Roast Brussels Sprouts and Carrots with Dukkah

I am really into roasting vegetables this time of year, and I have found boiling them until nearly cooked and then roasting them speeds up the process. Recently I found Dukkah in Lidl (I think they have some fun international spice blends) and used in this dish. Dukkah is an Egyptian and Middle Eastern condiment consisting of a mixture of herbs, nuts, and spices.
