Around the world in 80 Chulents: Veggie!

I feel I have been neglecting you all, and I apologise! I have been attempting some true rest over the festive period, and returning to life after the rest has been more than a little hectic!
After the excesses of the holiday season, whether too many Latkes or too much Turkey, I thought we should reflect on cutting down, and repairing our bodies as well as the world. So this weeks Chulent is a vegetarian offering - I'm sure lots of you also have veggie chulent recipes so do share! This one is from here. Veggie chulent can be hard to get right as it cooks for so long, but this one is designed to do just that!
