Hazelnut and Almond Dukkah
 
Ingredients
1/2 cup organic hazelnut kernels
1/4 cup blanched almonds
1/2 cup organic sesame seeds
2 tbsp organic ground coriander
2 tbsp organic ground cumin
2 tsp organic ground black pepper
1/2 tsp himalayan rock salt (fine)
extra virgin olive oil, to serve
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Roast the hazelnuts on a baking tray, until toasted (approx 5 mins). Rub the hazelnuts in a clean towel to remove the skins and allow to cool.
  2. Roast almonds for about 5 minutes until lightly browned and allow to cool.
  3. Lightly toast the sesame seeds until golden brown. Then go ahead and add to cooled hazelnut and almonds.
  4. Lightly toast coriander and cumin until browned. Once all ingredients have cooled, place them all into a food processor or coffee grinder and grind until coarse. You can also use a mortar and pestle!
  5. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.
  6. The dukkah should be dry, not oily!
  7. To serve as a dukkah, dip fresh bread in extra virgin olive oil then dip in dukkah. It can also be used as a seasoning on baked fish or meats, or as a salad topping for extra flavor.

Enjoy!
