Creamy Autumn Fettucini

I love creating recipes that are flexible and can use many of the veggies in the share this week. My family loved this one. Although  there are several steps, it is actually pretty easy and quick, and super yummy!

Sorry I forgot to take a picture before we devoured it! - Aimee

12 oz. wide ribbon noodles, such as fettucini (rice noodles or wheat)

1 1/2 cups whole milk

4 tbsp. butter

2 tbsp. flour or gluten-free alternative

grated cheese - your choice - Asiago, aged cheddar, etc.

4-8 leaves kale, de-ribbed and sliced into thin ribbons.

1 leek or 1 medium onion

1-2 sweet pepper, thinly sliced

julienned carrot or cubed winter squash

sea salt and ground black pepper

fresh herbs - such as parsley and/or basil

Cook pasta according to directions.

Make cream sauce - in a small, heavy-bottomed pot, melt 2 tbsp. butter. Add 2 tbsp. flour or alternative and stir. Add milk and bring to almost a boil, whisking all the while. Reduce heat to low and continue to whisk until sauce thickens. Crumble a bit of grated cheese into sauce until it melts (about 1/4 - 1/3 cup), to taste. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a large deep-bottomed sauce pan, melt 2 tbsp. butter over medium-low heat. Add thinly sliced leek or onion. Saute until tender, about 5-10 minutes. Add all the rest of the veggies except the kale. Saute for another 5-10 minutes, until veggies are just tender. (Can add a bit of the pasta cooking water to this pan and cover with a lid to steam the veggies and speed up the process.)

Add kale, fresh herbs, and cook for a few minutes, until kale is wilted and bright green. Add cream sauce to pan. Add sea salt and pepper to taste.

Add noodles to pan and stir well to combine and coat noodles. Serve at once.


Spicy Kale and Coconut Fried Rice

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or quality high-heat oil such as avocado oil, divided
  • 2 eggs, whisked together with a dash of salt
  • 2 big cloves garlic, pressed or minced
  • ¾ cup chopped green onions (about 1 bunch)
  • Optional: 1 cup chopped vegetables, like bell pepper, carrot or Brussels sprouts
  • 1 medium bunch kale (preferably Lacinato but curly green is good, too), ribs removed and leaves chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ¾ cup large, unsweetened coconut flakes* (not shredded coconut)
  • 2 cups cooked and chilled brown rice**
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce or sriracha
  • 1 lime, halved
  • Handful fresh cilantro, for garnish
  1. Heat a large (12-inch or wider) wok, cast iron skillet or non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot enough that a drop of water sizzles on contact, add 1 teaspoon oil and swirl the pan to coat the bottom. Pour in the eggs and cook, stirring frequently, until the eggs are scrambled and lightly set. Transfer the eggs to your empty bowl. Wipe out the pan if necessary with a paper towel (be careful, it’s hot!).
  2. Add 1 tablespoon oil to the pan and add the garlic, green onions and optional additional vegetables. Cook until fragrant or until the vegetables are tender, stirring frequently, for 30 seconds or longer. Add the kale and salt. Continue to cook until the kale is wilted and tender, stirring frequently, about 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the contents of the pan to your bowl of eggs.
  3. Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil to the pan. Pour in the coconut flakes and cook, stirring frequently, until the flakes are lightly golden, about 30 seconds. Add the rice to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is hot, about 3 minutes.
  4. Pour the contents of the bowl back into the pan, breaking up the scrambled egg with your spatula or spoon. Once warmed, remove the pan from the heat.
  5. Add the tamari, chili garlic sauce and juice of ½ lime. Stir to combine. Taste, and if it’s not fantastic yet, add another teaspoon of tamari or a pinch of salt, as needed.
  6. Slice the remaining ½ lime into wedges, then divide the fried rice into individual bowls. Garnish with wedges of lime and a sprinkling of torn cilantro leaves, with jars of tamari, chili garlic sauce and/or red pepper flakes on the side, for those who might want more.
