The other night I made the Cholent from Veganomicon. It was super easy and the texture was lovely but it was pretty bland on the first night. The book does say it's better the second day and it was. The flavour of the carraway seeds and tarragon had a chance to come out a bit more. I also used homemade tomato sauce rather than tinned. I love my homemade sauce but in this case I think it probably wasn't salty enough. I think I'll make this again and use something a bit punchier next time.
