Fall Recipes that Use Walnuts

Walnuts are a great option for all your fall recipes: they’re incredibly healthy and good for you, they provide a charming, seasonal taste that is perfect for a meal packed with autumnal flavors, and they go in almost everything, from light salads to sticky desserts. Here are some of our favorite autumn recipes that are packed with walnuts.

Monkey Bread

Monkey bread is one of the best dessert options for fall. With its sugary, cinnamony flavor and its breakaway pieces that are great for sharing, it’s an incredible dish to bring to a party or just to make at home for you and your family. You can find a recipe for monkey bread, which includes half a cup of chopped walnuts, here.

Grilled Corn with Walnut Pesto

An impeccable side dish that screams fall flavor, grilled corn is a great option for those early fall days where it’s still light out late into the evening and you can grill outside to your heart’s content. This recipe, however, kicks this old standard up a notch by adding an amazing pesto sauce that is packed flavor. Giving you an ample serving of calcium, iron, and protein, this side dish might even need to be upgraded to main course.

Autumn Chicken, Walnut and Apple Romaine Salad

This recipe uses 6 tablespoons of chopped walnuts, 4 cups of McIntosh apples, and half a cup of dried cranberries, which means it packs a punch of autumnal flavor. Chicken can be seasoned to taste, and pasta can be cooked according to the directions on the packet. Essentially, this is the easiest, most filling salad you’ve ever made, and it combines all the flavors you look for in a fall-inspired dish.

Pomegranate and Walnut Stew

Looking for something a bit different and exciting you can make this holiday season? If you are vegan but want to create a hearty and delicious stew, look no further. This combination of pomegranates, walnuts, onions, and turmeric is bursting with flavor and can be made into a completely filling and satisfying meal. Find the recipe here.
