Spiced Pecans


2 Tbsp. orange zest (zest of 1 large orange)

1/4 tsp. sea salt

1 Tbsp. maple syrup

2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil

Pinch of red pepper flakes

1/4 tsp. grated fresh ginger

2 cups pecan halves


Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine zest, salt, maple syrup, olive oil, pepper flakes and ginger in a small bowl and whisk until combined. Put pecans in a re-sealable plastic bag and pour in the coating mixture. Push all the air out of the bag, seal it, and squeeze the pecans around the inside of the bag until they’re well-coated. Pour in a single layer on a sheet pan and bake for about 12 minutes, until you can smell them. Remove from the oven and cool to room temperature. Nuts will become crispy as they cool. Loosen from the sheet pan with a metal spatula and enjoy!
