Dukkah is a simple, healthy starter that you can use when you have friends over. It is great for nibbling at a relaxed BBQ. With plenty of nuts and seeds, it is much more healthy than a bowl of chips! You serve this dukkah with a small bowl of good quality olive oil and cubes of good quality bread (or torn up flat bread). Dip the bread into the oil and then into the dukkah mix, before popping it in your mouth. It is also great sprinkled over salads.
I use roasted, salted nuts in this recipe for convenience, but you can use raw cashews and lightly roast them in your oven before you begin. You will have to add some salt to the mix if you try it this way.
