    WiGal's Note:

    Dukkah (pronounced 'do -kah') is an Egyptian blend of coarsely ground nuts and spices. Use it in Chargrilled Vegetable and Pita Salad With Feta and Dukkah or by dipping bread in extra virgin olive oil then into the dukkah. Or use dukkah as a crust or breading for foods like lamb, shrimp, fish or chicken. Sprinkle over salads, pasta dishes, or scrambled eggs. Think it might be good on roasted carrot soup. This recipe came from The Culinary Chase Blog. The timing does not include the cool downs after each roasting nor the shelling of the nuts.

      This was a lovely dukkah blend. I subbed cashews for the macadamia's, cut my nuts coarsely by hand and ground my seeds in a mortar and pestle. I usually store my dukkah in the freezer as I believe it keeps fresher that way and can be pulled out at the last minute if you have unexpected guests and are making a dip platter.
