Meatless Monday with Kale with Tomato, Garlic, and Thyme Pasta

Welcome to the Miratel blog and to our Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment

Nobody wants to spend more time than necessary in a hot kitchen in the summer but making a fast vegan meal that’s healthy, filling and delicious in a short amount of time might not seem possible. Until today. On the menu tonight is a kale with tomato, garlic, and thyme pasta, which comes by way of the Martha Stewart kitchens at Everyday Food. This great recipe is nutritious, satisfying and quick and easy to make – check, check, check and check. What more can you ask for? Let’s get cooking.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 tablespoons plus two teaspoons extra-virgin olive oilMeatless-Monday-Kale-Tomato-Garlic-Thyme-Pasta
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 pound boiled, chopped kale leaves
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • I lb Long pasta


  1. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium.
  2. Add garlic cloves, thinly sliced, and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds.
  3. Add cherry tomatoes, quartered, and fresh thyme leaves.
  4. Cook until tomatoes begin to break down, 2 minutes.
  5. Add kale and cook until heated through, 2 minutes.
  6. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Drizzle with 2 teaspoons oil.
  8. Toss with boiled pasta.

If you want to make this meal even healthier you can choose a whole wheat, whole grain or gluten-free pasta over traditional pasta. This simple switch will add fibre to your dish and help keep you feeling fuller longer. A long, thick pasta like fettuccini or linguini would work best however you could also use something thinner or even a short pasta if that is what you have on hand. If the pasta is too thin or small the kale with tomato, garlic, and thyme sauce will overwhelm it and that will take away from the dish.

If you don’t use all the sauce on the pasta you serve it as a side dish or serve over crostini. Thus, any leftover sauce can be put to good use. If you want to have leftover sauce don’t toss it all with pasta.
