Duqqa Navy Bean Dip (vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, nut-free)

By Aine Davis

I wanted to make a dish that incorporates duqqa for a family dinner, but the Egyptian spice blend typically contains nuts and my cousin is allergic to them. Being the stubborn and determined person that I am, I came up with this delicious duqqa navy bean dip recipe that’s nut-free! Problem solved.

DUQQA:

Ingredients…

  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup coriander seeds
  • 1/4 cup cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp pink Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cayenne
  • Pinch of black pepper

Directions…

  1. Preheat oven to 325 F.
  2. On a lined baking sheet, toast sesame seeds for 10-12 minutes until golden in colour. Flip halfway and ensure not to overcook.
  3. Combine toasted sesame seeds, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, salt, cayenne and pepper in a food processor until fine in consistency.

Note: You’ll only need a little bit of duqqa for the dip! Store in an airtight container and add sparingly to your favourite savoury dishes.
