I took a traditional potato kugel recipe and turned it into my own healthier variation by changing the ingredients. My recipe is still kosher and even if you're not Jewish, it's a healthy side dish for any meal. Of course, you know it's organic if you've been reading my blog!
5 sweet potatoes, finely grated
2 onions (diced)
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup matzah meal (rice flour or whole wheat flour)
1/4 cup orange juice (fresh squeezed)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp ceylon cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
3 organic eggs (slightly beaten)
fresh ground black pepper
Preheat oven 350 degrees.
1) Saute onion in olive oil until golden brown.
2) Place the finely grated sweet potatoes in a colander and squeeze down the sweet potatoes with a large spoon to eliminate extra moisture. Empty into a bowl and add the eggs, matzah meal, orange juice and seasonings. Blend well. Mix the browned onions in with all ingredients.
3) Add the mixture to a greased baking pan and smooth the top. Bake for 1 hour until golden on top and crisp at the edges.
Have a healthy and happy holiday!
