Equipment

  • Large Pot to cook pasta
  • Large Pan to cook sauce
  • Spatula
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Strainer or tongs

Ingredients

  • 5 cups broccoli chopped
  • 4 cups kale chopped
  • 4 servings pasta of choice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp garlic minced
  • 1 can chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Instructions

  • In a large pot, bring plenty of water to a boil and cook chopped broccoli until tender.
  • Take the broccoli pieces out of the water using a small strainer or tongs, and cook pasta (al dente) in the same water, according to package instructions.
  • While pasta is cooking, heat up a large pan or wok on medium high heat and add the olive oil. Add minced garlic and sauté for a couple of minutes. Be careful not to burn the garlic; if the pan gets too hot, remove from heat for a few seconds to prevent the garlic from burning.
  • Add in the cooked broccoli, kale and chickpeas into the pan and mix well.
  • Once pasta is cooked, save some of the pasta water and strain. Add the pasta into the wok with a splash of pasta water and mix well.
  • Add salt, garlic powder and chili flakes (optional) and cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently and adding more pasta water as needed. Give it a taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
  • When serving, top with vegan parmesan cheese or nutritional yeast.
