I found this at www.walnuts.org whilst searching for new and interesting uses for walnuts. I can't wait to give it a try!! They also suggest that this mixture makes a great taco salad.

    Great lunch! We love all of the ingredients and love how it came together. Used white corn taco shells, and 6 shells accounted for about half of the mixture, so we look forward to having more tomorrow. DH asked "Where's the meat?" to which I replied, "Walnut meat!" I used finely chopped walnuts, which seemed a good choice for this recipe. This was more satisfying to me than ground beef tacos, plus I love the high fiber and veggies. Made for Veggie Swap 36 July 2011.
