Passover: Sweet Potato Kugel

I adapted this recipe from one I found on the Peta website while searching vegan passover recipes. In my version, walnuts add protein, Omega-3’s and give it great texture. Peel, process, mix, bake. Done!

1 large raw sweet potatoes, peeled and grated
3 large raw carrots, peeled and grated
1 apple, peeled and grated
1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup matzo meal
1/2 cup quinoa flakes
1 cup water
1/4 cup vegan brown sugar

Preheat the oven to 375.  Place the walnuts on a baking sheet and toast them for 5 to 7 minutes.  Make sure you don’t forget about them; they can burn easily!  When they are done, toss into the food processor and process until fine.

Boil 1 cup of water and add it to the quinoa flakes.  Let it sit for 3 to 4 minutes.

Peel the sweet potatoes, the carrots, and the apples and place them in a food processor and process until fine.  In a bowl, mix the sweet potatoes, carrots, apples, walnuts, raisins, matzo meal, quinoa flakes, brown sugar, and salt.

Press into a baking dish (don’t make it too thick) and crumble a little brown sugar over the top.  Bake at 375 for 45 minutes to an hour or until crisp on top and around the edges.

This kugel is sweet!  Enjoy!
