Creamy Kale Pasta For One

  • Author: Kim-Julie Hansen
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 serving 1x


  • 2.5oz whole wheat pasta, dry weight (or any pasta of choice)
  • 3 cups of chopped kale
  • 1 tsp coconut or olive oil
  • 1tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1/4 cup veggie broth (add a little more if necessary)
  • 2 tbsp sliced almonds
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder


  1. Cook the pasta according to package instructions (this should take about 7-9 minutes, less if you’re using rice pasta).
  2. While the pasta is cooking, sauté the chopped kale in the coconut or olive oil in a non stick pan over medium to high heat.
  3. After 2-3 minutes, reduce heat to low-medium and add the nutritional yeast, tahini, 1/4 cup veggie broth, sliced almonds, garlic powder and onion powder to the pan and mix well. If you don’t have veggie broth, use water and a little salt and pepper.
  4. Cook for 4 more minutes over low heat and serve with the pasta. Voilà:)
