Sweet potato kugel

Here’s a recipe we love on days which call for a quick, one-dish dinner the whole family will love – and as you can imagine, in a house with a toddler and a baby, those days are many!

You will need:

1 onion, cut into half-rings or chopped as you like, and lightly sautéed in a pan

1 medium sweet potato, roughly grated. Can be also made with potato or zucchini for variety.

250 gr of pasta or noodles of the short narrow kind – broken spaghetti will do

3 eggs

1 tbsp. tahina or hummus (can be omitted)

Salt and pepper to taste; I add a teaspoonful of sweet paprika for a nice color.

Cook pasta according to instructions and mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Bake at medium heat for 40-50 minutes. The top will come out lightly browned and crispy; if you prefer it soft, cover with foil after about half the baking time.

I LOVE kugel! The tahini in this recipe intrigued me. I can imagine that being very, very tasty. Will have to try when the weather cools off again.
