Peanut Noodles with Kale is Simple and Spicy

This spicy peanut noodles with kale dish is fairly simple and a great way to get more kale in your diet! Serves 2 for a main dish or 4 for a side dish.


1 large or 2 small bunches kale, washed and de-stemmed
1/2 lb. pasta (thin rice noodles or regular spaghetti)
2 Tbsp. all-natural peanut butter
3 Tbsp. chili-garlic sauce
2 Tbsp. tamari or soy sauce
2 Tbsp. sugar
a splash of water


In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter, chili sauce, tamari and sugar. Add a little water to thin out the sauce a bit. Set aside.

Rinse the kale and cook it wet in a large frying pan (no oil needed). Cook on medium heat until tender. Meanwhile, cook the noodles according to package directions and drain, then add them to the pan with the cooked kale. Pour the sauce in and toss well. Serve hot or at room temperature.
