Lentil, Sausage and Cabbage Slow Cooker Cholent

Cabbage Lentil and Sausage Slow Cooker Stew

This slow cooker recipe can be put up in the morning and served that night or left on overnight for Shabbat. It is warming and hearty, but a little lighter than your average cholent, making it a good substitute during the Summer. Plus it is almost like a sausage with kraut and lentils that one might serve at a Summer BBQ.
