Carbonara is a true classic, but there is nothing wrong with refreshing a classic tradition with a twist! In this recipe we make a vegetarian carbonara with kale and walnuts. Carbonara may sometimes feel heavy to some, but adding kale gives it a different balance. The kale is full of flavour and texture. And there is no need to worry, this does not mean that you have to say goodbye to the delicious creaminess – it comes from the eggs, and it is still there. After all, that is what makes a carbonara a carbonara.
