Food Revolution Soba Noodles with Kale & Walnuts

March 18th, 2012 No Comments Tags: , ,

I reviewed this recipe in the March issue of Oprah and gave it a try while at our hide-away in Kelowna. Nothing’s finer than being at one with Mother Nature, fresh air, a mountain walk, a glass of Joie Reisling shared with your Indy!

Ingredients
2 cups washed, chopped kale
8 oz package soba noodles
1 cup cooking water (from boiled noodles)
handful walnuts
1 Tbsp canola oil
1/4 onion sliced
3 garlic cloves peeled, sliced thinly
salt and cayenne pepper to your liking
grated Parmesan

Instructions
Bring a small and large pot of salted water to boil, covered by lids. Add the prepared kale to the small pot and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain. In the large pot, cook an 8-ounce package of soba noodles following the package directions, reserving 1 cup of cooking water when draining. Don’t forget!! Toss the noodles with the olive oil. In a frying pan, sauté a large handful of walnut in oil until golden. Add garlic and onion and cook to soften. Add kale, walnuts, sautéed garlic, onion and 1/4 cup cooking water to the noodles. Combine with noodles and add more cooking water if desired, then a generous amount of grated Parmesan cheese.

Commentary
I love a main course that you enjoy and feel light as a feather after eating. A welcome change! MMmMmM this vegan meal is ohhh so easy to get used to and keep it in your repertoire. My good friend Cara would be proud of me trying this one. I know that for sure!!
