Egyptian Dukkah

SpiceBreeze
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)
