Regardless of what you call them…. “Pee-c-ah-ns”, “Peh-cah-ns”, or “Pee-ceh-ns”… these are YUMMY and super versatile.
Just before Easter, Steve & I picked up dinner to go at Whole Foods. He got a broccoli red onion salad and LOVED it. I decided to recreate it. One of the ingredients was a type of spiced pecan. My recreation of the pecans is below 🙂 and in case you were wondering…. the broccoli salad was a big hit too!!
- 2 c. Pecans
- 2 heaping Tbsp brown sugar
- 1-2 Tbsp honey (a good glug)
- 1 Tbsp Low sodium soy sauce
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp cayenne pepper
- 1-2 Tbsp canola oil
Spray a light colored cookie sheet/jelly roll pan with non-stick cooking spray. Combine all ingredients with your hands; it’s the easiest way to coat them all! Spread on the cookie sheet.
Bake at 300degrees for 15-20 minutes, stirring every 5 min or so. Take out when they seem coated & start to become fragrant. I removed them from the pan immediately and put them on a plate to cool. The coating gets crunchy after cooling
These are GREAT in a Red Onion & Broccoli Salad! Mixed with some granola. In trail mix. In a chicken salad sandwich. YUM! The ideas are ENDLESS!
