Walnut Chili

Ingredients for faux ground meat

1 cup walnuts
1/3 cup sundried tomatoes, soaked in oil
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 tablespoon chilli powder

Soak your sundried tomatoes for at least one hour. Drain and pat dry before using. (If your sun-dried tomatoes are packed in oil you don’t need to do this.)
Simply add all ingredients to the food processor and blend until it becomes the consistency of ground beef.
