Pistachio and Rose Dukkah with Winter Fruit

Sandra Slawinski 22nd February 2017 0 comments

I love trying different cuisines and no better time than a grey winter day to discover Egyptian Dukkah.

This nuts and spice blend is so versatile and easy to make, I am ashamed I have not made it before.

My version today is with pistachios and rose petals, because I love pink and well why not add rose petals?

You can use Dukkah to spice up any dish really,…

… like avocado salad, roasted winter vegetables, your morning cereal or add it to chicken couscous or like me sprinkle it onto a winter fruit bake. Add crunch to your hummus or add it to honey roasted beets and yogurt. I am mean truly you can serve this with everything. So make a batch, keep it in a jar in your pantry and you will use it every day, I guarantee.
