  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme, stemmed
  • 1/2 pound oyster mushrooms, torn into bite-size pieces
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 bunch Tuscan kale, stemmed, cut into 1-inch thick strips (about 8 cups)
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon white soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon white balsamic vinegar

INSTRUCTIONS

1.

Cook ZENB Pasta 2 minutes less than directed on package. Drain.

2.

Meanwhile, heat oil in large pot on medium-high heat. Add shallots, garlic and thyme; cook 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly until translucent. Add mushrooms, salt & pepper; cook 4-6 minutes or until most liquid is evaporated.

3.

Reduce heat to medium; add kale and stock. Bring mixture to a boil, scraping up browned bits from bottom of pan. Reduce heat to low; cover. Simmer 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until kale is wilted and tender. Stir in pasta and soy sauce; cook 1-2 minutes until pasta is tender. Remove pot from heat; add remaining ingredients. Mix gently until cheese is melted and well combined.

Tasty Tips

Oyster mushrooms grow in a bundle attached to a tough central stem. Cut the thin, tender caps off of the central stem before cooking. Reserve the stem to make a great stock.

White soy sauce is lighter in color and flavor than regular soy sauce. It’s a great way to add a big hit of umami without changing the flavor profile of your dish. White soy sauce is available at well stocked grocery stores or online.
