Spicy Creamy Kale Pasta

Yield: Serves 2


  • 8 oz. penne pasta
  • 3/4 cup cashews
  • 1/4 onion, chopped
  • 3 large handfuls of kale (about 4-5 cups, loosely packed)
  • 1 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 2 Tbsp. salsa (optional)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil


Cook pasta according to directions.
In a large pan, warm a few tablespoons of olive oil. Toss in chopped onions and kale, and saute until for 7-9 minutes (depending on how soft you like your kale).
In a blender, add cashews, nutritional yeast, 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. Enjoy!
