Hey you Covenant people who are on the Daniel fast, I’ve been making some great dishes and thought I would share them with you. Last night it was Kale & Sweet Potato Soup. Easy to make: Cube the sweet potato in half inch squares, slice up a couple of carrots, mince 2 cloves of garlic, and dice up a half of yellow onion and throw them into two boxes of chicken or vegetable broth and cook. Everything you cook with should be organic. I love Kroger, they have a special organic line now that is not expensive. After those are tender, Put half a red bell pepper, 8 cups of cleaned and chopped kale, a drained can of great white northern beans, 1/4 cup of olive oil, McCormick Greek seasoning, Himalayan crystal salt, pepper, and more broth if necessary. Cooks in minutes, serve with a dollop unsweetened Greek yogurt on top!!
Green Zucchini Casserole: I served this with a green salad with grape tomatoes and purple onions. Saute cubed zucchini (5 large) with half diced onion, half yellow bell pepper, half red pepper, mince garlic in olive oil. Add half to 3/4 cup of bread crumbs, tumeric, Himalayan crystal salt, pepper, garlic powder, rosemary, (I have a rosemary and garlic combo that is divine), one beaten egg, 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup of Ramono cheese, and two pats of butter. (OK, it does have a few calories) Place in baking dish and cook at 375 for 20 minutes. Yummmm.
Vegie Sitr Fry is great for this fast, too. All your favorites: Onion, green, red, yellow peppers, garlic, celery sauteed. Then throw in your favorite greens, tomatoes, Greek Seasoning, Great white northern beans or Navy beans. Stir fry a little and top with Feta Cheese to serve.
Roasted Veggies are great too: Cube sweet potato, beets, butternut squash, bell pepper and onion and toss with olive oil and bake until tender.
Needless to say, try to eat organic as much as possible. No need to put yourself in harms way if possible. Happy Fasting!!!
