Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue cooking and stirring until the onion is very tender and dark brown, 15 to 20 minutes more.
  2. Layer half the potatoes on the bottom of a slow cooker. Add the cooked onions and rice; top with the remaining potatoes and beets.
  3. Nestle the eggs into the mixture: they should be almost completely submerged when you add the water.
  4. Mix the garlic powder and seasoned salt into 1 cup of water. Pour over the cholent. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with 1/4 cup of olive oil.
  5. Add water to cover. Too much water will make your cholent mushy; not enough may cause it to burn.
  6. Cover with the lid and set your slow cooker on low; cook overnight.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • The cooking time will vary according to the intensity of heat in your slow cooker. Because the rice will absorb a majority of the water, the potatoes and beets (which lose their red) near the surface may appear burnt.

I was looking to make a veggie cholent this week and wanted to use bets so I was happy to see this. I think I am going to try wheatberries instead of rice and I might add butternut squash - I hope that works.
