Saba Cooking Banana Sweet Potato Vegetable Rice Stuffing Preparation:
Begin by placing the rice pot and water on the stove, and heat to boiling.
While the water is heating, peel, wash, and dice the onion, and place in a large microwaveable glass or ceramic covered dish.
Wash and peel the sweet potatoes and carrots. Dice them and add to the onions. Add the seasoning and mix. Add the frozen peas on top, cover, and place in the microwave oven on high until the onions begin to become semi-translucent, mixing ever 10 minutes. The dish may also be baked in a conventional oven at 350 degrees F.
When the water in the rice pot begins to boil, add the rice, cover, reduce the heat to simmer, and cook until all the water is absorbed into the rice.
While the rice and the veggies are cooking, peel the saba or cooking bananas, and dice them. We find that this is easily done by splitting each peeled banana lengthwise, and then split each half lengthwise, and then cut across all four quarters to dice them.
When the veggies are nearly fully cooked, mix in the diced saba or cooking bananas, cover the dish, and cook for another 10 minutes or until everything is tender.
Mix in the cook rice and cook for another 10 minutes to blend the flavors.
Stuff a squash to serve as a main meal, or server it as a side dish. It is also great as a left over. We often use the hot stuffing as a side dish the first day, and stuff the hollow of a squash with the leftovers the following day.
