Add the kale and cook for 2-3 min. If the water has evaporated add the olive oil and garlic and cook for another 2-3min (if there’s still water in the pan, then drain it off before adding the garlic and olive oil). Add the roasted pumpkin and black rice noodles and stir through. Add more salt and pepper to tasted and scatter pumpkin seeds over to serve.
