I suggest you add some swimmers goggles to your protective wear today!
Today I'm slingin some Dukkah at you, And I promise you... it really stings if you catch it in the eye!
1/2 Cup Roasted nuts (pistachio, hazelnuts, or other) 1/3 cup toasted sesame seeds 1 Tbsp dried Thyme 1 Tbsp cumin seeds 2 Tbsp coriander seeds salt & pepper (salt not necessary if using salted pistachios)
Toast the nuts in a hot oven for approx 15 min. stirring frequently to avoid burning.
Toast the spice seeds in the same way for approx 5-10 min
Toast Sesame seeds same way, for approx 5 min
Cool and combine in food processor 3-4 min, or use a mortar & Pestle
You want a dry crumb mixture. *If you over process, oils released from the nuts can make it slightly pasty. That's not what you want! Store in airtight container.
Now just grab some crusty bread and good olive oil, grab a seat in the garden and dip dip Dukkah
(can also be used as a rub on meats, in salads....you name it)
Today I planned to meet a dear friend for Tea after our School Runs. Yesterday I forgot to Bake!
This Morning I needed a 5 minute wonder!
Enter the Magic of Puff Pastry.
I used a frozen Puff Pastry which I had placed in the fridge overnight to thaw. Woke up...Turned on oven got me and the kidlet dressed. Took pastry out of the fridge to soften for 15 minutes. Made Kidlets breakfast... Cored and sliced Apples thinly Added lemon juice, brown sugar and pinch of salt. Let that rest whilst making kidlets school snack. Rolled out the now rested pastry and cut to desired size, stacked on apples and into the oven it went. 20 minutes later....
Kidlet and I were fed, dressed and prepared to hit the road With a delightfully warm and Yummy Apple tart!
