Recipe Time: Spicy Vegan Kale Pasta

vegan-kale-pasta1

I love my pasta. It’s one of my most favorite things to cook with, serve and eat! This is a recipe I found and la-la-la-loved. It’s a tasty little dish that is sure to fire up your night 😉 And for those of you meat lovers out there, you can easily add a protein to this dish. I think chicken breast would be best, but what do I know? I’m just a poor little vegematarian 🙂

Enjoy!

Peace, love & sarcasm,

Spicy Vegan Kale Pasta

  • 8 ounces penne pasta
  • 1/4 onion, chopped
  • 3 large handfuls of kale (about 4-5 cups, loosely packed)
  • 2 tablespoons salsa (optional)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. chile powder
  • 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • Olive oil

Directions

Cook pasta according to directions. In a large pan, warm a few tablespoons of olive oil. Toss in chopped onions and kale, and sauté until kale has cooked down completely. In a blender, add spices, salsa, and non-dairy milk. Blend until you have a creamy consistency, adding more milk or water if too thick. Add cooked kale to pasta pot and toss with cream sauce. Sprinkle with a dash of chile powder for some color. Serves two. (One for you and your special someone, or just all for you! Go ahead and eat it all up, I won’t judge.)
