Before you start

Oven preheated to 200*C | Baking tray | Food processor | Big pot | Frying pan with lid

Cook the pasta

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil, add the pasta and cook until al dente

Prepare the avocado sauce

  • Halve and destone the avocado and squeeze the flesh into the food processor
  • Add the basil leaves (including the stem), and spinach to the food processor
  • Halve the lemon and squeeze the juice into the food processor, catching any pips in your free hand 
  • Finally, add the nutritional yeast and olive oil and blitz into a smooth, creamy sauce. You may need a splash of water to loosen
  • Taste and season to perfection with salt and pepper

Prepare the crispy kale

  • Pour the kale onto a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and a big pinch of flakey sea salt. Massage the olive and salt into the kale for a minute
  • Transfer to the oven and bake for 8 minutes, shaking the tray half way through cooking

Finish and serve

  • Drain the pasta into a colander, saving a cup full of pasta water
  • Pour in the sauce and pasta water to the pot of pasta and fold until each piece of spaghetti is coated in the sauce
  • Twist the bright green pasta into 2 serving bowls, sprinkle the kale over each bowl, dress with a good drizzle of olive oil, a decent crack of black pepper and a generous grating of plant based parmesan
