Sweet Potato Kugel Parfait

Sweet Potato Kugel Parfait

Did y’all have a Happy Cinco de Mayo? I sure did! An excuse to nosh on tacos and margaritas?! No wonder it is one of my top five favorite holidays. And that says a lot because I love every holiday. Between that and the Austin Food & Wine Festival shenanigans, I’m pretty darn full! So back to healthy eating this week with this parfait made from my leftover sweet potato kugel! If you don’t have some leftover kugel lying around, this would be pretty tasty with some cinnamon sugary mashed sweet potatoes too. A sneaky way to get some veggies in with breakfast! And if there is one thing I enjoy nearly as much as holidays, it’s being sneaky.

You know what else I enjoy? Chatting with adorable celebrity chefs like Fabio Viviani! Fabio stopped in Austin to talk about his cookbook Fabio’s Italian Kitchen, which looks absolutely amazing. I love how he is sharing his Nonna’s beloved recipes in the book just like I share Bubbe’s on WJWE! Look how much we have in common already. Fabio took the time to speak with a few local bloggers and he is just hysterical!

Fabio shared lots of great tips, including how Americans are too hung up on measuring. “Measurement kills your common sense! If it’s missing salt, add more salt!” Genius. My amiga Amy sneakily took some videos during the chat. I was too busy drooling and naming out future children. Fabio was explaining here how he doesn’t really keep in touch with the other Top Chef contestants: “It’s not like we are besties so Bravo can make another show and call it Top Besties or anything!”

Part 2!

Sigh. Fabio doesn’t seem too concerned with the meat heavy cookbook: “If you feel bad for the veal, don’t read the veal recipes!” For him, “the joy of eating a ribeye is way more compared to the bothersome of eating a carrot.” Mmm ribeye.

We look pretty adorable together right?? Right! Okay, onto the parfait! In one bowl, mash up sweet potato kugels together. In another bowl, mix plain Greek yogurt (I used Chobani), honey, and cinnamon.

Scoop about 1/4 of the potato mixture into a glass. Layer on 1/4 of the yogurt mixture, sprinkle with graham crackers and walnuts. Repeat another layer of each and top with more nuts and cinnamon. Repeat in another glass.
