Toasting nuts briefly in the oven makes them crispy but tossing them with falafel mix first makes them even crunchier. You can substitute walnuts in place of the pecans here.

  1. 2 cups pecan halves
  2. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  3. 1/4 cup falafel mix
  4. 1 tablespoon sugar
  5. 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. In a medium bowl, toss the pecans with the melted butter until evenly coated. In a small bowl, combine the falafel mix with the sugar and cayenne. Pour the spice mix over the pecans and toss to coat. Spread the spiced nuts on a lightly greased baking sheet and toast for about 9 minutes, stirring once or twice, until golden. Let cool.
Make Ahead The pecans can be stored at room temperature for up to 1 week. Notes Add the cayenne pepper to the spice mixture a tiny pinch at a time. Dip a buttered pecan in the mixture after each pinch and taste, then proceed with the recipe when you've reached your preferred level of heat.
