Egyptian Dukkah

Egyptian Dukkah

Dukkah is an Egyptian mixture of spices and nuts. Sesame and hazelnuts are most common. Pistachios or almonds are great alternatives. The ingredients are toasted to develop a more intensive flavor. Optionally, add 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.
