I’ve always liked my salads to consist of more than just salad leaves. Cheese, fruit, quinoa, ANYTHING to make greens more interesting! I had one of the salads from Grill’d a while back and fell in love with the combination of dukkah in my salad. For my birthday a one of the companies I work with gave me a Thomas Dux hamper (!!!) and in it was the most beautiful dukkah, but since I’ve finished that I haven’t been able to find a good, cheaper version. I’m a bit of an idiot, it took me ages to realise that I could just whizz some up at home in the Thermomix!
The original recipe calls for hazelnuts, but since I had almonds in the pantry I used those instead. I don’t think that the Thermomix is particularly good at dry roasting herbs, so I recommend doing this step on the stove if you have the time. This recipe also yields a fair bit of dukkah, so if you don’t use it too often then I’d recommend halving the ingredient quantities.
150g sesame seeds
30g cumin seeds
50g coriander seeds
1/2tsp black peppercorns
1tsp dried thyme
– Pop the seeds and nuts into your TMX bowl, and dry roast for 8 mins/100degrees/speed 1.
– Add in salt, pepper and thyme, and pulse 3-4 times on turbo. You’re done!
