Almond and Chilli Dukkah

This post is part of my 10 Week Christmas Planning Series. Click here to read more posts – Christmas Planning 2013.

I am very keen on Dukkah at the moment. My favourite combo is to have it on smashed avocado, served with sweet potato and eggs.

I have made this recipe with and without the chilli and both are great. Omit the chilli if the person you are making this for isn’t a fan of hot spicy flavours.

Alternatively if you have someone who loves spicy flavours, you could up the chilli a little as it is only a mild flavour. Add a little taste test and then add some more until you are happy.

If you are not a fan of almonds you can check out this hazelnut based Dukkah.

I made this Dukkah as part of a gift for parents in law. I bought some bottles and filled them with lovely olive oil and balsamic vinegar and put them together as a set.
