Dukkah: Sesame and Coriander Dip

Dukkah

Sesame and coriander dip

This is a classic Egyptian way to serve bread as a starter course, with other dips and “mezzeh” (appetizers), or alongside kebabs with a nice green salad.  This is also a fun gift idea to make as a hostess gift or for holiday gift giving. Portion dukkah into small mason jars along with a nice bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil! 

Dukkah

Sesame and coriander dip

(makes about 2 cups, or 4 appetizer servings)

8oz. Sesame seeds

4oz. Coriander seeds

2oz. Hazelnuts

2oz. Cumin seeds

Extra Virgin Olive Oil (about ½-1cup)

Warm Arab bread, naan, or pita for serving

 

Preheat oven to 280 degrees F.  Toast the seeds and hazelnuts on moderate heat for about an hour to bring out their fragrance and dry slightly.  Add toasted nuts and seeds to food processor and pulse, careful not to pulverize but just to chop nuts and mingle the flavors.  Add salt and pepper to taste and pulse once to mix.  Pour dukkha into serving bowl and serve alongside a bowl of extra virgin olive oil with warm bread.

Suggested Olive Oil pairing:  A medium robust extra virgin olive oil works well to stand up to, but not overpower the warm aromatic spices in the Dukkah.  Garlic infused olive oil will also pair nicely with this.

This is a great way to use up stale bread.  You can make this in advance and let it soak overnight.  If you’re not into raisins, try cranberries, chopped walnuts, or pecan pieces.  If you don’t have butter infused olive oil, any mild, creamy single varietal extra virgin olive oil will do

When that first crisp morning arrives at the beginning of September, all I want to do is get to the market to pick up some pears and some Brie so I can eat this for dinner. During the holiday season I make this caramelized pear topping in massive quantities and store it in the fridge for last-minute guests. It’s quick and easy, and it even lands on toast or oatmeal (as long as no one is watching). Make sure to use a mild and fruity olive oil.

This recipe is so versatile and easy I promise! It is more of a “formula” than a recipe.  Be creative and have fun!

Add something crunchy like walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, pepitas…(for crunchy satisfying texture)

Add some fresh fruit like apples, grapes, pears, orange supremes…(for that burst of freshness)

Add some dried fruit like cranberries, cherries, raisins… (for a sweet/tart chew)

Add something with a little bite like red onion, pickled onion, green onion…(for a kick)

If you don’t like goat cheese or want to make this a hearty meal replace the croquettes with grilled shrimp or chicken, and add a sprinkle of blue cheese crumbles or feta. 

You can also change the dressing to mix any of your favorite Island Olive Oil and vinegar pairings
