Hummus With Dukka
from luvcook'n

Dukka is an Egyptian spice mix made from a blend of nuts and seeds. It can be scattered over salads, or served as a nibble with a small dish of extra virgin olive oil and hot bread. This is from The Natural Menopause Cookbook.


  • 1 3/4 cups canned chick-peas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons hot water
  • whole wheat pita bread, toasted, to serve


  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon cumin seed
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 cup hazelnut, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Place the chickpeas, tahini, oil, garlic, lemon juice, and measured water in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Alternatively, mash the ingredients together with a fork.

Toast the sesame and cumin seeds and coriander in a dry skillet over a low heat for 3 minutes, moving them around until they start to smell fragrant. Tip them out onto a plate.

Add the hazelnuts to the skillet and saute for 1-2 minutes, or until lightly golden.

Stir the nuts and salt into the seed mixture. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

Spread the pate on whole-wheat pita and sprinkle with a little of the dukka.
