+ Well Nourished ⎮ Healthy Dukkah Spice Mix

Healthy Dukkah Spice Mix


This dukkah spice mix is one of those condiments that I always have in the fridge. It is really easy to make and this delicious collection of nuts, seeds and aromatic spices is so versatile and adds an amazing flavour to many simple meals. My favourite ways to eat it are:

  • Sprinkled on poached or scrambled eggs
  • Over steamed vegetables
  • Over a simple green salad
  • With olive oil and a good crusty sourdough
  • With hummus
  • On a baked potato or sweet potato
  • Over avocado with lime (avocado and dukkah on toast is delicious)
  • Delicious with my Moroccan Carrot Salad
  • Make some gut healing Labne and roll it in dukkah for a delicious savoury cheese

Health benefits
As well as tasting amazing, it also adds extra nourishment to your meals. The macadamia nuts are a fabulous source of protein, essential fats and many minerals and antioxidants. The sesame seeds are a rich source of calcium and magnesium. The chia are also a great source of omega-3 essential fats. The spices are wonderful warming antioxidants and also have anti inflammatory properties.

1½ cups macadamia nuts, lightly toasted
½ cup  sesame seeds, lightly toasted
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon turmeric, ground
1 teaspoon cumin, ground
1 teaspoon coriander seed, ground
1 teaspoon black pepper, ground
½ teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1 teaspoon sea salt


  • In a food processor or Thermomix, pulse the macadamia nuts so they are roughly chopped.
  • Mix with the rest of the ingredients and store in an airtight glass jar in the fridge to use whenever you feel like it.
  • You can adjust the spices and seasoning to your own taste.

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose

This page has become my little bible hehe! Thank you so much for all the detail you give. It’s absolutely wonderful!” Sky
