We prepare this recipe in a wok for ease and speed in cooking, but it can also be made in a large covered glass or ceramic baking dish in a conventional or microwave oven. 

We begin by heating the water for the brown basmati rice in a covered glass cooking pot on the stovetop.

While the water is heating, wash, peel, and dice the onions and place them in the wok (photo-left).  Add a little water for stir-frying and fry at 375 degrees.  Stir constantly, adding additional water as needed to keep the onions from sticking.  When the onions become semi-translucent (photo-right), turn the heat off.  (To enlarge the photos, click on the photos or links)

When the water (on the stovetop) boils, add the brown basmati rice, cover, and turn the heat down to simmer.  It should take about 20 minutes for the rice to absorb all the water.  Once all the water is absorbed, turn the heat off.

Peel the ripe plantains, split them lengthwise, and slice into 1/4 inch thick half circles.  Open the tofu package and cut the tofu into approximately 1/2 inch cubes.  Add the plantains, tofu, peas, and seasonings to the wok, and cook until the peas are hot and tender.  Turn the wok off, if the rice isn't finished cooking.  (To enlarge the photo of the onions, plantain, peas and tofu cooking, click on the photo or link)

When the rice and the contents of the wok are finished cooking, add the cooked rice to the wok.  Simmer and stir together for a few minutes for thorough mixing.  (To enlarge the photo of the final cooking of the plantain peas tofu spice, click on the photo or link)


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-32)
