Ingredients

Pasta

  • 9.5 oz box of green lentil penne pasta that is what I used, you can use any pasta that you like
  • 4 cups water

Cauliflower Alfredo

  • 5 cups minced cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp horseradish mustard
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups almond or soy milk
  • 3/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 6 cloves of garlic about garlic. I use packaged, pre-peeled garlic and it is less potent. If you use fresh from the bulb garlic, you may want to adjust and use less garlic.
  • Juice of 1 lemon

Kale

  • 7 cups of fresh baby kale

Instructions

  • These are Instant Pot Directions:

Pasta

  • Place pasta and water in Instant Pot. Cook on high pressure for 3 minutes. Quick release when cooked. Note: Pasta and water create a lot of pressure. I lightly place a towel on the pressure valve when it is releasing to avoid having my kitchen sprayed with pasta water.)
  • Drain pasta and run cold water on it to prevent sticking. Set aside.

Cauliflower Alfredo

  • Add all ingredients and cook on high pressure for 3 minutes. Quick release pressure.
  • Using hand blender or high speed blender, blend alfredo sauce until it is smooth. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.

Kale

  • Cook Kale 2 minutes in microwave. This will result in al-dente, crispy kale.
  • Mix pasta and kale. Add alfredo sauce.

Notes

1. Remember that the Instant Pot takes 15-20 minutes to heat up before you can actually cook with it. Keep this in mind and start the heat up process while you are preparing your ingredients
2. About garlic. I use packaged, pre-peeled garlic and it is less potent. If you use fresh from the bulb garlic, you may want to adjust and use less garlic).
