Author: Cheryl


  • 1 cup shelled nuts (any combination of macadamia, hazelnuts, pine nuts, almonds, pistachios)
  • 1/3 cup toasted sesame seeds
  • 1-2 tablespoons coriander seeds
  • 1-2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon good quality sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper


  • TOAST THE NUTS: Heat the oven or toaster oven to 350F. Lay out nuts on a pan in one layer. Roast nuts for about 7-9 minutes until lightly browned and fragrant. Let cool. If you used hazelnuts with skins, remove skins by rubbing nuts together between your two hands.
  • PROCESS NUTS: Place nuts in food processor and pulse until coarsely ground. Don't over-process the nuts or they will turn to paste.
  • FINISH THE DUKKAH: Add sesame seeds and spices. Pulse very briefly 2-3 times just to combine.
  • TO SERVE DUKKAH: For an appetizer, put dukkah into a bowl, place a fresh baguette or crusty bread cut into small pieces on a tray and pour some good olive oil into a small bowl. Guests will take a piece of bread, dip the end into the oil and then dip it into the Dukkah. Note 1.


  1. Other serving options: sprinkle Dukkah on salads, fish, eggs, humus, roasted vegetables.
