Green Veggie Kugel

12 servings Prep time: 15 min Cook time: 1 hr

This easy Green Veggie Kugel puts a gluten-free and nutrient-dense spin on a traditional winter comfort food. 

Spinach is high in antioxidant carotenoids as well as vitamin C and it’s an excellent source of plant-based iron and calcium. Along with spinach, cabbage is high in fiber to support optimal digestion, and it also provides polyphenols and sulfur compounds to fight oxidative stress and encourage proper detoxification pathways. 

I love using bone broth in this recipe for an extra dose of amino acids that have been shown to fight inflammation and modulate the immune system. 

This is one warm, comforting recipe that benefits whole-body health. 

Wishing you health and happiness, Mark Hyman, MD
