Layered Vegetable Kugel

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Mirj

This kugel involves some work, but it is worth it. I got it from one of my new cookbooks that promotes "new-ish Jewish" cuisine, combining traditional recipes with a modern slant. I usually make this when we have vegetarian guests. It makes a huge amount, so it's a good recipe to bring to potlucks or parties, and you will get all the ooohs and aaaahs when everyone sees the layers, and then again, when they taste a piece.

I made this for the second night of Passover. Everyone really liked it. The broccoli portion of the recipe is absolutely delicious and I think I will make a kugel just of that next time! It is a time consuming dish but I was very pleased to bring something different and tasty to my FIL's for dinner. Thanks for another great recipe Mirjam.
