Smoky Toasted Pecans

These smoky toasted pecans are so easy and yet so good. Using just four pantry items they come together in less than 10 minutes.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup raw pecan halves
  • 2 Tbs soy or tamari sauce
  • 3/4 tsp olive oil
  • 3/4 tsp liquid smoke


  1. In a small bowl mix together the olive oil, soy sauce and liquid smoke.  Set aside.
  2. Set a non-stick or cast iron pan over medium-high heat.  Add in the pecans and toast for 4-5 minutes.  Keep an eye on these and make sure to stir, toss or flip often to ensure both sides get toasted and to avoid burning.  
  3. When they're ready they will start to smell toasty and fragrant and slightly darken in color.  Be careful because there's a fine line between beautifully toasted and burnt.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and pour the smoky liquid over the pecans and stir to thoroughly coat.
  5. Transfer them to a plate to cool before using.


  • Don't walk away while making these to avoid burning them.
