I am currently going through my Instagram archives in an attempt to keep my recipes more organised and easy to locate. It turns out that there’s even more in the captions than I could recall. In fact, a whopping 87 weeks ago I made a super-fast version of dukkah to accompany a cauliflower, chickpea and kale dish that cropped up in the IQS8WP meal-plan. This recipe is still a go-to for me, but would be very difficult for someone else to find if they had to scroll back so far in my gallery.
Dukkah is not readily available in stores here as it was when I was growing up in Australia. I still remember when it suddenly became all the rage and made an appearance on the table at every entertaining occasion my parents held for a period of a couple of years. They never made it themselves, but rather purchased it from markets or specialty food stores. In any case, 87 weeks ago I had no such luxury. I simply looked in my pantry, took out what I thought might work and decided that I’d use a pan as I didn’t have time to preheat my oven!
This non-traditional yet tasty dukkah was the result.
Use it as you like, try it with my Dukkah Crusted Sweet Potato Fries & Tahini Dipping Sauce with Roasted Garlic… or eat it as my parents did at so many dinner parties in the late 90s, by taking chunks of good bread (sourdough or focaccia are great), dipping it in olive oil and then into a bowl of dukkah.
So easy and SO yummy!
