    Nut and Seed Dukkah

    Dukkah, meaning “to pound” in Arabic, is a delicious nut and seed blend originating from the Middle East. Blends vary according to region and are typically enjoyed with bread dipped in olive oil. Our savoury dukkah recipe is a delicious blend of heart-healthy walnuts and almonds, served with our spicy hot gazpacho.

    Dukkah can be made using a variety of nuts and spices—no need to limit your imagination! It’s delicious sprinkled over hummus, yogurt, and roasted vegetables.

    Heart-healthy walnuts

    Walnuts are especially high in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. One serving is approximately a small handful of nuts or 2 Tbsp (30 mL) of nut butter.
