Pecan Sesame Seed Topping

This is a special topping I use on salads. Check out my Fairest Salad In The Land recipe.
One of the secret ingredients in this recipe is Nutritional Yeast. It has a cheesy flavor and is really tasty. A spoonful of nutritional yeast is like taking a high-potency B-vitamin complex. A serving will generally stock you up with a couple of days worth of thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, B6, and B12, and a substantial amount of folic acid. You can find it at most health food stores.

  • Preheat oven to 300°F.
  • Place pecans and sesame seeds on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 8 minutes until they are lightly toasted.
  • Place the toasted pecans and sesame seeds into a food processor along with the nutritional yeast, olive oil, and a pinch of salt.
  • Pulse until the mixture is the size of small peas. Do not over-process because you want to sprinkle it on the salad and have it not clump together.
  • Store in a sealed jar in your pantry where it can last up to a month.
