Daniel Fast Cabbage Soup

From "The Daniel Fast" by Susan Gregory

We’ve all heard of the “cabbage soup diet.” Well, this is not it! However, the nutrients and flavors are rich in this recipe and it’s quick to make and low in the calorie department.

Hats off to the Cook Chili with Tofu

From "The Daniel Fast" by Susan Gregory

Chili is a filling meal, and perfect for the Daniel Fast. The tofu packs the main dish with protein and really does seem like ground beef. Double or even triple this recipe so you have some to freeze. Also, spoon single-serving amounts into ziplock bags, freeze flat, and use for later lunches.

Chipotle Chiles in Adobo Sauce

Zesty Black Bean Soup with Chipotle Chiles

From "The Daniel Fast" by Susan Gregory

Dried beans tend to cook unevenly, so be sure to taste several beans to deter- mine their doneness in step 1. Prepare the soup ingredients while the beans sim- mer and the garnishes while the soup simmers. You don't need to offer all of the garnishes, but choose a couple; garnishes add not only flavor but texture and color as well. Leftover soup can be refrigerated in an airtight container for 3 or 4 days; reheat it in a saucepan over medium heat until hot, stirring in additional vegetable broth if it has thickened beyond your liking. The addition of chipo- tle chiles in adobo—smoked jalapeños packed in a seasoned tomato-vinegar sauce—makes this a spicier, smokier variation of Black Bean Soup.

Tuscan Villa Bean Soup

Golden Carrot Soup

"Daniel Fast" by Susan Gregory

Pork is usually the protein ingredient found in this main dish originating in north- ern China, but this vegetarian variety works well on the Daniel Fast as a great addition to your meal plans. Serve with whole wheat Chapatis or Indian Flatbread.

Vegetable and Bean Paella

There is a charming legend about how paella got its name. The story is that in fifteenth-century Spain during a period of great hardship, families had very little food. So when marriages took place, everyone brought a little food to “add to the pot” for the meal provided by the bride’s family.

This recipe takes some time, but it’s a great breakfast meal for weekends on the Daniel Fast. I like to change the potatoes, depending on my schedule and what I have available. For fast meals, frozen shredded potatoes are great. But my favorite way to prepare this meal is to use chopped new potatoes.

Mango lassi is a type of smoothie commonly made in India. However, the main ingredient is yogurt. This recipe is close to the classic lassi using tofu, mango,
orange juice, and a little lemon juice to simulate the familar tang of yogurt. You can substitute pineapple or other tropical fruits for this healthy liquid breakfast meal.

Black Bean, Corn & Brown Rice Stuffed Peppers

We are so accustomed to eating meat, poultry, or chicken as a main course that it can be challenging on the Daniel Fast to prepare something that seems as substan- tial. This recipe definitely fits the bill! I love these little gems, and the beans and rice form a complete protein so it’s satisfying all around! This is also one of those reci- pes that’s even better the next day as the flavors fuse in all the ingredients.

Herb-roasted Sweet Potato Fries

If you do a little research, you will quickly learn that sweet potatoes are so much better for you than the typical variety of potato. These fries are flavorful and fun to eat. They make a great addition to your hearty salads, soups, and stews; or serve them as a snack or appetizer. You may never go back to the “other fries” again!

Classic Navy Bean Soup (The DF way)

My mother used to make navy bean soup when I was growing up, but she always added a ham bone to the recipe. This Daniel Fast version is also tasty, and keeps up to a week in the refrigerator, plus it freezes well. Serve a bowl of this hearty soup with a simple salad and Indian flatbread for a delicious meal.

This smoothie is light, but still very filling. For additional nutrients, consider add- ing fresh or frozen spinach. The great news is that you won’t taste the spinach, and the deep color of the blueberries masks the green color.
