Creamy Kale Pasta For One – Ready in Under 10 Minutes!

This is one of my favorite super quick and easy go-to recipes when I want something healthy, filling and delicious. The creamy base is tahini, which you can also use as a dressing or a spread. I also love to mix it with maple syrup or coconut sugar to make a sweet caramel like sauce that I enjoy with pancakes, oatmeal or on toast.

Instead of kale, you can also use spinach, Swiss chard, collard greens or Brussels sprouts. The almonds add a little extra crunch, which I love in pasta dishes and salads.

Find the full recipe below. I hope you try and enjoy this dish and if you do, let me know:)

  • 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:)
