- 3-4 c kale, chopped
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- pinch sea salt
- pinch freshly ground black pepper
- 1 c cashews, soaked 2 hours/overnight
- 1/2 c unsweetened plant-based milk we used cashew milk
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 c olive oil
- 1/2 lemon juice of 1/2 lemon optional
- 8 oz pasta noodled, cooked we used penne
- 1/4 c vegan parmesan cheese optional
Soak the cashews in a bowl with water for at least 2 hours or overnight. Drain and rinse.
In a medium skillet heat the olive oil over low heat and add the garlic, kale and sea salt. Sauté for 5-10 minutes or until fragrant and soft.
Add the plant-based milk, cashews, garlic, sea salt, olive oil and lemon juice to a blender and pulse until smooth and creamy.
Cook the pasta for 8 minutes and drain, reserving approximately 2 cups of water.
Add the pasta to the skillet with the kale and slowly fold in the sauce, adding additional reserved water to taste so that it maintains a saucy texture.
