Total time10min


  • 1 box Explore Cuisine Organic Edamame Spaghetti
  • 60ml olive oil
  • 5 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
  • 2 large bunches kale (lacinato), rubbed and chopped into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 block of Parmesan cheese, for serving
  • Red pepper flakes, for serving
  • Flaky salt, for serving
  • White or black truffles, shaved for garnish


  1. Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Add edamame spaghetti and cook according to package instructions. (Tip! Cook the spaghetti 1 minute shy of package instructions since the spaghetti will continue cooking when tossed in the sauce). Reserve 1 cup of pasta water to assist in the sauce.
  2. Heat a large saucepan over medium heat and add the olive oil.
  3. Once glistening, add smashed garlic.
  4. Once fragrant, add the kale and allow to wilt.
  5. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Remove from heat. Add in cooked spaghetti, toss until evenly coated in olive oil and garlic sauce.
  7. Add some starchy water if needed, to loosen up sauce and coat the pasta.
  8. Plate the spaghetti, top with Parmesan, red pepper flakes and flaky salt.
  9. If it is truffle season, grate fresh truffle on top to make it SPECTACULAR.
