Pasta dishes can be sweet too! Blogger Sarah at The Hungry Musician created a healthy take on a classic Jewish dish for us. We couldn’t be more delighted with this Pumpkin Spice Noodle Kugel recipe! Not only is it delicious but it’s dairy-free too! Give it a whirl and let us know what you think.

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F.
  2. Cook egg noodles according to package directions. Drain completely and let dry.
  3. While noodles are cooking, bring wine, raisins, and spices to a simmer in a large saucepan. Lower heat, and stir occasionally until wine is thick, syrupy, and completely reduced. Remove from heat.
  4. Combine pumpkin and coconut oil and whisk to combine.**
  5. Stir coconut cream, honey, eggs, and spices into pumpkin mixture.
  6. Add raisins and noodles to pumpkin mixture and toss to coat.
  7. In a separate bowl, combine the corn flakes, walnuts, honey, and coconut oil.
  8. Grease a large, shallow casserole dish with coconut oil or nonstick spray. Add pumpkin noodle mixture to the dish, and sprinkle the corn flake topping evenly over the noodles. Bake for about 35-45 minutes, or until the mixture is totally set and the topping is golden brown.

Notes

  1. *To get coconut cream, leave a can of full fat coconut milk in the fridge overnight to separate. The cream is the solid part.
  2. **Make sure your pumpkin puree is at room temperature before adding the coconut oil, or else the melted oil may solidify!
