Vegan meat alternatives will keep your healthy diet interesting. Whether you’re living a dedicated vegan life, simply eating a bit healthier, or doing what you can to lessen your carbon footprint, walnuts from Glenda’s Farmhouse can be the primary meat replacement in many tasty meals.
The following simple recipe shows how easy it is to eat clean and meat-free by using walnuts and other fresh, wholesome ingredients. Prepare for Meatless Monday, Taco Tuesday, or an everyday dinner with this method.
Cooking with Walnuts
A growing number of meat eaters want to eat less meat but, instead of lab-grown synthetic meat substitutes made with chemicals and foreign ingredients, they are looking for plant-based proteins that offer health benefits, such as walnuts.
Walnuts transition well between savory and sweet dishes. They complement the flavors of Brussels sprouts and other green vegetables, cabbage, onion, chicken, pork, turkey, cheese, butter, chocolate, cranberries, and vanilla. If adding walnuts to vegetables, fish, or meats, do it during the last 3 minutes of cooking time.
A Meatless Alternative to Ground Beef
Transforming walnuts into the “meat” of your meal is simple. No cooking is required. All you need is walnuts, the proper chopper, and select herbs and spices to create the desired flavor. Walnuts can be seasoned to suit the culinary style of your meal.
As flavorful and tasty as walnut meat is on tacos, pizzas, nachos, wraps, and more, the meat alternative doesn’t work well for long-cooked meals like soups and stews.
How To Create a Meat Alternative from Walnuts
The first step to creating your walnut meat alternative is to order wholesome, quality walnuts from Glenda’s Farmhouse.
The walnuts will need to be soaked in cool water at the beginning of the process. Letting them rest in cool water for 20 minutes will make the walnuts more tender and flavorful.
Once the walnuts have soaked, pulse them with a food processor a few times. Remember to add your desired seasonings! This step is critical. You do not want to create a puree; the “meat” needs texture.
That’s it. This mixture is ready for use in your favorite go-to recipes.
Your walnut meat alternative can be stored in either the fridge or freezer to keep it fresh.
Walnut meat is one of the best vegan meat alternatives! The process is easy, healthy, and affordable. To order your walnut supply, visit Glenda’s Farmhouse today.
