Roasted Rosemary Pecans

I have never had herbed nuts and tasted them for the first time in my life at a friend’s parents home over Thanksgiving and I am just hooked. I love the flavor of roasted nuts with fresh herbs. The smell of fresh rosemary tossed with olive oil and fresh pecans in the oven is just incredible! I am hooked. The holiday smell lingers in the house for days after the nuts are roasted. This recipe makes excellent gifts to give away around the holidays. Put in a nice jar with a ribbon on it and bring to friends for gifts. The best part of this recipe is that it is vegetarian, can be vegan, extremely healthy and diabetes friendly. Love it!
