Baked Plantain with Tofu and Brown Basmati Rice Excellent for breakfast or dessert - hot or cold
3 Cups Water 1 Cup Brown Basmati Rice 1 medium sized Onion 1 lb. extra firm Tofu 5 Plantains 2 tsp. Cinnamon 1 tsp. Allspice
Peel and dice the Onion. Boil the water and place in a large covered glass or ceramic casserole dish. Add the Rice, Onion, Cinnamon, and Allspice. Stir and place the dish in a microwave (on high) or oven (preheated to 350 degreed F.) for about twenty minutes.
Dice the Tofu. Peel and slice the Plantain lengthwise, then slice the Plantain halves into pieces not over 1/4". Remove the casserole dish from the oven after the initial cooking and add the Tofu and Plantain. Mix well and place back in oven for another 35-45 minutes, mixing at 15 minute intervals. When it is ready, the plantain should be soft, but not mushy, and all the water should be absorbed.
This Plantain dish makes a special breakfast served hot right out of the oven. If there are leftovers, refrigerate and serve cold or warmed as a dessert.
