Ingredients

  • 8 oz. (225g) dry spaghetti
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb. (450g) medium shrimp , peeled and deveined
  • salt , to taste
  • black pepper , to taste
  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 medium onion , diced
  • 3 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese , grated
  • 1 cup almond milk (or any other milk)
  • 2 cups kale leaves , stems removed, chopped
  • salt and freshly ground pepper , to taste

Instructions

  • Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the shrimp and season with salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer and cook 2-3 minutes until shrimp start turning opaque. Flip and cook 1-3 minutes more, until cooked through. Remove from the skillet, cover, and keep warm.
  • Place cauliflower florets in a pot with water, bring to boil and cook for 7-10 minutes, or until cauliflower is fork tender. Remove from heat and drain. Reserve some cooking water.
  • Meanwhile, melt the butter in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until they start to soften, about 3-4 minutes. Add the heavy cream and Parmesan and bring to a boil. Cook for about 1 minute, until the cheese melts. Remove from heat.
  • In a food processor, combine cooked cauliflower with onion mixture and 1 cup almond milk until it is very smooth. Transfer the sauce into a large pan and bring to boil. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. If the mixture is too thick, add more almond milk.
  • Add the chopped kale and stir until incorporated. Cook, stirring, a few minutes more.
  • Add the cooked pasta and mix together until covered with the sauce. Add the shrimp and toss well. Serve with additional freshly grated Parmesan cheese, if desired. Enjoy!
