This fragrant nut, seed and spice mix is a delicious way to add flavour and texture to a meal.

You can use it as crust for fish or halloumi and then fry; sprinkle over your favourite soup or egg dish; use to coat avocado wedges for a tasty snack or use to garnish any salad or Buddha bowl.

I love this best with pistachio and hazelnuts, but you could also use almonds and cashews if that’s what you have on hand.

  • 2 tbsp cumin seeds (12 g/ 0.4 oz)
  • 1 tbsp coriander seeds (5 g/ 0.2 oz)
