Dukkah is an incredibly versatile mix of nuts, seeds, and spices that's perfect for flavoring pita bread and cut vegetables that have been dipped in olive oil. Dip the vegetables or bread in the oil, and then the dukkah. You can also use dukkah to season grilled or roasted meat, fish, and vegetables.
