Dukkah Roasted Vegetables Chopped Salad is a simple vegan friendly, Middle Eastern salad recipe. It’s easy to make, delicious, and healthy. Serve it as a vegetarian main course or filling side dish, both work! Paleo option.
Hey friends! Well, this is it. The last recipe of 2017. Dukkah Roasted Vegetables Chopped Salad , otherwise known as my forgotten recipe of 2017. A unpredictably delicious Middle Eastern style roasted vegetables salad that you’ve been missing in your life. That is, until now.
You see, I was tempted to skip posting during this awkward “in between” holidays week, but as I was filing all my recipe photos from 2017, I came across this old gem. GASP! The one recipe I totally forgot to share last Spring. How could I forget this recipe?! I EAT so often I thought surely I had shared it already. In fact, I remember making this roasted vegetable salad dish to photograph, and then being so hungry that I only took 3 pictures and then decided to scarf it down. 3 photographs for one recipe? That’s insane. Normally it’s around 300! Haha, maybe, kinda, okay it’s true. I’m a photo junkie.
Anyways, after I devoured this recipe I probably put it in the back of my mind to reshoot (again) another day. … but then totally forget. Figures, that was my brain in 2017. Forgetful. I always said I would finish things later and then LIFE took over and I would forget. Remind in 2018 to be organized on top of things. Mmm k? Yes, 2018 ORGANIZED!
So here I am today, 6 days away from 2018, finally sharing my missing recipe stash. An “oldie” but goodie, per se. This easy warm salad recipe is one of my personal favorites because it’s made up of all my favorite vegetables. All my favorite vegetables, which means it’s made up of my husband’s least favorite vegetables. In fact, I would take it one step further. He hates these vegetables: mushrooms, tomatoes, and certain leafy greens… Such BLASPHEMY! Although this type of blasphemy results in me being able to enjoy multiple servings of this goddess of a chopped salad all by myself. I won’t condemn my husband (much) for that. 😉
Dukkah spice. What is Dukkah spice to be exact? Oh glad you asked! Dukkah has become one of my favorites spice mixes this year. It’s an Egyptian nut and spice mix made up of dried herbs, nuts, seeds, and spices; cumin, coriander, fennel, toasted nuts, sesame seed, to name a few. Although each Dukkah seasoning can vary in nuts and seeds depending on the region/recipe you use it on. I like to put on and in EVERYTHING; chicken, vegetables, or homemade dip. You can easily make your own dukkah or buy the pre-made mix. Either way, I am secretly praying this type of flavor panel becomes more “trendy” in 2018. I have my thoughts on all the 2018 trends coming up soon, so stay tuned for that. But for now, let’s focus on how good this dish is going to taste after consuming Christmas desserts and fruit bakes for a solid month! Haha.
Here’s whatcha need to make the Dukkah roasted vegetables salad recipe:
- Finely Chopped Cauliflower
- Sliced Mushroom
- Chopped onion or shallots
- Cherry tomatoes
- Dukkah Spice mix (or homemade blend)
- Chopped Spinach and Sprouts
- A hint of chopped mint and other herbs
- Creamy warm onion dressing or Creamy paleo dressing of choice
Oh and LARGE sheet pan to shove it all on!
See, simple. And this is one of those recipes that you can serve by itself, with roast chicken, roasted chickpeas, over a wild rice blend, whatever. Honestly, I love it by itself in a large bowl with quinoa. Just sayin…Print
Well friends, I hope you are enjoying a slow week as we transition into the upcoming 2018. Enjoy it. Savor it. No thinking about real life until next week.
Cheers to secret recipes, extra veggies, and sloooooow New Years transitions.
