Delightful Egyptian blend known as Dukka, Dukkah or Duqqa, is used as a condiment as often as a cooking spice. Earthy, aromatic, herbal, and satisfyingly nutty, made from toasted hazelnuts and sesame seeds, cumin, coriander, smoked peppercorn, kosher sea salt, and a pinch of black cumin.

Serve with good extra virgin olive oil and your favorite bread. Dip the bread in oil, then into the dukka. A delicious and exotic appetizer or snack.

Brush flatbread with good olive oil and sprinkle generously sprinkle with NUTTY®. Bake at 350 for 5-8 minutes until toasty and golden.

Toss or sprinkle over oiled chicken or fish and roast until tender.

Sprinkle over yogurt, hummus or soft cheese for a tasty dip.

Garnish your favorite creamy soup like butternut squash or pumpkin.

Top rice pilaf or roasted beets, carrots, cauliflower, or your favorite roasted veg for a new take on side dishes.

Sprinkle on buttered popcorn. Movie nights will never be the same.
