Creamy Peanut Butter & Kale Pasta

i’d like to give a shout out to Kristyn for this recipe.  i put a call out for suggestions for some ingredients i got from my CSA and this is what i got.  peanut butter?  with kale?  my initial thought was, “hmmm… interesting,” and as was the reaction of a few other people when they asked me what was for dinner.  my mind was set.  peanut butter and kale it was.  i followed Kristyn’s recipe almost to a T, making a short cut on the kale.

you’ll need:

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/3 onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth or water, warmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 bunch kale, chopped
  • half pound of pasta – medium shells

Cook the pasta according to the box directions.  while the pasta cooks,  saute the onions and garlic in vegetable oil.  once translucent, add the kale and cover, cooking until tender and green.  combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, warm vegetable broth, and spices. add the sauce and pasta once the kale is cooked.

it was simple, it was fast and it was ridiculously yummy.  i suggest making this if you want to try kale or have some and don’t know what to do with it.  thanks, Kristyn!!!
