Grain Free Chulent

For someone with hormonal issues, having chulent in the same meal as challah can present a carb load high enough to be overly taxing on hormones. This grain free chulent is a lower carb option with the same slow cooked, delicious taste and texture as traditional chulent.


  • 1 large onion, diced
  • Avocado oil, for sautéing
  • 2 large yams, peeled and chunked (for an even lower glycemic option use 2 cups of chunked kabocha squash)
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and chunked
  • 1 24-oz. bag cauliflower florets (mini pieces are better)
  • 2-3 pieces flanken, with or without the bone, or 2 pieces of strip steak for a leaner version
  • 2 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric (optional)
  • 3 cups of homemade chicken soup broth, or use Imagine chicken soup or vegetable broth


Begin chulent preparations about 24 hours before you plan to serve it.

Sauté onion in avocado oil on a low flame until soft and golden. Place one bag of cauliflower in your crockpot. Add sautéed onion, sweet potatoes and carrots. Place meat on top. Season with spices and add broth; liquid should come up to an inch or so below the meat. Set crockpot to low.

Before Shabbos, add an extra ½ cup water and leave on low.

It’s a recipe for success.
