This red cabbage pasta is a deliciously filling meal for lunch or dinner.

This recipe came about due to some peanut sauce I had left over. I wanted something that would keep me full for a while because I had a lot to do that day and wouldn’t have time to sit down and eat for quite a few hours, and this pasta dish totally came to the rescue!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb. pasta (whatever your favorite is - I used chickpea pasta)
  • 4 cups shredded kale
  • 4 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 1 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp. tamari
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • peanut sauce (to taste - see recipe link above)
  • vegetable broth (as much as needed for cooking - replaces cooking with oil)

Instructions

  • Set the pasta to cook.
  • While the pasta cooks, place the kale, red cabbage, onions and oil in a large skillet.
  • Sauté until the onions are translucent and the cabbage and kale have
    wilted.
  • Stir in the Tamari and the garlic powder, mix well and set aside. Use vegetable
    broth only if the oil runs out and you need to continue cooking.
  • If you haven't already made your peanut sauce, make it now.
  • When all three components are finished, toss them all together and serve.
  • Sprinkle a few chopped peanuts over the top for a nice, added texture.
