RECIPE :: Walnut Ball Pita Wrap

Recently, we got ambitious in the kitchen. In an effort to have some easy and quick food options around, we baked off a plethora of Walnut Balls, and freezed them. Now, they are ready and at our fingertips whenever we want to whip up a Walnut Ball creation. Today, our #MeatlessMonday lunch menu included these super flavorful pita wraps – fresh flavors with the savory and satisfying addition of the Walnut Burger! Ingredients: (makes 4 wraps) 8 Walnut Balls, quartered (recipe here); (if frozen, heat in a covered skillet or thaw and microwave) Pita Bread (4 pieces) 1/2 red pepper (sliced thinly) Couple handfuls of greens 1/4 cup shredded carrots 1 avocado (diced) Tahini sauce (Trader Joe’s has a great tasting one!)

RECIPE :: Southwestern-Style Stuffed Peppers

RECIPE :: Southwestern-Style Stuffed Peppers

For this week’s Meatless Monday, we threw in a little heat and a lot of our favorite southwestern-inspired flavors. This quick and simple recipe can be served as the main event (we suggest 2 peppers if these are the headliner), or be paired with your favorite cup of soup or salad to complete the menu. Ingredients: (makes 2 stuffed peppers) 2 Bell peppers Olive oil Sea salt & pepper 2 Walnut Burgers 1/4 cup frozen corn 1/4 cup shredded carrots 1/2 Avocado (sliced in half, with the skin on) 1/4 Jalapeño (diced into tiny pieces) First, preheat the oven to 350 and prepare the peppers. Cut the tops off, scrape out the seeds, and place on a baking pan. Drizzle each with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper; place in the oven. Next, brown the Walnut Burger crumbles in a nonstick pan; once the Walnut Burger is almost fully browned, add in the corn until it cooks through and remove from heat. Check on the peppers every 10 minutes, rotating them. Once you begin to see the pepper skins wrinkle a bit (20-30 minutes), remove them from the oven. Stir the carrots into the Walnut Burger / corn mix, and divide the mixture to stuff each of the peppers. Place the stuffed peppers back into the oven and allow them to cook for another 5-10 minutes, helping to meld all the flavors together. Remove the peppers from the oven, garnish with jalapeño and a side slice of avocado before serving....

RECIPE :: Roasted Veg Salad

Often life’s never-ending  busyness is a blur, and when you finally get home to cook dinner, it seems daunting. One of our favorite perks of the Walnut Burger is how easy and versatile it is to cook.  Last night — when getting home after a local beach cleanup, we whipped this recipe up with random ingredients from our kitchen. Healthy, satisfying and simple :: a few of our favorite things! Ingredients: (makes 2 full-size salads) Mixed greens 2-3 Walnut Burgers 6 Baby zucchini  (ends removed, and sliced in half lengthwise) Frozen or fresh corn Garlic salt Paprika Black pepper Shredded carrots 8 Black olives (halved) 1/2 Avocado (diced) Goat cheese Olive oil Balsamic vinegar Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place zucchini and corn on a lightly olive-oiled cookie sheet, dust with a bit of garlic salt, paprika, and black pepper, and place in the oven for 20-30 minutes — until veggies are golden brown. Add a bit of coconut oil to a nonstick saucepan and add Walnut Burgers – cook until the crumbles are browned with a little crispiness on the outside edges. Next, build the salad :: greens, carrots, avocado, olives, goat cheese, roasted corn, zucchini and Walnut Burger crumbles. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic to finish.
