Red Pepper Sauce or Cayenne Pepper, to taste (optional)

Peel and dice the Onion and place in a large covered glass or ceramic baking dish.  Add the Hot Pepper and mix well (optional).  Cover and cook for about 5 minutes in a microwave oven on "high," or in a conventional oven at 350 degrees F. until the onion pieces become semi-translucent.

Begin to cook the Brown Rice in a separate pot on the stove top.

Thoroughly wash the Kale (save a few of the tender inner leaves for garnish) and coarsely shred in a food processor or by cutting with a knife.  Add the shredded kale to the onion in the covered baking dish and cook for about 10-15 minutes or until the kale becomes tender.  Mix every 5 minutes to ensure even cooking.

Place the Tofu, Lemon Juice, peeled and cut Carrots, Turmeric, Nutritional Yeast, and Corn Starch in the container of a high speed blender.  Cover and blend on "high speed" until creamy smooth.

When the kale is tender, add the cooked Rice and the blenderized tofu ingredients and mix thoroughly.  Cover and place back in the microwave or conventional oven and cook for another 5 minutes.  Mix again and cook for another 5-10 minutes or until the casserole is firm.  If cooking in a conventional oven, mix after about 10 minutes and then bake for another 15-20 minutes.

Serve with a garnish of kale leaves.


The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-22)
