Sage & Sunflower Seed Dukkah

Dukkah is a fragrant toasted blend of nuts, seeds and spice that originated in Egypt and is traditionally used as a dip, seasoning or garnish.    Toasting the nuts, seeds and spices brings out all the lovely subtle aromatic flavours; if you prefer, you can skip the toasting step and make a dukkah using raw ingredients.  

 

Sage has some potent medicinal qualities; anti-bacterial, anti-spasmodic, anti-inflammatory and digestive system support; it can be used fresh or dried; fresh sage has a more robust flavour, so adjust the amount to taste.
