Pasta a la Kale di Garlico

Give us all the carbs and make it wicked simple!! Plant-powered dishes don’t have to be big, extravagant meals. In fact, our favorite meals are incredibly flavorful plates prepared from humble ingredients. Power up to the plants!

Massaging kale is a great way to soften up the texture, and so is sauteing it. We’re getting that kale all flavored up with lots of garlic and some herbage before calling in the squiggly noodles.

Spiral pasta is a fun shape that does a great job of catching all the flavors in every curl. Garlic, greens, lemon, and herbs all spiraling straight down your piehole to carb-load yo’ belly. Serve this with some fresh, crusty sourdough. Extra credit points if you turn it into sourdough garlic bread. Boom.
