Plant-based diets are becoming more common as people understand the impact of a meat-based diet on their health, their planet, and their pocketbooks. Vegan walnut meat is an innovative solution for dishes that former meat eaters typically crave. In fact, the “meat” works so well that omnivores may choose to embrace the concept of Meatless Monday. Glenda’s Farmhouse walnuts are an affordable and convenient way to stock them in your pantry regularly.

Making walnut “meat” is ridiculously easy and surprisingly tasty. The texture and flavor versatility make this creation the perfect solution to a variety of cuisines. In fact, Glenda’s Farmhouse offers pre-crumbled walnuts flavored to create savory, Asian, and Mexican cuisine.



    1. Put walnuts and beans in a food processor.
    2. Pulse to a coarse texture.
    3. Add 2 tbsp of oil and the rest of the ingredients to the processor.
    4. Pulse to a fine chop that looks like ground meat, making sure the mix is even.
    5. Heat 1 tbsp of oil on medium heat.
    6. Add mix from processor to the skillet.
    7. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.

    Processing walnuts in this fashion and combining them with seasonings and herbs can customize your walnut “meat” to suit a wide range of culinary styles.

    From tacos to meatballs, meatloaf, burritos, and other dishes typically made with ground meat, this walnut “meat” can transform to meat the dish. The creation has a texture similar to ground beef and absorbs flavors readily.


    Enjoy your meals as you strive to consume less meat, whether the choice is out of concerns for your health, the environment, or your conscience. Vegan walnut meat allows you to enjoy all of your favorites without the guilt. Glenda’s Farmhouse provides a convenient and cost-effective way to keep your pantry stocked with regular walnuts as well as crumbled, flavored walnuts.
