The following recipe cud be adapted for a slow cooker: http://allrecipes.com/recipe... .... I wud use all broth, no water. Omit spaghetti squash. Add extra beans! Reserve spinach and one can of green chiles to add during the last hour or half hour of cooking. Enjoy!

Cholent (made by Ashkenazi Jews) and hamim or adafinia (made by Sephardic Jews) is dish started on Friday just before sunset and cooked overnight for lunch on Saturday. Usually a mix of beans, eggs, potatoes, meat and vegetables, there are also vegetarian versions, with and without boosts of soy protein in some form.
You could take a regular (meat) version and just omit the meat, as many people do. http://toriavey.com/toris...
Or make one of these, designed as vegetarian from the start
