Dukkah (sometimes transliterated to “duqqa”) is a warm, fragrant blend of nuts, seeds and spices that is traditionally used as a condiment in many Middle Eastern cuisines. The name is often traced to an Egyptian word (pronounced “dakka”) that means “to crush.”
To create our Nut-Free Dukkah, we replaced the traditional nuts with crunchy flaxseeds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. The crisp texture of our Dukkah is offset with the flavor of warm spices including cumin and coriander and the heat of Aleppo-style chile flakes and smoked paprika. There is also an interesting balance between sweet turbinado sugar and the acidic tartness of sumac.
There are as many ways to enjoy dukkah, as there are multiple variations of the blend. One of the most popular uses is as a condiment for flatbreads, sometimes sprinkled directly on top of the bread or scooped up after the bread has been dipped in olive oil. Other traditions use dukkah to season vegetables (either raw or cooked) or to season fried foods, especially fish.
Nut-free Dukkah tops the Middle Eastern treat also known as “poor man’s caviar” with crunchy, zesty flavor. Heed the suggestion to use Italian eggplants and there will be fewer seeds and less bitterness.
