Step by step recipe:
|Weight 150 g walnut kernels.|
|Put them in the food processor with 150 g icing sugar.|
|Switch on food processor, and as soon as walnuts are reduced to a powder, add egg white...|
|...a spoonful at a time, until paste starts to gather together.
Finish with your hand, gathering all the paste into a ball.
|Shape the ball into a thick disc, wrap in plastic film and keep in the fridge.|
Remarks:Walnut paste is very tasty. It's a delight, but if it seems too strong for you, you can make "Walnut-almond paste" instead by replacing half the weight of walnuts with ground almonds.

What is the purpose of icing sugar in the recipe? Just make it sweeter? Can I omit it or use other substitute? Thanks. A diabetes person.

Yes, make it sweeter and also the texture of the paste. You can try to reduce it, but I'm not sure that omit it will give you a pretty result.
Start your try with no sugar, see what you got, then add some sugar or substitute and see what's happen.
