Chef’s Tips:
  • * Dukkah is a fragrant Middle Eastern spice and nut blend which often includes sesame, cumin, and coriander seed. To make your own, toast ½ cup almonds or hazelnuts in a pan over medium heat 2 minutes or until fragrant. Add 2 tablespoons sesame seed; toast until light golden brown. Transfer mixture to food processor. Add 1 teaspoon ground cumin, ½ teaspoon ground coriander, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper. Pulse until mixture is coarsely chopped.
