We prepare this recipe in a stainless steel, electric wok.

In a saucepot, bring 4 cups of water to boiling on the stovetop. Add 2 cups of basmati rice (we use brown basmati rice). Cover, reduce heat to simmer, and cook until water is absorbed.

Chop by hand or by food processor the washed kale and the cleaned and peeled onions, garlic, and carrots.

Place in a heated wok with a cup of water (no oil), and stir. Stir-fry until vegetables are tender.  Add additional water as needed.

Peel and cut plantains in bite-sized pieces. Add to the wok and continue stir-frying until the plantains are tender.  Add additional water as needed. 

Reduce the heat to about 250 degrees F. Add the drained chickpeas, raisins, walnut pieces, and seasonings and mix well.

Add the cooked basmati rice.  Continue to stir until flavors are blended.  Add a small amount of water, as needed.

Serve and Enjoy!

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!
