kate5kiwis: the twenty second day of Christmas


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

the twenty second day of Christmas

for the last few summers, i've made ten-minute-dukkah, which i stash in the pantry for when extras arrive and we need. food. pronto.
the recipe goes like this:
gently toast in oven or frypan, stirring for five mins:
1/2 c hazelnuts
1 c almonds
add and stir for another five mins:
3/4 c sesame seeds
2 Tbsp cumin seeds
2 Tbsp coriander seeds
(grab the first few ingredients from the bulk bins at the supermarket and the last two from a wee gourmet shop)


tsp sea salt flakes
few grinds of black pepper

throw into blender and pulse until chunky breadcrumb consistency. don't over-whizz or it turns into glue. ha.

now for the best part:
dip hunks of fresh white crusty baguette into a good quality fragrant olive oil (or avocado oil infused with lime) and then into the dukkah mix. grab an ice cold bacardi & pineapple and sneak out into the secret garden.
