When you run a grain free, real food kitchen, you get into the habit of cooking more than you need. This Grain Free Cranberry Pumpkin Kugel is a result.
This season, I seem to always have either butternut or kabocha squash on hand. I was invited to a potluck and decided to bring a grain free side dish.
Grain-Free Cranberry Pumpkin Kugel
Kugel is typically made with noodles and eggs, but I wanted a grain free version.
The result was a delicious grain free kugel that also went well with a brunch or lunch – or would go well with a thanksgiving dinner!
