Top Rated Pecan Recipes

This dish is a rice pilaf, where the rice is toasted in oil with onion before liquid is added to finish the cooking. The addition of chopped pecans adds an additional nuttiness to the toasted rice. Pilafs are usually made with a meat-based stock like chicken; if you want a vegetarian version, you can easily substitute vegetable stock or water. We like to serve this alongside our turkey at Thanksgiving.

This recipe was inspired by a spiced pecan recipe and helps to fulfill my desire for pecan rolls or cinnamon rolls or both combined! And I don’t miss the bread part at all. With this you have all the richness and flavor, more for your palate to enjoy. And evidently, pecans are also rich in anti-oxidants. When roasted, they taste like cookies to me!

“Quick science lesson: Albumen is another way to say egg white. Albumins are proteins. You find those in things like eggs — and people. Albumen consists of mostly albumins and water. Read: glue. Waterproof adhesive. Edible. Waterproof. Adhesive. So, if you want sugar and salt and spicy stuff to stick to your pecans, or walnuts, or almonds, toss them in a little edible waterproof adhesive. After a roast and a subsequent air dry, you have one versatile bar snack, salad garnish, or crunchy topping. Use halves or pieces here, depending on intended use. Clearly, this can be tilted more sweet or savory once you get the albumen thing straight.”  — Keith Schroeder, Mad Delicious: The Science of Making Healthy Food Taste AmazingClick here for more of our best pecan recipes.Or, click here to read about the science of cooking in the oven.

Pecan Pie
To me, pecans are the sweetest and softest of nuts. There’s something quite decadent and dessert-y about them; I shudder when I see them in savory applications. This reaction, I think, stems from my love of gooey, nutty pecan pie. If you want to gild the lily, drizzle the top of each pie with melted chocolate for a delicious surprise. These pies can also be made in jars.  Click here to see Pick-Up-and-Go Pies. Click here to see The Great American Pie Extravaganza.
