Butternut Squash Noodle Kugel

By Yonni @vegandthecity
It is really hard to be vegan at the Jewish holidays. When traditional meals circulate around brisket, chicken soup, challah (made with eggs) and dairy noodle kugel's, we can easily get stuck making our way with some green beans and a fruit platter.
This year, I decide to invent my own kugel recipe, but a totally vegan one.  I haven't baked it yet, but I wanted to share this with all of you before the holiday began. I did taste the cold version and I'm pretty pleased. It will be really yummy warm and crispy.
You will need:
2 boxes quinoa pasta1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded and chopped2 c cashews, soaked in water overnight2 tsp cinnamon 1 TBSP sage1/4 c + 1/4 c vegan butterSalt and pepper to taste
Soak 2 cups of raw, unsalted cashews overnight.Butternut Squash Noodle KugelThe next day, add the cinnamon, fresh sage, and 1/2 tsp salt and purée until smooth. Set it aside.
Preheat your oven to 350.
In separate pots, boil the pasta until al dente and the butternut squash until tender. Drain the water from each, combine in a large bowl, and mix in 1/4 cup vegan butter.

Top with small spoonfuls of the remaining 1/4 cup of vegan butter and bake for 25 minutes. The top noodles should be crispy and browning. If not, leave it in for a little longer.
Serve hot and enjoy! L'shanah tovah u'metukah to all who celebrate Rosh Hashanah!
