Begin by placing the water in a 2-1/2 qt. pot with a cover on the stovetop. Bring Water to a boil on at �high� setting. Add the brown Rice and stir. When the water begins to boil, stir again and cover. Lower the heat to simmer. Do not stir again. The Rice should be done in about 20-30 minutes.

Meanwhile, put the Dates, Bananas, and Cornstarch in a high-speed blender. Cover with the lid and run blender at high speed until the contents are creamy-smooth. Then pour into a mixing bowl if you want to bake the pudding, as in the photos.  If you wish to prepare a soft and creamy version of this recipe, see the instructions below.*

When the Rice is finished cooking, add it to the Banana-Date mixture in the mixing bowl. Add the Raisins and the Cinnamon and mix together.

Scoop out into a 9-inch X 13-inch baking dish. Dust surface of pudding with a few sprinkles of ground Cinnamon. If using a glass baking dish, you can cook the pudding in a microwave oven at �high� setting for about 10 to 15 minutes. If using a conventional oven, bake at 350 degrees F. for about 20 to 30 minutes. Stop baking if the pudding surface begins to show �cracks.�  (To enlarge the photo of the banana rice pudding, click on the photo or link)

Remove from oven, cut into squares or scoop into dessert bowls, and enjoy!

*If you desire a soft creamy version of this recipe, when the rice is finished cooking add the banana and date blend and the other ingredients to the rice in the pot and mix thoroughly while simmering on the stovetop.  When the pudding thickens, remove from the heat, cover, and let stand for about 20 minutes before serving hot, or it may be cooled and refrigerated if you desire to serve cold.  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!  (d-29)
