Butternut Squash Noodles w/Roasted Kale & Mushrooms in Creamy Chickpea Sauce

Super lucky I got not one but two spiralizers for Christmas this year.  So far I haven't quite perfected exactly how to use both of them at the same time but I think I might be on to something there... and you know, maybe that really awful, less-than-entertaining, second sentence is just a poorly executed joke used to mask the fact that I don't actually have a need for two spiralizers but I'm definitely not planning on getting rid of either of them anytime soon.

4 tbsp olive oil, divided
1 butternut squash, peeled and cut into noodles using a spiralizer
1 head of kale, stemmed and roughly chopped.
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp lemon pepper seasoning
10 oz cremini mushrooms, quartered
1 tbsp liquid aminos, soy sauce, tamari
1 tsp liquid smoke
  1. Preheat your oven to 400.
  2. Coat your mushrooms in the aminos and liquid smoke + 1 tbsp of olive oil and pop them in the oven.
  3. Use another tbsp of olive oil to massage your chopped kale. Make sure the kale gets evenly coated in the garlic powder and lemon pepper seasoning and then pop that in the oven also.
  4. Toss the butternut noodles in the remaining 2 tbsp of olive oil. And then guess what happens?! YOU PUT THEM IN THE OVEN TOO! (about 10 minutes is all they need). You'll know it's ready because the mushrooms will have released their juices and the kale will be tender and bright green. The noodles will be al dente.
  5. Toss the noodles and kale in the Creamy Chickpea Sauce (recipe below) and top with mushrooms.

Creamy Chickpea Sauce

1 1/2 c chickpeas
3/4 c chickpea brine (or water)
1 tsp Better than Bouillon Vegetable Broth
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp red mellow miso
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp dried basil
salt and pepper, to taste
  1. While your food's cooking blend the remaining ingredients together to make the creamy chickpea sauce. Get it on the stove over medium high heat and get it warm all the way through. Toss with noodles.
