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! 

Lemon Kale Pasta (Vegan)

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

lemon juice

lemon pepper

sea salt


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!
