Our three new products making their debut at the market tomorrow – Egyptian Dukkah, Moroccan Tomato Jam & Lebanese Dressing. All Vegan, wheat-free and utterly delicious.
The name ‘dukkah’ means “to crush” or “to pound” in Egyptian. Dukkah is a dry blend of roasted nuts and spices coarsely ground into a healthy condiment. Traditionally savory dukkah is served with bread and olive oil. A piece of bread is dipped in the olive oil and then dipped in the dukkah. However, dukkah has a variety of uses, as it can be used sprinkled on meats, rice, vegetables, eggs, pasta, rice, cheese, tofu or salads as a seasoning or condiment. Historically dukkah was eaten in Egypt by poorer people who couldn’t afford a very flavorful main meal. The dukkah provide a burst of flavour cheaply for an otherwise simple meal. However, because dukkah is dairy-free, egg-free, wheat-free, lactose-free, vegan and vegetarian. Dukkah makes an adaptive appetizer/tapas/mezze snack involving bread and oil, a condiment with a variety of uses, as a “just-goes-with-everything” ingredient suitable for a variety of dietary lifestyles. As dukkah is packed with aromatic flavors, a little goes a long way in terms of adding healthy natural flavors to all foods.
Moroccan Tomato Jam
Moroccan Tomato Jam is a healthy condiment to spice up meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, cheese and breads. The texture of this condiment is exactly like its title: jam. The two predominant flavours other than tomatoes are orange blossom water and cinnamon, both ubiquitous in Moroccan food. Serve the tomato jam with crusty bread as a dip-like side or appetizer or as an accompaniment to sandwiches, eggs, meats, pasta or rice dishes. It’s absolutely gorgeous stirred through paste, served with cream cheese or natural yogurt.
Lebanese dressing is one of our go-to dressings for a variety of savoury dishes. It’s made from tahini, lemon juice and garlic, combined to make the creamiest, most delicious sauce. Our dressing is fantastically versatile, its deep, nutty flavour a harmonious match with roasted vegetables, grilled fish, barbecued meat or salads. It’s almost addictive. Use this lemony, garlicky tahini sauce on everything— try it as a salad dressing, drizzled over vegetables and meats, spread it onto bread or toast, or simply serve as a dip. It’s vegan and wheat-free to boot!!
