Dukkah, a "spice" blend for nearly everything

if I were forced to eat inanimate objects, I would grab olive oil and dip them in dukkah. And I would be a happy camel because that's what camels eat. Just look at those feisty, noble creatures!

This versatile spice and nut blend can be added as a garnish to soups, salads, sandwiches, eggs, meat, or it is delicious in olive oil and dipped with bread, roasted with nuts.. you get the idea. 


What is it like?

- Nutty 

- Salty

- Cumin-y



1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup almonds
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp coriander
1 tsp fennel
1/2-1 tsp sea salt, or to taste

Place all ingredients in large skillet, except salt, over medium heat. Allow to toast watching closely until they start to darken and smell strongly. Then transfer mix to a bowl to cool. Grind in a spice grinder and then add salt coarse sea salt. Store in an airtight continuer to 1-2 weeks.

Delicious with Garbanzo Bean snack or stirred into olive oil and dipped with bread.

If you do not like a spice in the recipe, simply leave it out! The blend will still taste delicious.
