Dukkah Spring SpaghettiPlan ahead to create this spectacular Spring Spaghetti, because it is worth the wait! The creme fraiche takes a day and a half to culture, so patience is required, but whether you make it for yourself, make it for Mother’s Day or just make it for fun, once you do, it will become a decadent staple. Dukkah is an Egyptian spice blend with marjoram and thyme mixed with lightly toasted cumin and coriander. The spices are combined with chopped hazelnuts. The complex flavors and texture infuse the creme fraiche and perfectly complement the spaghetti and spring vegetables. Once you have the creme fraiche, this pasta is fast and easy to make and full of seasonal flavor!

    How do you substitute the flavor of the lemon paste?

  2. Jamie says:

    Hello Anna, you can sub one teaspoon of lemon zest instead and add more salt to taste to the pasta.

    Thanks Jamie. I will do just that.
