Sweet Potato and Carmelized Onion Kugel

I like sweet potatoes, and the price has come down lately. My family, however, just doesn't enjoy sweet potatoes the way I do. I really don't know why!!

my sweet potato pile
I wanted to come up with a something made with sweet potatoes that the others would enjoy too, and so far 3 of my 4 children are happy with my new kugel.

So I have this pile of sweet potatoes, that I got for a pretty great price (5 shekel/kg), and I decided that now is the time to make a bunch of kugels for the freezer.

Here's the recipe, enough for 1 kugel in a casserole size pan.

2 good size sweet potatoes, diced and steamed (I use a steamer basket in a pot on the stove)

2 good size onions, sliced or diced, cooked in a heavy pan (I used my cast iron pan, my favorite) with olive oil till they begin to carmelize.

2 eggs
2 cups non-dairy "milk" - I use either soymilk or coconut milk
1/4 c. ground flaxseeds

basil (lots), salt, and pepper

First spread the sweet potato out, covering the bottom of the pan. Then, layer the carmelized onions on top of the sweet potatoes.

Mix the eggs, non dairy milk, flaxseed, and seasonings together. (mix very well)

Pour the mixture over the sweet potatoes and onions.

Bake for about 1 hour at 425 F.

Let me know what you think!
