If this were a “how-to-gain-weight” book, I’d recommend making bowls of Maple-Glazed Pecans, especially during the holidays, so that you and your guests could fill up on hundreds of calories before you sat down to dinner. But this isn’t that book. Instead, enjoy these nuts in place of croutons on a salad, so that you can have terrific flavor and a waistline, too.
- ½ cup chopped pecans
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- Pinch of cayenne
- ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
Preheat a toaster oven to 375 degrees, and line a small baking sheet with aluminum foil.
In a small bowl, stir together the nuts, syrup, cayenne, thyme, and salt. Spread the nut mixture on the prepared sheet. Cook until the nuts are fragrant, about 12 minutes.
Remove the nuts from the oven, let cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, and separate the nuts using two forks. Let cool fully before using, another 10 minutes.
