Dukkah Recipe

Dukkah, is a traditional Egyptian blend of nuts, seeds, and warm spices. It’s been around since the age of ancient Egypt, but it is now widely popular throughout the Middle East and the world (you may have even found a little jar of it at your local grocery store).  It is fantastic on a picnic platter (dip bread in olive oil and then the dukkah) or used to flavour crumbs for fish or meat.


  • walnuts & almonds
  • sesame seeds
  • sea salt & black pepper
  • cumin & corriander seeds


  • Toast the whole nuts in a skillet until they’re starting to smell nice and fragrant.
  • Add the sesame seeds, so they get a chance to toast as well, keep an eye on them so they dont burn.
  • Remove the nuts and seeds from the heat, and transfer them to a food processor.
  • Add the spices, and process the mixture until the nuts are broken down to the point that they resemble coarse sand. Don’t go too long, or you could end up with spicy nut butter
