  • For 20 minutes, soak walnuts in cold water
  • Next, drain water from walnuts.
  • Then, add the walnuts, soy sauce, basil smoked paprika, and garlic powder into a food processor/high-powered blender.
  • Pulse until the walnuts look “meat-like.” Don’t pulse so much that it ends up like butter.


  1. Adjust the soy sauce as you like – depending on how salty (or not) you like your food.
  2. Walnuts, in general, are high in calories and fat, so if that’s something you’re concerned about, just take a peek at its nutritional value and serve accordingly.
  3. I don’t have a food processor, actually, just my Nutribullet. To pulse, I just blend for half a second, 4-5 times.
