The walnuts in this sweet kugel give it great texture, and the quinoa flakes add just the right amount of moisture. Peel, process, mix, bake. Done!

1 large sweet potato, peeled and grated
3 large carrots, peeled and grated
1 apple, peeled and grated
1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup matzah meal
1/2 cup quinoa flakes
1 cup water
1/4 cup vegan brown sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°.
  2. Place the walnuts on a baking sheet and toast them for 5 to 7 minutes. When they are done, toss into the food processor and process until fine.
  3. Boil 1 cup of water and add it to the quinoa flakes. Let it sit for 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Peel the sweet potatoes, carrots, and apples and place them in a food processor and process until fine.
  5. In a bowl, mix the sweet potatoes, carrots, apples, walnuts, raisins, matzah meal, quinoa flakes, brown sugar, and salt.
  6. Press into a baking dish (don't make it too thick) and crumble a pinch of brown sugar over the top.
  7. Bake at 375° for 45 minutes to an hour or until crisp on top and around the edges.
