Butternut squash spaghetti with kale

Spiralizing vegetables into a noodles is a very trendy thing to do especially if you want to cut down on bad carbs or so they they say. This is a very tasty dish full of flavour - we loved it, especially in a company of toasted bread with avocado! 

Who says kale is boring! 


300 gr butternut squash made into noodles, grated works as well
1 chili pepper, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced 
chopped mushrooms, optional 
100 - 200 gr kale
olive oil
salt and pepper 

Prepare the squash, peel it and spiralize it if you have a spiralizer or simply grate the squash.
In a small cooking pot cook the kale for 5 minutes, make sure they don't change their colour.
In a separate pot heat the oil, add chili and garlic, stir well and add the mushrooms.
Sprinkle some salt and put a lid down.
After five minutes add the squash and 100 ml of water, put the lid back and cook it on medium heat until the squash is tender.
Add the kale, sprinkle some more salt and pepper.
Mix it all up - make sure there is no liquid left.

note: if you live in UK - m&s sells already spiralized squash for microwave use only and non freezable. Well, since I don't own a microwave, I cook them on a hob as described above and I did freeze them when I bought them .
