Raisin rice nut stuffing is a delightful vegan treat for any festive meal. This recipe will make 4-6 servings as a side dish or it will stuff an equal number of half squash "seed bowls" such as acorn or butternut. Any leftovers can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator for a few days.
Begin by boiling the water in a covered glass cooking pot on the stove top. Add the seasonings and rice and lower the temperature to simmer. Add all the remaining ingredients, and continue to simmer in the covered pot until all the water is absorbed into the rice. Remove from heat and mix thoroughly. Taste a little of the stuffing; if it is dry or the rice is not fully cooked, add another 1/4 cup of water, cover and simmer for another 10 minutes. (The above photo shows a stuffed acorn squash half served in an individual baking dish.)
Enjoy as a side dish or as a stuffing for acorn, butternut or Hubbard Squash.
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!
