Thyme Roasted Pecans

Thyme Roasted Pecans

I love topping bowls and entrees with chopped nuts to add some crunch and more nutrients to the dish. The inspiration for this recipe came from rosemary roasted walnuts that I use to top one of my daughter’s favorite dinners. These walnuts are so tasty I often make extra for my family to eat as a snack.

Thyme-roasted pecans are great on their own or are a tasty topping for stuffing, my Thanksgiving bowl, soups, or salads. Pecan’s buttery flavor pairs well when roasted with herbaceous thyme, and is finished with a sprinkle of salt. This is an easy recipe to whip up and throw in the oven to be served at your next holiday gathering.

Try this recipe with your favorite nut-herb combo. I love to use this same recipe but sub rosemary for the thyme and walnuts for the pecans. Let me know your favorite combinations!
