Halloween - Witchy Pasta Sallad

Prepare your brooms and wands as this salad might awaken the magic spirit within you!


  • 12 oz/360g Pumpkin, diced into 2 inch cubes
  • 2 teaspoons Olive Oil
  • 3 oz/100g Kale, torn into small pieces
  • 2 teaspoons Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Minced Garlic
  • 250 grams / 8 oz Pasta Spirals (or shape of choice)
  • 3 tsp Rawnice Activated Charcoal Powder

Balsamic Maple Dressing:

  • ¼ cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil
  • ½ teaspoon Minced Garlic
  • 1 ½ tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • Salt/Pepper, to taste


  • ½ cup Toasted Slivered or Flaked Almonds
  • ⅓ cup stoned and halved Olives


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.

  2. Combine diced Pumpkin and 2 teaspoons Olive Oil in a bowl. Season with Salt and Pepper, and toss to combine. Disperse pumpkin out onto a baking tray lined with non-stick cooking paper. Roast for 20-25 minutes or until tender and golden.

  3. Meanwhile, in a large saute pan, heat 2 teaspoons of Olive Oil with ½ teaspoon of Minced Garlic. Add torn Kale and saute until Kale has slightly wilted and is no longer tough. Season with Salt and Pepper and set aside.

  4. Bring a pot of water to boil and cook the pasta according to directions. Once al dente, drain immediately and pour into a large bowl. Add 3 teaspoons of Rawnice Activated Charcoal Powder to hot pasta and toss to combine. Your pasta should turn a witchy shade of black.

  5. In a small bowl, whisk all ingredients for Balsamic Dressing until combined. Pour ¾ of the dressing on the pasta and toss. Gently fold in your Roasted Pumpkin, Kale, Toasted Almonds and Olives.

  6. Serve in a large bowl, and garnish with more Almonds, Olives and the remainder of your Balsamic Dressing. Enjoy!
