The entire preparation time for this recipe is about 30 minutes.  Begin by starting the cooking of the Brown Rice in a pot on the stove-top by placing 4 cups of water in a covered glass cooking pot (or another type of cooking pot) and bring to a boil on high heat.

While the water is boiling, clean and peel the onion and garlic.  Dice the onion and place in a large covered microwaveable baking dish.  Crush the garlic and add to the baking dish.  Add as much of the red pepper sauce as you desire, and mix well.  Cover the baking dish and place in the microwave oven until the onions become translucent.  This should take about 5 to 7 minutes on high heat. 

If you are using fresh mushrooms, wash, clean and slice them and add to the onions and garlic when they are about one half way through the cooking process and continue cooking until the onions are finished cooking.  If you are using dried mushrooms, as we did for this recipe, place the mushrooms in a bowl and rinse with water and then cover with water and let them soak for several minutes.

When the water in the rice pot begins to boil add the rice, cover the pot and reduce the heat to "simmer."  When all the water is absorbed, the rice is done.  Remove from heat.

When the onions are cooked add the frozen veggies and the ginger, mustard, and oregano.  If you are using dried mushrooms, drain off the soaking water and add the mushrooms to the baking dish. Place back in the microwave oven until the vegetables are hot and tender.  Mix well a couple of times during the cooking process.  Add the soy sauce, mix well and set aside.

When the rice is cooked, add the rice to the cooked veggies and mix well.  Cover and place back in the microwave oven for another 5 minutes.  Remove the baking dish from the oven and serve.


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-15)
