It's just a very earthy mixture reminiscent of a time when people didn't buy everything at the store. I like that it's not ground too much; it has a roughness that allows individual flavors to pop up. Yet it's all smoothed by olive oil.
Imparts a wonderful variety of nice Mediterranean-spice hits, plus plenty of nuts. I love it most the traditional way--bread dipped in olive oil, then in dukkah. (Just like at 3 Foods, back when. (In Arcata))
The roasted beets were incredible! But I also discovered that sprinkling it on my elaborate salads makes them even more tasty! What a find! I would buy a lot of this wonderful concoction. It has so many different flavors that blend into a delicious mix perfect with all sorts of vegetables. Good thing I already bought 3 bags! I had a feeling this would be a keeper.
I am so happy to have more of this - it's so delicious on roasted carrots!
