Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a small pot of simmering water, poach tofu for three minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat.
  3. Add onions, kale, bay leaf, basil, oregano and thyme.
  4. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes or until onions are translucent, reducing heat to low after 3-4 minutes.
  5. Discard bay leaf.
  6. In a food processor or blender, puree the onion mixture with tofu and miso until smooth and creamy (for a chunkier sauce, mix ingredients by hand). Stir in chopped olives.
  7. Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling water, cook pasta until tender but firm and drain.
  8. Immediately toss with tofu mixture and season with pepper.
