Serves: 4

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 15-20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 package brown rice spaghetti
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups roughly chopped kale (from about 1/2 bunch)
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 15-ounce can coconut milk

Directions:

1. In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook until al dente, or according to the package instructions. When done, reserve about 1 cup of the water, drain the noodles and set aside. 

2. In a large saute pan over medium heat, heat oil. Add red bell pepper and kale, cooking until the kale wilts, about 5 minutes. Stir in curry powder, salt and pepper.

3. Stir in coconut milk and let simmer about 10-15 minutes. If desired, thin out the curry sauce slightly with reserved pasta water. Stir in spaghetti and serve.
