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.


Tuscan Pepper Stew

October 20th 2014By Alessandra Rovati

Slow cooking is wonderful for tougher cuts of meat, and brings out their juiciness without the addition of fat. It’s also the way to go with beans! My grandma’s neighbors used to stuff beans together with water, garlic and sage inside an empty Chianti bottle (the type with a rounded belly) and bury the base of the bottle in hot ashes in the fireplace overnight. The gentle heat of the embers was enough to cook them to perfection, and I’ve never tasted anything more delicious! This ancient recipe for stew is said to have been created by Florentine tile makers working at the famous cathedral in the early 15th century. What a clever idea, cooking a filling meal side by side with the tiles in their furnace!


Swiss Chard and White Bean Stew

You can whip up this Chard and White Bean Stew in less than 30 minutes, but I also like when it sits longer and gets mushy and warm, it doesn't look as pretty, but it is good. You can serve with meat or fish or it is a complete meal on it's own.

Making a pumpkin and beef stew is easy and comforting, but serving it in the pumpkin shell make it fancy. Or at least exciting. You can use the shell as a large serving bowl or find small pumpkins and give out individual ones.

David Mitnick’s Winning Chulent Recipe


January 8th 2011By Joy of Kosher

From Joy of Kosher – winning chulent recipe. One 18 Quart roaster oven (crock-pot) full of this chulent can feed approx 50 people gathered for a lunch simcha! (65 people if they ate a lot at Kiddush) Helpful hint – extend the life of your roaster oven by setting up a Shabbos clock to shut off the oven after the chulent has been removed so its thermostat doesn’t get too much use when nothing is in the oven.

Chicken Meatball Stew

Chicken Meatball Stew

June 26th 2011By Jamie Geller

This was inspired by a recipe for Italian wedding soup in my new book Quick & Kosher: Meals in Minutes. I have pulled back on the liquid to make this more of a stew rather than soup and swapped the traditional red meat for ground chicken “meatballs.” Abracadabra! It turned into a light entrée that eats like a meal. It’s perfect for a yuntif evening seudah.
