This recipe can be prepared in either a large covered pot on the stove top, or in a larger covered glass or ceramic microwaveable dish in the microwave oven on high heat.

Begin by washing and peeling the onion and carrots.  Cut into small pieces and and place in the cooking pot or dish.  Add the peas, water, cloves, ginger, and cinnamon.  Cover and bring the ingredients to a boil.  Add the rice and mix.  If cooking on the stovetop, reduce the heat to simmer.

While the above ingredients are cooking, peel the plantains and cut into small pieces.

When about 2/3 of the water has been absorbed by the rice, add the plantains, raisins and walnuts, mix, and continue to cook with the cover on until all the liquid is absorbed.

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!
