“Fetta” means slice and refers to the grilled zuchinni in this dish, though it can be made with any vegetable that can be grilled. You can buy labneh (strained yogurt) or use very thick Greek yogurt. Just make sure it contains live bacteria as that is what is so nourishing. Dukkah is an Egyptian coarsely ground mixture of nuts, seeds and spices served with bread dunked in oil. You can buy it ready-made, but below is our friend Amal’s recipe.  

Serves 6 as a side or 2 as a main course.
