Care to try my fragrant salty nuts? These delightful savory roasted pecans are a snap to make and will have your guests eating out of your hands- or theirs ;). Salty, sweet, savory crispy nuts are wonderful alone or crumbled atop muffins, such as my Pumpkin Sage Muffins seen here:
I adapted this nut recipe from Vegetarian Thanksgiving Blogspot subbing in sage for rosemary. Sage, as I spoke about in an earlier post, actually enhances perception, boosts memory, and improves mood. In this recipe, the nuts are roasted twice -an easy task that brings out tremendous flavor and crunch. Simply spread pecans on a baking sheet and roast for 5 minutes at 350F.
While roasting, toss the savory ingredients in a large bowl. You can see that I didn’t melt the vegan butter ahead of time as the hot nuts take care of that when mixed in.
After a thorough mixing, pour the savory roasted pecans back on the baking sheet to finish off in the oven for an additional 7 or 8 minutes.
Allow to cool on the pan (I dare you NOT to sample one or two as they cool!) and serve…
