Walnut Torte -- a dessert that is naturally high Omega-3s -- and one of my favorites!

Walnut Torte is one of my favorite desserts to serve at dinner parties.
(And I'm very lucky if I have any leftovers to have with black coffee the next day!)


7 eggs, separated (Omega-3 eggs, of course!)
1/2 cup finely ground breadcrumbs*
1/4 pound ground walnuts
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup sugar
Beat egg yolks. Add sugar gradually. Stir in bread crumbs and nuts. Beat egg whites until stiff. Fold into egg yolk mixture and add vanilla.
Bake in a 9 x 13 pan for 20-25 minutes at 325 degrees.

1 1/2 pints whipping cream
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
Whip the cream until firm. Add sugar and cocoa. Spread on top of cooled torte and sprinkle with walnuts. Serves 8-10

*Omega-3 Tip
This recipe calls for bread crumbs but I experimented with using half bread crumbs and half flax seed meal with great results. I also made a gluten-free version for a friend with Celiac disease by using a combination of her gluten-free bread crumbs and flax seed meal.

The same cookbook that supplied me with the recipe for the Walnut Torte:The Napa Valley Walnut Cookbook by Michelle Turner has a simple and delicious recipe for a walnut butter that could easily come to replace peanut butter in my affections.
4 cups walnut halves
1 Tablespoon coarse salt
4 tablespoons walnut oil
Put the walnuts salt and oil into a food processor and pulse, stopping frequently, until the nuts are fully pulverized and creamy. I've store my butter in a dark jar and spread it on toast in the morning.
