Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ an onion thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic grated or minced
  • 1 ½ cups finely chopped kale leaves
  • ½ cup grape tomatoes halved
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 medium zucchini spiralized or julienned with a vegetable peeler
  • ¼ cup goat cheese plus extra for sprinkling
  • 2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion to skillet and saute for 2-3 minutes or until it starts softening and becoming translucent. Add garlic and stir, cooking for another minute or so.
  • Add kale, tomatoes and salt. Cook until the kale has wilted down and the tomatoes shrivel a bit.
  • Add spiralized zucchini to the pan and cook until the zucchini begins to release some of its liquid and soften.
  • Remove the skillet from the burner and add the goat cheese, tossing to coat all of the zucchini noodles. It should melt down and create a light "sauce."
  • Sprinkle pine nuts over top and sprinkle with extra goat cheese if desired. Serve immediately.*
