Lemon Kale Pasta
This dish is probably what I crave most nights. A large serving of pasta with plenty of greens, beans for protein, with olives and lemon for brightness. I always have these ingredients on hand, which makes it a really simple go-to meal!
Makes about 4 large servings
1/2 bag of whole wheat pasta
3 cups chopped kale
2 spoonfuls of kalamata olives, halved
1 can of white beans, rinsed and drained
olive oil and/ or avocado oil
1) Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Then add the pasta. Cook until al dente, roughly 9 minutes.
2) Saute the chopped kale in a saute pan with a glug of olive (or avocado) oil. Toss with salt and lemon pepper. Cook for several minutes until kale gets a bit charred and crispy.
3) Add the can of beans to a large bowl along with the olives. Add the crispy kale and rinsed cooked pasta.
4) Toss with lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt and tons of lemon pepper. Enjoy!
