Pistachio dukkah recipe ingredients

Easy Pistachio Dukkah Recipe

Dukkah is an Egyptian spice blend made from different nuts and seeds. Perhaps you’ve sampled dukkah at someone’s party or a farmer’s market. Maybe you’ve seen it at your local grocery shop sold in pretty jars. We hope that by the time you get to the end of this post, we’ll inspire you to make your dukkah and share it with your friends and family.

Traditionally dukkah is served with olive oil. You’d dip bread into olive oil then into the dukkah. This is just one of many ways that you can enjoy dukkah. In restaurants and cafes, dukkah is served as an appetizer, but it’s also sprinkled on top of foods and vegetables. Smashed avocado with dukkah on top – hmm yum! It would also go well with this tofu scramble for breakfast.
