Dukkah (Nut and Spice Mixture)

Makes about 1 cup

Dukkah is an Egyptian condiment that adds flavor and crunch to hummus, salads, and creamy soups. We love it sprinkled atop avocado toast, popcorn, and roasted potatoes.


  • 3 tablespoons whole brown flax seeds
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 2 teaspoons coriander seeds
  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts, roasted and finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. In a small skillet, combine flax, sesame, coriander, cumin, black peppercorns, and fennel seeds. Place over medium-low heat and toast, stirring often, for a minute or two, until fragrant and seeds begin to pop. Remove from heat and cool.
  2. Coarsely grind toasted mixture in spice grinder or with mortar and pestle.
  3. Stir in hazelnuts and salt. Place in an airtight jar. Use within one month or refrigerate for longer storage.
