This Passover (or year-round) recipe is from Lucy Waverman and was printed in the Globe and Mail (April 12, 2008). Roasting the cauliflower first really boosts the kugel's flavour.

ingredients

  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced (about 4 cups)
  • 14 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into small florets (about 8 cups)

  • 12 cup matzo meal (breadcrumbs can be substituted if not for Passover)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped dill
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley

directions

  • Preheat oven to 450°F Toss cauliflower with 2 tablespoons oil, reserving remainder. Place cauliflower on a baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes tossing occasionally or until browned and tender. Reduce oven heat to 350°F.
  • Heat remaining oil in skillet over medium-high heat and add onions. Sprinkle with salt to help the juices come out. Sauté for about 2 to 3 minutes or until onions have softened.
  • Turn heat to medium-low and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for 18 to 20 minutes or until onions are a thick tangled golden mass. Stir in honey.
  • Pulse cauliflower in a food processor until finely chopped. Transfer to a mixing bowl and stir in onions, eggs, matzo meal, dill and parsley. Season well with salt and pepper and place in oiled baking dish.
  • Bake for 45 minutes or until mixture is browned and set.

    This was a big hit at my seder table. I made it without the honey, and the roasted cauliflower and sauteed onions gave it just a touch of sweetness. I'll make it again.
