Cabbage or Turnip Kugel

Turnips have a similar flavor profile as cabbage. If you are using turnips in this recipe, shred the roots and roughly chop the greens. Add turnip greens about half way through cooking the roots. This recipe can be made kosher for Passover. If you want you can add noodles the the cabbage mixture or add a layer of puff pastry to the top. The key to making this dish delicious is cooking the onions and cabbage until they are starting to caramelize.

About 1/2 large cabbage or 1 share turnips, finely sliced

1 large yellow onion, sliced

1/4 stick of butter

About 1 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper

3 eggs, beaten

2 tablespoons flour, matzo meal or potato starch

1 teaspoon sugar

1 tablespoon vinegar

Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat and add onions and cabbage (or turnip roots). Spinkle with sugar and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes. When tender and beginning to caramelize, remove from heat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Whisk together eggs, flour and vinegar and add to cabbage. Put mixture into a well greased baking dish and cook at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes.
