In a saucepan or pot with cover, bring 6 cups of water to boiling at high heat. Add 3 cups of brown rice and 1/2 teaspoon, each, of ground cloves, ginger, and cinnamon. Cover. When rice begins to boil, reduce heat to simmer and continue to cook until water is absorbed.

While the rice is cooking:  Wash, peel, and cut carrots and onions into small pieces. Place carrot and onion pieces and frozen peas in large microwaveable dish, cover, and precook in a microwave oven for about 10 minutes at high setting.

Peel and cut plantains into small pieces. Add plantain pieces, raisins, walnuts, cloves, ginger, and cinnamon to precooked vegetables. Mix well and cook in microwave oven at high setting, mixing every 5-10 minutes until vegetables are uniformly tender.

Mix cooked rice and cooked vegetables together. This makes a delicious holiday stuffing for a pumpkin or squash.

Follow the instructions for baking and stuffing a large Hubbard Squash or a medium size Pumpkin (just substitute this stuffing for the one used in those recipes)


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!
