Apples symbolize a sweet future at holiday meals celebrating Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. This week’s Health-e-Recipe for Apple Noodle Kugel joins that spirit of celebration by putting cancer-fighting apples into a healthy version of this yummy noodle pudding.
Using whole-wheat egg noodles is the first step in putting healthful, cancer-fighting fiber into this dish. Then, instead of the high amounts of butter and sometimes cream or sour cream added to many traditional noodle kugels, AICR’s lower fat version adds vanilla soy milk to 4 eggs split among the 12 servings.
You’ll also find a high proportion of apples in our recipe, plus walnuts — sources of omega-3 fats. Add raisins (and dates if you like), plus cinnamon and you have a delicious hearty dessert that has only 250 calorie per serving.
