Dukka (from the Arabic for “to pound”) refers to crushed nuts and seeds traditionally eaten on bread dipped in olive oil; the blend varies from cook to cook. Eric Monkaba especially likes this garlic-free version.

  1. 1/2 cup hazelnuts
  2. 6 tablespoons coriander seeds
  3. 3 tablespoons whole cumin seeds
  4. 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  5. 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  6. 1/2 cup salted roasted pistachios
  7. 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  8. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Spread the hazelnuts in a pie plate and toast for 12 minutes, until fragrant and the skins blister. Transfer the hazelnuts to a kitchen towel and let cool. Rub the nuts together to remove the skins and transfer to a food processor.
  2. In a medium skillet, toast the coriander and cumin seeds over moderate heat, shaking the pan, until golden and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Spread the spices out on a plate and let cool completely, then finely grind in a spice grinder. In the same skillet, toast the sesame seeds over moderate heat until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the sesame seeds to the plate to cool. Add the coriander, cumin, sesame seeds and thyme to the food processor along with the pistachios, cayenne and 1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper and pulse until finely ground. Transfer the dukka to a bowl.
Make Ahead

The dukka can be kept in an airtight container for up to 4 days or refrigerated for up to 1 month.

Serve With Olive oil and crusty bread.
