Kosher Vegetarian Cholent

READY IN: 24hrs 30mins
Recipe by Dragoness

Don't be put off by the amount of cooking time (I've quoted the longest time). It is well worth the wait and develops the flavour better with the long cooking. This recipe is adapted slightly from the original which was found at Just Slow

Wow what a great recipe. I made it for a vegetarian guest who was staying over the weekend. I wasn't really looking forward to eating it because I like lumps of meat in my cholent but I have to say the lima beans (butter beans in the UK) are really meaty. The dish was a great success, many thanks!
