This recipe is best served over a bed of Brown Rice.  If using our recipe for Brown Rice, make a double batch.  Begin cooking the rice at the same time you begin making this recipe

This recipe can be made in a microwave or conventional oven preheated to 350 degrees F.

Peel and dice the Onions and place in a large covered glass or ceramic baking dish.  Peel and mince the Garlic, and add to the baking dish.  Cook the Onions and Garlic until the Onions begin to get translucent. 

Peel and cut the plantains in half lengthwise, and then cut each half in half again lengthwise.  Cut these strips of plantain into 1/3 inch slices to make quarter circles of plantain.  Place in the covered baking dish with the cooked onions and garlic.

Add the Peas, Orange Juice concentrate, Almonds, Shredded Coconut, Ginger, Turmeric, and Cayenne Pepper.  Mix well and return the covered baking dish to the oven, mixing every 5-10 minutes.  When the ingredients become hot, add the Orange sections.  Continue mixing to ensure that the ingredients are evenly cooked.

When the ingredients are cooked, add the soy sauce. (The plantains should have absorbed most of the excess liquid; if not, before adding the soy sauce you might want to mix a little corn starch in it, to ensure that the liquid will thoroughly coat all the other ingredients).  Mix well.

Serve over the Brown Rice 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!  (d-23)
