Prepare the pasta according to the package directions, in a pot of salted boiling water, until al dente. Reserve 1 cup of the pasta cooking water before draining the pasta.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes. Stir and cook 30 seconds to 1 minute, until the garlic is lightly browned around the edges. Add the kale, salt, and several grinds of pepper and cook, tossing with tongs, until the kale is wilted, up to 1 minute.
Add the spaghetti and toss to combine. Add ½ cup pasta water, lemon juice, lemon zest, and toss. If the pasta is seeming too dry, add the remaining ½ cup pasta water to create a light sauce.
Season to taste. Garnish with parsley and serve with Parmesan or vegan Parmesan.
First make the aioli. In a small bowl whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic, paprika and salt. Taste and add more salt or lemon juice if desired. Set aside.
In a large cast iron or non stick skillet big enough for peppers to sit in a single layer heat avocado oil over medium high heat, until oil is shimmering and very hot.
Add peppers and let sit for about 30 seconds so they have a chance to char and blister before tossing. Cook, tossing every 30 seconds or so until peppers are charred all over and have softened slightly.
Peppers will be done once charred on all sides, and has started to soften, but is still bright green and holding it’s shape. For the best texture and flavor you don’t actually want them to cook all the way.
Serve warm, topped with generous pinch of flaky sea salt, alongside the garlicky aioli dipping sauce. Enjoy!
Using a potato peeler, peel carrots into ribbons. For added support while peeling, I used a knife pinning the top of the carrot in place on the cutting board (literally stab the knife thru the top on the carrot, pinning it in place.)
Place the ribbons of carrot in a bowl and toss with remaining ingredients.
