Berbere Spice Pecan Recipe

Berbere is a traditional Ethiopian spice blend and is a staff favorite. We love this spicy-sweet-spicy (did we mention spicy) blend. It's a must for lentils. We love it on grilled chicken thighs. This is a fun blend that really makes an impact. We served these at a store event and received tons of requests for the recipe. Whip these up for your next get together, and watch them disappear!

Berbere Spiced Pecans Ingredients:

3 cups pecan halves

3 Tbl Pure Avocado Oil

2 Tbl Berbere Spice Blend

Fleur de Sel

Berbere Spice Pecans Ingredients

Berbere Spiced Pecans Directions:

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  In a bowl, combine the pecans, Pure Avocado Oil and Berbere Blend. Stir well to completely coat the pecans in the oil and seasoning. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 8-12 minutes. Watch the pecans carefully. You want them to darken a bit but not burn. They should smell nutty and aromatic. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with Fleur de Sel while they're still hot. Allow to cool completely before serving.

Hi Laurel,
Either Pecan Oil or Olive Oil would be good choices. I hope this helps. They are a tasty snack!

My husband is terribly allergic to avocado. Do you have a suggestion for a different oil?
