Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Noodle Kugel

Serve kugel warm from the oven or gently reheat it in a low oven (cover the dish with foil to keep it moist). For best results, do not replace eggs with an egg substitute.

  • One 8-oz container sour cream
  • One 8-oz package cream cheese, softened (microwave for 15-20 seconds to soften)

How to cook:
  1. Combine the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. Using your fingers, mix until no lumps of brown sugar remain. Rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture has a clumpy, crumbly texture. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Preheat the oven to 325°F and set an oven rack in the middle position. Butter a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
  3. Bring a large pot of unsalted water to a boil. Cook the noodles for 6 to 8 minutes, or according to package instructions, until tender. Drain well.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the sour cream and softened cream cheese and whisk to combine. Add the half & half, sugar, salt, vanilla, and cinnamon, and whisk until completely smooth.
  5. Spread the cooked noodles evenly in the prepared baking dish. Pour the custard mixture evenly over top. Cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 35 minutes. Remove and discard the foil. The custard should be just set. Sprinkle the streusel topping evenly over the top, making sure to cover all the noodles. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes more, until the streusel topping is crisp. Let cool for about 20 minutes, then cut into squares and serve.
  6. Make Ahead: The kugel and topping can be assembled and stored separately in the fridge up to a day ahead of time, and then baked before serving. (The kugel with the streusel topping may also be fully cooked a day ahead of time and reheated, however the texture will be denser than if baked fresh. To reheat, cover with foil and place in a 325°F oven for 25 minutes; remove and discard the foil, and continue baking for 20 to 25 minutes more, or until warm throughout and crisp on top.)

How to cook:
  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions, but stop the cooking process when the noodles are ALMOST there--until they’re lightly chewy. They’ll finish cooking in the oven.
  2. While the pasta cooks, make the sauce. Throw the ingredients into the blends and blend it until smooth. Now is a good time to taste it and make any necessary changes.
  3. Next, take your thawed frozen spinach or your cooked fresh spinach and squeeze as much liquid out as possible.
  4. After the pasta is cooked, drain the water from it and return it to the pot. Pour the contents of the blender into the pasta and mix it well.
  5. Using your fingers or two forks, separate the wads of spinach into little pieces and gently stir them through the pasta.
  6. Add the whole mixture to a deep square or rectangular baking dish. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs if you like.
  7. Bake the kugel for 15-20 minutes at 400 F (205 C) until the sauce has set and the noodles have finished cooking. The top may get a little brown. If you’d like it more brown, you can broil it if you have a broiler. (I sadly do not.)
  8. Serve it up and enjoy!
  9. Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
