Culinary Inspiration

Fall is the perfect time to enjoy recipes with butternut squash, as this produce is readily available in grocery stores and farmers markets around the country. Comforting and delicious, butternut squash offers a nostalgic experience through aromas and flavor.

Crafting fall comfort food is made easier with walnuts, as they add a delightful crunchy texture against the soft consistency of cooked butternut squash.

Beyond providing a delicious texture, they are also the only nut that offers an excellent source of omega-3 ALA, with 2.5g per ounce. Walnuts combine well with butternut squash, which is low in calories but high in many nutrients such as vitamin A and vitamin C. Try these two ingredients together in the recipes below to provide a nutritious meal with lots of fall flavor!
