Gluten free cholent is easy and delicious when you replace the barley with quinoa. We love this version with a few special surprise ingredients.
This cholent is kosher for Passover too. If you don't have a crockpot just put it in a disposable baking tray, cover tightly and cook it in the oven on low.
Make your own onion soup mix with our all natural recipe.

1 Places all ingredients into the crock pot and cover with water.
2 Then either place the eggs gently on top or cover the top with the matzo ball batter to seal in the chulent and provide a fun topping that tastes great with the chulent.
3 Turn the crockpot on high for 2 hours then lower it to low for the remaining time, usually about 17 hours from the time shabbat starts until lunch the next day.
4 If you made the eggs, don''t forget to take them out and crack the shell before eating them with the chulent.
