Celebrating the Festival of Lights? Hailing from Germany during the 12th century, kugel is a traditional recipe that’s popular in many Jewish households. Typically starting with a starch base and eggs, it’s an ever-evolving holiday staple that can be savory or sweet (ever try cinnamon-raisin kugel? Yum!). This gluten-free take on the classic casserole uses minimal oil and replaces processed egg noodles with nutritious chickpea pasta. Serve your mishpucha (family) this holiday dish and they’re sure to shout l’chaim (to life!) before the celebratory toast even starts.
