Swiss Chard and Brown Rice with Uncheese Bean Sauce
Servings: 6-8


3 lbs. Swiss Chard, chopped
1 Onion, large sweet
2 cups Brown Rice cooked in 4 cups Water

3 cups White Beans, cooked or canned (cannellini or great northern)
1/2 cup Lemon Juice
3/4 cup Nutritional Yeast
4 Carrots, medium size
1 Chipotle Pepper (optional)
Hot Sauce and Smoke Flavor (optional to taste)

The Swiss chard and onions may be cooked in either a wok (stir-frying in a little water), or in a large (4 qt.) covered baking dish in the microwave oven (mixing every 5 minutes).

We begin by placing the rice pot on the stovetop with the water and turning the heat up to high.  We then measure out the rice into a bowl, and wait until the water is boiling.

While the water is heating we also wash and clean the veggies and peel the onions and carrots.

When the water in the rice pot begins to boil, add the brown rice, cover the pot, and reduce the heat to simmer, and cook until all the water is absorbed into the rice, at which time the heat should be turned off.

We like to use our food processor to chop the onions and Swiss chard, but they can also be chopped and dices with a knife.

Place the chopped onions and Swiss chard into the wok or covered baking dish and cook until the onions become semi-transparent.

Place the white beans and other uncheese sauce ingredients into the container of a high speed blender (Vita-Mix type), cover, and run the blender at high speed until all the ingredients are creamy smooth.

When the rice and veggies are cooked, add the rice and the uncheese sauce and thoroughly mix together.  If cooking in a wok, this can be done by mixing over low heat for about 5 minutes, at which time the flavors should be blended together and any excess liquid absorbed or evaporated.  If cooking in a covered baking dish in the microwave, cook the combined ingredients on high for about 5 minutes, mix thoroughly again, and cook for another 3-5 minutes.

Serve with a large tossed salad, 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!
