We reduced the amount of evoo to just what is needed and we subbed half the potatoes for cauliflower. Don’t get us wrong, we have nothing against potatoes, they are high in potassium and vitamin C and we left the skin on to save a step and add fiber. Cauliflower helps reduce the calories and adds vitamin K,which and antioxidants which will reduce your risk for cancer and heart disease.
This recipe is available free to everyone brought to you by Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil as a taste of our Fresh Families Meal plan.
Healthier Potato Kugel
Yield 6 Servings
This recipe breaks our 1 pan rule, you do have to heat the evoo in pan or pot, but it is so worth it. We took our original traditional potato kugel and reduced the calories, carbs and fat by more than half!!!
- ¼ cup plus 1-2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, such as Colavita
- 3 eggs
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
- 1 head cauliflower (about 1 ½ lbs/ 3 cups shredded) or frozen, thawed

- Grease 1 (8-inch) glass square baking dish (or 8- or 9-inch round glass casserole dish) with 1-2 tablespoons of evoo.
- Place baking dish in oven and set oven to 425°F. Let baking dish preheat with the oven until ready to use.
- Beat eggs in a large bowl. Add salt and pepper, mix well, and set aside.
- Warm remaining ¼ cup evoo, in a small saucepan, over medium-low heat.
- In a food processor, grate or shred cauliflower, onion, and potatoes.
- Add vegetables and warm oil to egg mixture and mix well to combine.
- Remove heated dish from the oven and fill with cauliflower-potato mixture.
