I am a morning person. I think there is nothing better than getting up early, making a cup of coffee, and enjoying the cool morning air. It’s my best time of day. It stands to reason, then, that I also love breakfast. This breakfast bowl my idea of a perfect start. It’s packed full of protein and good fats along with one of my favorite summer treats: roasted tomatoes!

However, I think the best part of this recipe is the za’atar pecans. I love using pecans in a savory way because they lend a natural sweet and buttery flavor to the overall recipe- a perfect compliment for the sumac and thyme in the za’atar! Best of all, the pecans add the right amount of crunchy texture to this breakfast bowl. I love keeping a stash of roasted nuts on hand and pecans are packed full of good monounsaturated fat and dietary fiber. A perfect afternoon snack or happy hour addition!

One quick note: watch your pecan storage! All that good oil means pecans are a bit more susceptible to spoiling when stored at room temperature. I keep a stash in my freezer and thaw only what I need. You can store pecans in the refrigerator for up to nine months or up to two years in the freezer (granted, mine are usually gone within a month!) Read more and see the recipe.
