Vegetarian Chicken Apple Sausage Cholent

If you are looking for a different kind of cholent this one is for you. You can make it vegetarian as I did using veggie chicken apple sausage, but you can still keep it pretty healthy by using real chicken apple sausage. I do suggest frying the onions and sausage and even the vegetables before cooking for added flavor.


  • Prep Time : 20 min
  • Cook Time : 8 hour
  • Ready Time : 8 hour, 20 min


6 Servings


  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 medium onions, sliced into half rings
  • 1 12 oz. package of vegetarian or regular chicken apple sausage links, cut into pieces
  • 2 medium potatoes, halved and sliced
  • 1 large carrot stalk, cut into chunks
  • 1 bag of Manischewitz Four Bean Mix (beans should be soaked for a few hours or overnight)
  • 1/2 cup barley
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 carton Manischewitz Vegetable Broth


Heat oil in a medium to large frying pan.  Once hot add onions and sauté until golden, remove to slow cooker or 9×13 baking pan.  Add sausage to the pan and fry until golden, place on top of the onions.  Add potatoes and carrots to the pan and brown before adding to the baking pan.

Pour beans and barley over the vegetables.  Sprinkle seasoning packet, cumin and paprika over top and then pour in vegetable broth.

If using a slow cooker, cover and set on low, cook a minimum of 8 hours and up to 18 for Shabbat lunch.  If using a baking pan, cover tightly and place in a 225 degree oven for the same amount of time.

    Can you share the brand of the sausage so I know what to look for? (We’re outside of NY)

    • I used a Vegetarian Chicken Apple Sausage by Tofurky. If you want to try real chicken apple sausage I don’t think Jack’s sells it anymore, some local butchers might make their own or you can try ordering from this place in LA http://www.jeffsgourmet.com

    Is a carton of Manischwitz broth 1 quart? Also the recipe mentions a seasoning packet. Where did that come from?

    My mother used to make a cholent with lima beans, and flanken in a tomato based sauce. i have been searching for the recipe for years. Does anyone out there have it?

    • Hi Debbie, my mother in law makes a stew with lima beans and meat. It’s a pretty simple recipe. Soak the beans overnight, rinse and drain. Add to the crockpot with stew meat, a can or two of tomato sauce, some stock, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

    I cannot find the 4 Bean mix. Can I substitute another Man. flavor?

    • Probably, just make sure it has a nice mixture of beans and not just lentils or peas.

        I found a Basic Bean Soup mix recipe that includes the proportions for the spice mix too. I will not include the ham hock.

  6. What a awesome tasty and flavorful recipe. Very filling for me, great for a nice dinner. And I love the chicken apple sausage.
