My dukkah with a difference..

Dukkah is typically a mixture of roasted nuts, seeds and spices, all chopped to a tasty crunchy crumb mixture. It is very often mixed with olive oil and bread is dipped into it. It is documented as being Egyptian, and a version features in pretty much every Middle Eastern cookbook I own. There are often slight differences between the choices of nuts used, or the addition of roasted chickpeas, or not…like with all recipes, everyone creates their own version.

I’ve blogged about and made it before, and many times since in various guises, and I’ve been known to eat it unadulterated with a spoon from the jar, or thrown it over salads or vegetables, or included it in dips and marinades; it adds a crunch to all sorts of dishes, as well as great flavour.

I recently made it again with a twist..the addition of roasted hemp seeds for some extra flavour and goodness..

This dukkah is a mixture of..

Roasted chickpeas

Roasted hemp seeds

Roasted sesame seeds

Roasted hazelnuts

Roasted coriander seeds

Roasted cumin seeds 


Each of the ingredients need to be spread in a single layer on a baking sheet and roasted in an oven at 180-200C. 

You need to watch them, as they all take different times to roast, and to ensure that they don’t burn or overcook as they will become bitter and ruin the mixture. 

Let them cool and them chop them all together to a crumb texture in a food blender. 

Then use at will!

Today mine became part of a salad with quinoa, grated carrot and courgette, lemon juice and olive oil. Big yum!!!! 

Better late than never..I’m taking this along to this week’s Fiesta Friday, co hosted this week by lovely ladies, Sarah and Kaila, and hope that everyone will enjoy the freshness of this salad 🙂

    I really love dukkah and I think your recipe sounds delicious. Never had with chickpeas or hemp seeds and I love that you added to this mix. It’s so good on almost anything and adds so much to the flavor while adding extra nutritional value.

    My favorite part about the dukkah are the fresh flavors and colors. I also like your idea to add hemp to this treat. So far I’ve only had hemp milk, so I’m intrigued as to how similar the two are in taste. Thank you so much for bringing this dukkah to the fiesta this week! Happy FF, and have a wonderful week!! 🙂

        Take lots of pictures. I’ve never been that far north. I hope you get to see some Northern Lights and maybe a moose! Glad you’re in spring weather. Colorado is still in winter mode, at least through today. Saturday is supposed to be nicer. The moisture is great though. Take care. Love to all of you. Jared’s Mom
