VeganMoFo: Ciao!



Linguini w. Chickpeas, Kale and Almonds in a Red Wine-Tomato Sauce


Ciao VeganMoFo! I will miss you. The one thing VeganMoFo taught me was that I have the time to blog almost everyday. It is something I will try to continue to do. I was actually a bit upset that I missed last night, but due to a migraine it would have been impossible for me to do so.

Last night's dinner was suppose to be one of those "quick pasta sauces". It turned into one of those "simmered forever pasta sauces". Unfortunately for Reno she was unusually upset last night and it took awhile for her to calm down (which when she was ready to she did in an instant like nothing was wrong in her life ever! babies are a mystery, she's been as happy as hell since.) Anyway...unfortunate for Reno turned out to be fortunate for our tastebuds. Her freak out gave this sauce time to simmer on the stove and develop wonderful flavors. I popped open a bottle of wine and added quite a bit of it to the sauce which was the best thing I could have done to it. Not quite the best thing for my headache. Back to the sauce.....

ingredients where as followed...

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 medium shallots sliced
4 cloves garlic, sliced, then I chopped a wee bit
1 1/2 bunches of kale (not curly)
1 28oz can diced Muir Glen Fire Roasted Tomatoes
2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
leftover chickpeas (probably about 1/2 a cup or so.
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1 cup (at least) favorite red wine (or more!)
salt and pepper to taste

1/2 pound linguini

it as made this way....

~you should know how to cook pasta..so start it.

~heat olive oil in medium saute pan.
~add shallots and garlic, saute until soft
~add kale and cook until slightly wilted
~stir in canned tomatoes and red pepper flakes and cook until kale is limp.
~add chickpeas, almonds, wine, salt and pepper then cook until your baby stops crying or if you don't have a baby cook until sauce reduces and gets nice and thick. Thin out a bit with pasta cooking water if desired.

to serve...

place linguini in bowl topped with delicious sauce then drink the rest of the bottle of wine.

Linguini with Chickpeas, Kale, Almonds & Red Wine-Tomato Sauce = perfect way to end VeganMoFo. Haha, that's great that Reno ended up making that delicious sauce cook properly!! :0D

sounds wonderful, except the upset baby.

That sounds awesome- maybe Reno was crying to get you to cook the sauce longer? Who knows what goes through their little heads? =)

I'm going to miss VeganMoFo, too! Like you, I learned that blogging every day is actually quite easy, and helps me get rid of some of that "oh-my-god-i-have-so-many-ideas-and-photos-piled-up" anxiety!

I really, really hope all the wonderful bloggers that went crazy blogging in November keep it up. I've been printing out and saving recipes left, right and center. Keep it up, please. :D

Poor you, migraine are no fun! But you still managed to make that lovely sauce! I bet it was delicious, good combination of flavours!
