Cannellini hummus with dukkah

Dukkah is a mix of ground spices, nuts and seeds. You can use it as a condiment for many different dishes. In this recipe it makes hummus, an old-time vegan favourite, go high-end. It’s a perfect dish for dinner party nibbles as it is quick and easy to make but looks a bit fancy! The hummus is wonderfully smooth because of the cannellini beans.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 Minutes

Serves: 3


For the dukkah

  • 1 tbsp hazelnuts
  • ½ tsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds

For the hummus

  • 1 can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp light tahini
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Put all of the dukkah ingredients on a baking tray, and toast for 10 minutes until everything is browned. Leave to cool, then remove the skins of the hazelnuts. Then roughly grind the nuts and seeds in a pestle and mortar.
  2. Blend all of the hummus ingredients until smooth using a hand blender or food processor.
  3. Pour the hummus into a bowl, top with the dukkah and a little extra virgin olive oil.
