You can make kugel with zuchini, potatoes and probably lots of other vegetables. It's basically an egg pudding.
Here's a version I threw together last night that was quite good.
Potluck Potato Kügel
Feel free to add and subtract things that make sense (ex. cooked or grated carrots).
This will probably work with up to a cup of leftover mashed potatoes. I had about 2/3 cup.
Add about 1 tbs. each chopped green pepper, celery and onion. 1 minced garlic clove. Salt and pepper to taste. (I used white pepper.)
2 jumbo eggs.
A little (1-2 tbs.) matzo meal, cracker meal or breadcrumbs.
A dash of turmeric (for health and color.) A dash of smoked paprika (can't hurt!)
1 tbs. rendered chicken fat or olive oil if you're not into the schmaltz.
Mix well with a fork. Pour into a greased oven-proof dish (I used a Pyrex bowl). Allow room for it to rise about 50%.
Bake in a tabletop convection oven (a/k/a glorified toaster oven) at 425° for approx. 25 minutes until golden (not burnt) brown.
Allow to cool slightly before serving.
Probably works in a conventional oven, too. Lemme know.
