My first introduction to dukkah was at a local restaurant and had the consistency of a paste, rather than the traditional dry blend of nuts and spices.
I loved it so much I created my own version at home. Which I also loved. And have never made it since.
Blame it on writing a food blog that impels me to constantly create new recipes. Or condemn me for laziness – I’ll let you choose. That’s why when Epicure got in touch with me to ask if I was interested in some new additions to my spice cabinet, I jumped on the Middle Eastern flavours.
This dukkah seasoning was easy to prepare and will work with whatever nut or seed you have in your pantry. I used sunflower seeds in my dukkah and loved it! It was warm and aromatic and just a little salty.
Dukkah is common served with olive oil and flatbread or crackers for dipping. Given how much I love gluten-free flatbreads, I thought I would make a dukkah-spiced flatbread for a 3-for-1 deal. The olive oil, the flatbread and the dukkah are all together in this super easy recipe.
