Delicious Dukkah

F&W food editors apply their incredible cooking knowledge to explaining what to do with a variety of interesting ingredients.

Every summer, I seem to become obsessed with something new from the Fancy Food Show that takes place in early July. This year it’s dukkah, the fantastically versatile herb, seed and nut blend from Egypt, which seems to go with just about everything. The mix is named for the Egyptian word “to crush,” and like so many blends, the variations are limitless. Most versions seem to include sesame seeds and hazelnuts, along with the herbs and spices, but many also include coconut and chickpeas. Try dukkah in the simplest way, as a second dunk for oil-dipped bread. Then venture beyond and have it as a second dip after yogurt or tzatziki, mixed into other dips as a seasoning, sprinkled on sautéed or roasted vegetables, tossed into salads or as a crust for sautéed chicken or fish. Two brands I especially like are from Gary and Kit’s Napa Valley, and KL Keller Food Ways. Or you can make your own delicious versions: Dukka,
