Dukkah Blend exudes a nose that is immediate and rich, with woodsy and herbal aromatics quickly followed by a lingering hazelnut note. Inhale deeply and you’ll feel the Aleppo Pepper and spearmint tickling your nose. On the tongue this blend is full-bodied with the woody spice of cumin, coriander, black pepper, sumac, and nigella seeds exploding with crunchy hazelnut sesame and sea salt notes before resolving in a long, persistent, medium spicy finish. Dukkah is exceptionally versatile! Use it as a crunchy crust for poultry, meat, or fish. It’s a novel, flavorful topping for soft cheeses, like labneh, ricotta, feta, or halloumi. Sprinkle it on Greek yogurt, tofu, or for a special treat top off your avocado toast with this tasty ambrosia. Packed with flavor, Dukkah will elevate your cooked vegetables, creamy vegetable soups, eggs, and salads to fine cuisine.

Dukkah is a traditional Egyptian spice blend that has been used widely across the Middle East since ancient times and is a popular street food even today that is usually taken with olive oil and bread. The word Dukkah itself is derived from the Arabic word “to pound” or “crush” which describes how the blend is made by grinding the ingredients with a mortar and pestle. There are as many recipes for Dukkah as there are cooks in Egypt! However, the core ingredients of cumin, coriander, sesame, and sumac that are combined in most blends have been used in cooking for millennia and have been found in the tombs of the pharaohs!
