So I made this kugel for a seder today, and because the seder wasn't kosher I had nothing to worry about. If you're Sephardic you can make this recipe kosher for Passover by substituting something like maple syrup for the barley malt (might taste better too) and rice or quinoa or other type noodles. But it's good for other times of the year for anyone! Kugel, for people not "in the know" is noodle pudding. I got this recipe form Aura's Kitchen website (www.auraskitchen.com). Made it for a group of non-veggies, and they liked it. They said they couldn't taste the soy either.
