Flower Shaped Squash Kugel
I love making foods that represent the seasons! Flower Shaped Squash Kugel is one of my all time favorites!!

The seasons are really weird in Chicago

lilac bush…on my window sill!!
And then I came up with the Flower Shaped Squash Kugel
My famous Flower Shaped Squash Kugel, so named because I make it in this cute silicone flower shaped pan. Every time I bring it out everyone always says “Oooh, look at the pretty flower shaped Kugel!” This kugel is sweet and filled with squash flavor. You can use frozen squash if making this during spring, but if fresh squash is in seasonal…that’s always best!
- 2 10 ounce packaged cooked winter squash, defrosted, drained
- 1/2 cup flour (can be gluten free)

- 1/2 cup soy milk, preferably vanilla flavored
- 3 large eggs
- Non-stick vegetable spray (if using non-silicone pan)

You can use one large fresh squash as well. Simply cook the squash, drain thoroughly and weigh out approximately 20 ounces of cooked squash. Don’t worry if it’s a little more or a teeny bit less!
