find tons of uses for this nutty, sweet and cooling flavor blend.     

1/4 cup pistachios
1/4 cup cashews
2 tablespoons coriander seeds
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 tablespoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1. Toast pistachios and cashews in the oven at 300 for 8 minutes.  Remove and let cool.

2. Meanwhile, in a dry skillet, toast coriander, sesame, cumin and fennel seeds on low just until fragrant, 2 minutes. Cool.

3. Combine the spices with the nuts and rough chop or pulse in the food processor.  Store in a sealed mason jar at room temperature for up to a month.
