Baked Plantain with Tofu and Brown Basmati Rice
Excellent for breakfast or dessert - hot or cold


3 Cups Water
1 Cup Brown Basmati Rice

1 medium sized Onion
1 lb. extra firm Tofu
5 Plantains
2 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. Allspice

Peel and dice the Onion.  Boil the water and place in a large covered glass or ceramic casserole dish. Add the Rice, Onion, Cinnamon, and Allspice.   Stir and place the dish in a microwave (on high) or oven (preheated to 350 degreed F.) for about twenty minutes. 

Dice the Tofu.  Peel and slice the Plantain lengthwise, then slice the Plantain halves into pieces not over 1/4".  Remove the casserole dish from the oven after the initial cooking and add the Tofu and Plantain.  Mix well and place back in oven for another 35-45 minutes, mixing at 15 minute intervals. When it is ready, the plantain should be soft, but not mushy, and all the water should be absorbed.

This Plantain dish makes a special breakfast served hot right out of the oven.  If there are leftovers, refrigerate and serve cold or warmed as a dessert.

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!
