This is another amazing side dish that tastes equally scrumptious hot or cold. I love making it, first because of its ease, and second because I can cook/bake something else while the carrots are steaming and feel really accomplished. It’s kind of like multi-cooking! Thanks HDG.

Start Cooking

Make the Kugelettes

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium flame. Add the onions and begin to sauté them. Meanwhile, peel the carrots and then slice them in the food processor. Add them to the onions and cover. Steam the vegetables until they are soft, about 45 minutes. Remove the pan from the flame.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Transfer the steamed vegetables to a mixing bowl. Add the sugar, starch, eggs, salt and pepper and mix well. Pour this mixture into greased muffin tins and bake for at least 30 minutes. Cool slightly and remove the kugelletes from the muffin pan.


These kugelettes freeze beautifully. Instead of cookies or nosh (which many people don’t eat on Pesach) take these along on your Chol HaMoed outing. Pack in a plastic container with a bag between each layer. Served room temperature; they’re really good. Everyone will appreciate having something healthful to bite into.



You can make this during the year. Just use 1/3 cup flour for the starch.


You can make this in a 9x13-inch pan as well, and bake it for 50 minutes. (It will serve about 15). The reason I like making individual ones is that kugels made with sliced carrots, as opposed to grated carrots, don’t slice as nicely. If you prefer to make one large kugel, and you want it to serve easily, coarsely grate the carrots and proceed as above.

    Carrot Kugelettes

    Delicious Year-Round

    I've made this kugel on Passover with potato starch, and just tried it for Shabbat this week with flour instead -- SO good. I love that it's more savory than your typical carrot kugel, which usually contain so much flour and sugar. 1/3 cup is nothing! (I also grated the carrots instead of slicing them.)

    Absolutely Delicious

    Just made this and am already obsessed. Real tasty & healthy. Just one note, this needs to be baked for much more than 30 minutes, I had to bake mine for about an hour.
