New Mom Broccoli Kugel


This quick dairy-free broccoli kugel is a must at every event I host or attend. Based on the Jewish version of a crustless quiche (kugel), the casserole utilizes basic ingredients and is easy to put together before popping it into the oven. So easy, I could do it with a new baby in the house.
