Hearty Winter Dishes

Pecan toppings put a tasty twist on classics

By FamilyFeatures.com

Seeking comfort from the cold with a wholesome meal is a perfect way to cap off a day with loved ones. When brisk winter temperatures chill you to the bone, warming up with hearty dishes at the family table can bring everyone together.

Both dishes call for pecans, which are among the lowest in carbs and highest in fiber compared to other tree nuts. As a nutrient-dense powerhouse, they have three grams of plant-based protein and three grams of fiber per one-ounce serving with 12 grams of “good” monounsaturated fat and only two grams of saturated fat. Pecans also provide essential nutrients like thiamin, zinc, copper and manganese.
