Easy Dukkah

Dukkah is a Middle Eastern dry condiment composed of spices and nuts.  It can be used to coat chicken or salmon.  It can also be served with pita bread.  Dip the bread in olive oil and then in the dukkah.

I’ve seen some recipes that use pistachios.  You’ll want to avoid those since pistachios are high in FODMAPs.  My supermarket had bags of already toasted and chopped hazelnuts and jars of already toasted sesame seeds which makes this recipe ridiculously quick and easy.

1 6 oz bag chopped hazelnuts
1 teaspoon flaky sea salt
1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds

2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper

3 tablespoons coriander seeds
3 tablespoons cumin seeds

Combine the hazelnuts and salt in a food processor and pulse repeatedly until it reaches the texture of course meal.  Put in a bowl and add the sesame seeds and pepper.  In a skillet, lightly toast the remaining seeds.  When toasted and cooled, pulse 10 times in the food processor and then add it to the bowl of hazelnuts.  Combine thoroughly.
