Thank you Aida Mollenkamp for this gorgeous, tasty healthy combination.
Makes 2 to 3 servings
8 oz dried soba noodles or udon noodles
2 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
4 medium shallots, peeled and minced
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
1 very ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
3 tbsp green curry paste
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tsp honey
1 bunch stemmed kale, torn into bite sized pieces, (about 4 cups packed)
1/3 cup raw coconut flakes, toasted
1/2 cup roasted and salted cashews, roughly chopped
1 1/2 tsp raw flax seeds
Bring a medium pot of salted water to the boil over high heat and cook noodles according to the package instructions.
Meanwhile, heat the coconut oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Add the shallots, season with salt and pepper and cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes.
Add the kale and cook until crisp, about 2 minutes.
Drain the noodles when they are done, saving 1 cup of the cooking water.
Combine the avocado, curry paste, lime juice and honey in a small food processor and puree until smooth.
Add salt and pepper to taste and thin out, as needed, with the reserved cooking water.
Toss the noodles with the sauce, turning to coat all the noodles. Add the shallots and kale and turn to coat everything.
Divide among serving plates, top with the cashews, coconut and flax seeds and serve.
