HAZELNUT DUKKAH YOGURT DIP
Dukkah gets its name from the Egyptian Arabic word for “to crush” or “to pound,” which is precisely how it’s made. RawSpiceBar’s Hazelnut Dukkah consists of toasted cumin, coriander, sesame seeds, salt and hazelnuts. The ingredients are ground into a coarse powder, releasing aromatics in the process. The most common way to eat dukkah is to dip pita chips or bread into olive oil and then coat with the hazelnut spice mixture. This recipe features a twist on that traditional dip- using greek yogurt and lemon juice. We also love dukkah sprinkled on everything from eggs and pasta to roasted or fresh vegetables, or swirled into hummus or salad dressings.
