Kugels are fun. They can be made with many different fruits and vegetables. I have made cauliflower, broccoli,carrot, cranberry, apple, noodle (both sweet and savory), spinach, and onion kugel. I am sure I have made more but at this moment, this is all I can think of. I, hopefully can share this with you as I make them. For many of you, this will be a new dish and I suggest, you try any of these. The most common are Potato kugel and Noodle Kugel.
Here are some places to find recipes:
Top Ten Kugels
Orange Vegetable Kugel
2 sweet potatoes (I used large ones.)
1 large butternut squash
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups non dairy cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
In a microwave, cook butternut squash until slightly soft. It will be easy enough to mash but not completely cooked.
While squash is cooking, peel sweet potatoes and cook in boiling water. I cut them into cubes and cooked for 20 minutes.
Drain off water, cool and place all in food processor. Process until smooth.
Transfer to baking dish, sprayed with non-stick Canola oil. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. Check the center of the kugel and it should not be liquidy.
I found, I had an over-abundance of this and made three different dishes from it. This is the basic kugel which is delicious, as is.
If you would like a topping, add a streusel made of nuts, brown sugar, and a little oil. A plan cinnamon sugar topping should work also. Be creative.
Everyone at our table loved this. It is sweet and rice and yummy. I could make this each week and be happy.
