Egyptian Dukkah

Egyptian Dukkah - Variation

Dukkah is a traditional Egyptian blend of spices and nuts, typically featuring sesame and hazelnuts. Our modern take incorporates fennel and hemp seeds for a unique flavor profile. Optionally, consider including rosemary or oregano.
"Delicious brilliant idea
What can say? What a creative idea for 1, and a delicious meal each time for 2. I recieved 2 Meal spice kits (these include the spices for the entire meal & a recipe card with what to get or add to your shopping list).
1st meal: Dukkah Lamb - This was fantastic. Definitely follow cooking instructions from Spice breeze cards -- I finished slightly faster in oven for a more rare chop- to die for! (...)" Serena Ricker (Trustpilot Review)

My daughter gave me a subscription as a Christmas present while our families were quarantining together. It was so much fun! It introduced us to several cuisines that were totally new to us. The recipes were easy to follow and the spices were transformative - fresh and pungent and delicious.
