This vibrant spaghetti is a quick & healthy dinner chock-full of vegetables. Basically easy aglio oglio, all dressed up. Swap out the Swiss chard for spinach or kale, if that’s what you have/like.

  • 2 bell peppers, cut into thin strips (I used orange and red)
  • Swiss chard (I used rainbow variety), about 2 cups, finely chopped 
  • 2 cups steamed broccoli 
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced 
  • ¼ cup olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • Freshly ground black pepper salt 
  • 1 lbs of long strand pasta
  • Crushed red pepper flakes, as needed 
  • Vegan feta, crumbled, as needed (optional)
  • Heat ¼ cup oil in a large heavy wok over medium. Cook garlic, stirring occasionally, until sizzling, about a minute. 
  • Season with black pepper & stir in the peppers and cook for 3-4 minutes 
  • Meanwhile, cook pasta, stirring occasionally, until al dente
  • Add the Swiss chard to the peppers and sprinkle the crushed red pepper 
  • Using tongs, add pasta to the peppers & Swiss chard in the wok, stir in the broccoli & splash in about 1/2 cup pasta water. 
  • Cook, tossing until sauce lightly coats pasta, about 2 minutes.
  • Serve pasta topped with vegan feta, if using.
