Pumpkin Kugel/Pie (Your Choice)!



Pumpkin always seemed to me like a fake vegetable used only in Halloween decorations- funnily enough it turned out to be a wondeful addition to my Shabbat repetoire. The vorlage (shout out to my dead sea scrolls class, the paper of which I should be working on at this moment) of this recipe appears at http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/pumpkin_coconut_tart.html, but my version is a bit healthier, with more common ingredients:



-2 cans pumpkin puree

-1/2 cup sugar

-2 tablespoons dark rum

-1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

-1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

-3 eggs

-3/4 cup orange juice

-hanful of chopped pecans/walnuts and grape nuts for the topping (optional)

–>Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, mix all ingredients well, and put in a greased pie pan, and bake for 50 minutes.


–>Add an additional 1/4 cup of sugar, and place the filling in a prepared pie dish!

This recipe is delicious, and a nice alternative to the usual sweet potato or butternut squash pie (though it does not beat my friend dani’s butternut squash kugel recipe, which I will hopefully write up soon!)ImageImage

    When are you going to get some sephardic inspiration into these dishes, and how come I am not getting to taste any of these dishes?
