 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    8 1/2   oz           Long grain rice
    7       oz           Button mushrooms, finely
                         -chopped
    5       oz           Whole grain bread crumbs
    5       oz           Nuts (any kind such as
                         -almonds, brazil nuts or
                         -unsalted peanuts), chopped
    5       oz           Low fat mozzarella cheese
    4                    Eggs
    4       md           Carrots, grated
    3       md           Onions, chopped
      1/4   c            Sunflower or safflower oil
      1/4   c            Dried parsley
      1/2   ts           Ground black pepper
      1/4   ts           Garlic powder
 
   **  Procedure  **
   
   1) Cook the rice in boiling water for 30 to 35
   minutes, until tender, or use an automatic rice
   cooker. 250g of rice is about 2 small automatic rice
   cooker cups, but please check your rice cooker to be
   sure. When using an automatic rice cooker, add a
   little more water for brown rice than you would for
   white. ie. if you cook 2 small rice cooker cups of
   brown rice, then fill the rice cooker pot to the 3
   level with water.
   
   2) Thoroughly blend everything in a large bowl or pot.
   Then pack the mixture into 2 medium sized (1.4 l or
   1.4 quarts) loaf tins, which have been lightly oiled.
   
   3) Bake at 350F (180C) for 1 to 1 1/4 hours or until
   firm to touch and brown on top. Vegetarian Roast is
   traditionally served, hot or cold, with tomato sauce
   or chutney.
   
   :          **  Variations  **
   
   Fry the onions, carrots, and mushrooms, in the oil
   until softened, before adding them to the entire
   mixture in step #2. Serve with a legume soup, such as
   pea soup or lentil stew. Replace the eggs with a
   commercial egg substitute. Replace the mushrooms with
   green, red, or yellow peppers. Replace the mozzarella
   with cheddar cheese (the older the stronger the
   flavour). Replace the mushrooms with green, red, or
   yellow peppers.
