  • Author: Jewish Food Hero Kitchen


2 cups of uncooked pasta, (farfelle, fusilli or tagiatelle) can be gluten free

2 cup sliced mushrooms (button, cremini, shitake or a blend of the three) 

2 cups of silken tofu

1 onion

½ cup sugar

½ teaspoon salt

4 tablespoon raisins

1 cup of vegetable broth

1 teaspoon pepper (If you are making this kugal for children, you might reduce the pepper to ½ teaspoon.  If you are making the kugal for adults, you can increase the pepper to 1 ½ teaspoons) 

3 ½ tablespoons Energ Egg Replacer

½ cup breadcrumbs, can use gluten free

Optional: ¼ cup fresh parsley (or another fresh herb of your choice) for garnish


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).

  • Fill the stockpot with at least 4 quarts of water

  • Cook the pasta al dente (as you will be baking it)

  • Drain and rinse in cool water

  • Confirm that you have approximately 3 cups of cooked pasta

  • Set aside 


  • Mix the Energ Egg Replacer with ¼ cup of warm water and set aside. 

  • Heat 1 cup of vegetable broth (or water) in a skillet over medium heat

  • Add the onion and mushroom if you are including them and cook and stir for 15 minutes, or until done 

  • Add more vegetable broth as needed 

In a bowl or blender:

  • Place the silken tofu, sugar, pepper, salt

  • Blend until smooth 

  • Fold in raisins, onions (and mushrooms), and the egg replacer  

  • Add the cooked pasta and mix well


  • Spray the baking pan with non-stick oil spray

  • Transfer the mixture to a lightly oiled pan 

  • Smooth the top with a spatula and sprinkle evenly with the bread crumbs 

  • Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes

  • Remove the foil and add the breadcrumbs 

  • Bake for an additional 10 minutes, until the top is lightly browned

  • Let cool slightly before serving garnished with fresh parsley

This sweet and peppery vegan vegetable kugel is delicious.  It has all the taste points of traditional kugel while being lighter and healthier. It tastes good hot, lukewarm or cold.
