  • 8 oz spaghetti noodles (I used brown rice pasta to make it gluten free but whole wheat pasta would also work) 
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 cups kale, washed and roughly chopped
  • 6 mushrooms, washed and sliced (I used a mix we got from the farmer’s market)
  • 2 cups broccoli florets, washed and chopped
  • 1 tsp crushed red peppers (more or less to taste) 
  • 4 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbs soy sauce (if making gluten free, make sure your soy sauce is also gluten free) 
  • sesame seeds (optional)


  • Cook the pasta by directions indicated on the box. 
  • In a large sauté pan, heat the coconut oil over medium heat until the oil is hot. Add the garlic and cook for a couple of minutes.   
  • Add kale and broccoli; cook for 5 minutes.  
  • Add mushrooms and cook and additional 2 minutes, stirring frequently. 
  • In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, sesame oil, maple syrup and red pepper. 
  • Add cooked pasta to sauté pan and pour sauce over. With low heat on, toss ingredients until everything is well combined for a minute or two.   
  • Serve and garnish with sesame seeds if desired.
