Dukkah is completely addictive and so incredibly flavorful. It's a Middle Eastern spice mix that has a nice, smoky, nutty and slightly salty flavor with a delicious crunchy texture.
It's easy to make at home and is an great low-sodium seasoning for all kinds of dishes. I literally go through jars of this stuff, I love it that much.
There are a lot of versions of this spicy nut mix - some are spicier, others sweeter. Just about every mixture variation includes nuts (most often hazelnuts, but others can be used alone or in combination), sesame seeds, coriander and cumin.
It's fun to create combinations with different types of nuts and seeds. I love adding more sesame seeds, depending on my taste preference for the week.
In the Middle East, dukkah is usually eaten with flatbread. It’s also eaten with raw vegetables. It's a great snack on its own, too. See below for more ideas.
