Cauliflower-Leek Kugel with Herbed Almond Topping
I feel pretty safe saying that I’m something of a kugel expert. I am infinitely familiar with sweet desert kugels…sweet dinner kugels….vegetable kugels…noodle kugels…meat kugels (although I haven’t had one in years) you name it…I’ve probably had it in kugel form.
This VwaV recipe, however, was my first vegan kugel, and the actual kugel part was damn good. I replaced the matzos in the recipe with sourdough flatbread crackers which lent the dish a pretty exciting dimension…I just thought the topping was a bit much.
When I make this again (and I will make this again) I’ll probably just mix together parsley, dill and panko with a bit of olive oil for the topping. I just didn’t need all the almond and additional crackers in there, it was a bit too much crunch for me.
