Enjoyable cooking: 6 main dishes with organic walnut kernels

Organic walnut kernel spaghetti

For this recipe you need 100g organic walnut kernels, 500g spaghetti, 2 cloves of garlic, 4 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Start by cooking the spaghetti according to the package directions. While the spaghetti is cooking, you can roughly chop the walnuts. Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the chopped garlic. Once the garlic is golden brown, add the chopped walnuts and let them toast for a few minutes. Be careful not to burn them! Once the spaghetti is finished cooking, drain the water and add the pasta to the pan with the walnut-garlic mixture. Mix everything well and let it simmer for another minute or two. Season the dish with salt and pepper and you have conjured up a simple, yet extraordinary main dish. The crunchy walnuts give the spaghetti a special touch and offer a pleasant contrast to the soft dough.

Organic walnut kernel quinoa salad

Preparation begins with cooking quinoa in vegetable broth for added flavor. While the quinoa is simmering, the walnuts can be lightly toasted in a dry pan to enhance their flavor. Then the quinoa is cooled and mixed with the walnuts. A combination of olive oil, lemon juice and honey is recommended for the dressing. This sweet and sour dressing complements the nutty taste of the walnuts and brings out the flavors of the salad. Chopped fresh herbs like parsley or mint add a touch of freshness, while dried cranberries or raisins add a sweet touch. Finally, the salad is topped with crumbled feta cheese. This nutrient-rich and delicious organic walnut kernel quinoa salad is a wonderful addition to any healthy diet.

Organic walnut kernel vegetable pan

The main ingredients for this recipe are organic walnuts, fresh vegetables of your choice and spices. I prefer a colorful mix of peppers, broccoli and carrots, but you can of course vary depending on the season and taste. First, the walnut kernels are roasted in a dry pan until they begin to smell fragrant. Then they are set aside. In the same pan, cook the vegetables with a little olive oil. It's important to keep the vegetables crisp - so they shouldn't be overcooked. As soon as the vegetables are cooked, add the organic walnuts and season as desired. I like to use garlic, salt and pepper, and a touch of chili flakes for some heat. That was it! There are many variations of this dish - for example, you can add tofu or chicken for extra protein or serve it with quinoa or rice for a complete meal. So, what are you waiting for? Get your pan and be surprised by the versatility of organic walnut kernels!

Organic walnut kernel chicken

To prepare this dish you need one chicken breast per person, some olive oil, salt and pepper and of course organic walnuts. The walnuts should be roasted beforehand to intensify their flavor and give them a pleasant crunch. First, cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and fry it in olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and let it cook over medium heat. When the chicken is almost cooked, add the toasted organic walnuts. Mix everything together for another 5 minutes. And your homemade organic walnut kernel chicken is ready. Of course, you can adapt this recipe however you like. Add vegetables or swap the chicken for tofu for a vegetarian option. But no matter how you prepare it, it's always a pleasure.

Organic walnut kernel and basil pesto

The delicious combination of organic walnut kernels and fresh basil is a real treat for the palate. First you need 200g organic walnut kernels. These can be purchased either whole or already chopped, depending on your preference. The walnut kernels should first be roasted in a pan without oil until they start to smell. Then let them cool down. In the meantime you can take care of the basil. You need a large handful of fresh basil, which is roughly chopped. It is placed in a blender along with two cloves of garlic. As soon as the walnuts have cooled, they are also added to the blender. Add 100g of grated Parmesan cheese, as well as salt and pepper to taste. Now all you need is a little olive oil to achieve the desired consistency. With the mixer running, slowly add the oil until the pesto is creamy enough. The finished pesto can be used immediately or stored in the refrigerator for later. It goes perfectly with pasta or as a spread and gives every dish a special touch.

Organic walnut kernel mushroom pan

Start with a selection of organic mushrooms. Be creative and mix different types for more flavor and texture: button mushrooms, shiitake or oyster mushrooms work great. Fry the mushrooms in a little olive oil until golden brown. Then add a chopped onion and continue frying until it is translucent. Now the organic walnut kernels come into play. Roughly chop a handful and add them to the pan. The trick is not to add the nuts too early - they should remain crunchy. Fry everything together for a few minutes. The whole thing is seasoned with salt, pepper and a touch of garlic. You can also add some paprika for extra heat. Fresh thyme or rosemary give the dish an earthy undertone. To complete the dish, drizzle with a squeeze of lemon juice before serving. This step is optional, but it helps freshen the flavors and gives the dish a pleasant acidity. This dish is wonderfully versatile. Serve it as a main course with a fresh salad and crusty bread or as a side dish with grilled meat or fish.
