Mini Root Kugel

I have a feeling that root vegetables have made it back into popularity big-time
 over the last decade. This includes those that I think were not so popular such 
as parsnips and turnips. You may have noticed that I am using parsnips often,
these days. There is a subtle but definitive flavor from them and it is one that 
we like.

Most often, they are one of the vegetables for my chicken soup but now I also make
root vegetable soups and casseroles.


This time, I wanted to make a kugel with them and could not find exactly what I was
looking for so I threw together a little bit of this and a little bit of that and made these 
mini kugels that were great as well as adorable.

Mini Root Vegetable Kugel

Ingredients: (all vegetables should be peeled)

2 zucchini, grated
2 carrots, grated
1 large turnip, diced
2 parsnips, diced
1 huge onion, slice thin and then rough chopped
3 eggs
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup crumbs (bread, cracker, tortilla or your choice)

Method:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Spray cooking oil on muffin tins (24)

Hand grate or grate in food processor, all vegetables (I did the onion 
by hand).

In a large bowl, mix eggs and seasoning. 

 Add oil and tortilla chips crumbs and mix in.


 Add vegetables and mix well.

Pour into muffin cups and bake for 25-30 minutes. 

Check with a toothpick or knife to make sure it comes out clean. It should begin to
brown.

Eat and enjoy.
