Dukkah, you may well say what is this and why is it good for me to eat. Dukkah is an Egyptian condiment including a mixture of various nuts, seeds and spices.

It makes a great introduction to the evening meal served with olive oil and stoneground or sough dough bread. A wonderful accompliment to soup in the winter months.

It can also be used as a crusty topping to vegetable bakes or as a coating to your favourite meat.

The health benefits of Dukkah are that it is a great source of healthy protein, aids digestion, balances sugar levels with the herbs and spices used.


Now remember I said this was Easy to make Dukkah, so we are going to begin with a 500 gm bag of LSA (Linseed, Sunflower & Almond mix)

Empty this into a stainless steel bowl, if you want to make it a little different you can in a blender crush some cashew, hazelnuts or pinenuts to add to the mix

However you will find with the blend of spices it is very tasty as well as being good for your health;

They will improve your digestion, immune function, antioxidant properties and help to balance sugar levels. Spices are also great way of getting our essential minerals.

•1 teaspoon Cumin
•1 teaspoon Sumac
•1 teaspoon Cardamon
•1 teaspoon Turmeric
•1 teaspoon of coriander
•2 tablespoons of sesames seeds
•1 - 2 teaspoons of chilli flakes
•1 - 2 teaspoons of ground pepper
•1 dessertspoon of onion flakes
•1 dessertspoon of powered garlic or garlic granules

Mix these ingredients altogether with a spatula, then pour into a glass jar with an airtight lid and store in your pantry.

How to serve:

In a small pate or dip bowl add the Dukkah mix, then in another pate or dip bowl add 2 tablespoons of garlic infused oil:

Then fill with flaxseed or refined olive oil, with a dessertspoon of sweet soy sauce, the put bowls onto a serving plate on surround with warm stoneground or sough dough bread

Wholegrain or seeded breads from Baker's Delight or your own Specialty bakery store are also a great choice. You can also include your favourite raw vegies as well.
