Spaghetti with Smoked Tofu and Kale


1 pkt wholemeal San Remo spaghetti

½ bunch kale, finely shredded

1 tbls olive oil

2 cloves garlic,

1 small pkt (1 cup) smoked tofu, cubed (plain if you can’t find smoked)

1 cup fresh tomatoes

3 tbls (vegan) pesto

1 tsp chilli flakes (optional)

1 lemon, juiced and zested


Cook your pasta according to manufacturer’s instructions. Place the kale on the bottom of your sieve then pour the pasta with the water on top. This will wilt the kale. Run some water through and let drain.

In a flat pan, heat your oil then add the garlic. Add the tofu and stir to coat it. Now add the tofu and stir again to coat. Then add the tomatoes and pesto.

Lastly, add the pasta and kale to the pan and gently toss. Finish off with the chilli (if using) lemon juice and zest.
