Melodys Vegan Noodle Kugel

What you need: 

1 12-oz package wide vegan noodles (I used farfalle; broken lasagne noodles would work as well)
1 15-oz package soft or silken tofu (I used Nasoya Enriched)
3/4 cup Sucanat (you can put in less if this turns out too sweet for your taste)
15 oz. raisins, or more, or less, depending on how much you like raisins (you can also substitute chopped peaches or some other fruit if you have a raisin aversion)
3-4 tart apples, cut into small cubes (I like Granny Smiths best)
1/4 cup applesauce
cinnamon to taste and for dusting
cardamom powder to taste
ginger powder to taste
vanilla to taste

What you do: 

1. Cook noodles according to package directions and drain.
2. Using an electric mixer or blender, cream the tofu with the vegan sugar, vanilla, and spices until smooth.
3. In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients together until everything is well coated with the tofu batter.
4. Pour everything into a lasagne pan or other pan with high sides.
5. Bake at 425 degrees (F) for about 25 minutes or until the top is pretty dry and nicely browned.

I doubled the tofu, as the others suggested, and left out the vanilla, and switched out quinoa for the pasta (to keep it gluten free). It came out perfectly.


Thank you! I used to love noodle pudding but it was waaaay too rich in calories, this is a much healthier and lighter alternative.


Used almond extract instead of vanilla and minus the cardamom and ginger powder. I thought it tasted "OK" but BF who's of Jewish decent loved it. I guess it's one of those dishes you learn to love.
