Daniel Fast Recipe

I found this recipe on this website. Many people I know are doing a Daniel Fast right now - of course it's for spiritual purposes. But they've got great dieter's recipes as well.

Bean and Rice Casserole
Beans and rice combine to make a complete protein. So this casserole serves as an excellent source of protein during the Daniel Fast.

Preheat oven to 375

1 medium onion, chopped
2 cup uncooked brown rice
1 can red kidney beans (15 1/4 - 19 oz), drained and rinsed
1 can black beans (15 1/4 - 19 oz), drained and rinsed
1 can garbanzo beans (15 1/4 - 19 oz), drained and rinsed
1 can stewed tomatoes (14 1/2 - 16 oz), drained
1 can chopped mild chilies (4 oz), drained
10 ounces frozen green peas, thawed by placing under running water
1 cup frozen corn, thawed by placing under running water

In a 5-qt Dutch oven over medium high heat, sauté onion in liquid of your choice (balsamic vinegar, olive oil, water) until tender, stirring occasionally.
Add rice; cook while stirring until parched and slightly opaque.
Add beans, tomatoes, chilies and 3 1/2 cups of water to rice and onion in Dutch oven and bring mixture to boil.
Cover tightly place in oven, baking until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed (around 1 hour for brown rice).
Add peas and corn, adjust seasonings, and return to oven until heated through.

Yield: four servings
