Vegetable, chestnut, rice stuffing is a delicious vegan recipe that can be made in either a microwave or conventional oven, and is great for stuffing a squash or as a side dish for all festive occasions.
Begin by removing the shells from the fresh chestnuts, or rinsing and soaking the dried chestnuts in a bowl of water (drain off the water before adding to the stuffing).
Place the 2 cups of water in a covered glass rice pot and bring to a boil on the stovetop.
While the water is heating, wash, peel, clean and dice the vegetables, and place them in a large covered baking dish.
When the water boils, add the brown rice OR the 1/2 cup basmati rice and 1/2 cup wild rice, cover the pot, lower the heat to simmer and cook until all the water is absorbed.
Add the cloves and chestnuts to the veggies in the baking dish and mix well. Cover and cook until the ingredients are tender. Mix occasionally during the cooking process and add a little water if necessary.
When the rice is cooked, add to the veggies and chestnuts, cook until the flavors are blended (usually about 5 minutes). Mix again.
Serve 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!
