Recipes I've Shared:

Cherry Cream Salad

This is the full sugar version of the cherry pie filling salad. If you make 1/2 cup servings, cut the nutritional info in half.

Low Fat Sugar Free Cream Puffs

Delicious Low Fat no Sugar

Gingered Pineapple Cranberry Chutney

I developed this to go with Black Bean Patties. Since craisins and crystalized ginger do have sugar, this recipe is not quite Daniel Fast legal, but close. I guess you could substitute fresh/frozen cranberries and fresh ginger.

Black Bean Patties

Since Daniel Fast Friendly recipes were hard to find, I worked out a few of my own. We actually used this to stuff bell peppers first and liked it so decided to see if it would work in patties.

Daniel Fast Red Beans and Rice

Looking for Daniel Fast friendly recipes tends to be a bit of a challenge, so I have developed some of my own. Here is a filling "legal" version of a classic.

Fruity Brown Rice Salad

This is a vegan recipe, compatible to the Daniel Fast. It was hard to find recipes so I have made up a few. This is one that we really liked. We agreed it would be good with walnuts added.

West African Peanut Soup - Vegan

I know there are already several recipes with this name, however, this version is vegan friendly and is okay to use on the Daniel Fast. Very tasty - something different

Greek Vegetable Stew

I adapted this recipe a little from the Daniel Diet but it is still "legal" on the Daniel Diet. Recipe calls for green beans and zucchini. It also calls for fresh tomatoes. This is a very pleasing combination.

Black Beans over Polenta

This is a vegan version with vegetarian and full meat additions

Cheese Fudge

We adapted this recipe from a recipe submitted to the Kansas City Times by the American Royal Dairy Princes back in the mid 1970s. We like this fudge because it doesn't seem so excessively sweet and we can justify that it is good for us because it has cheese in it. LOL

Whole Grain Crescent Rolls 1 roll

You can make up a batch and freeze them, taking out just what you want for a meal.

Spicey Beef Crumble

Versatile mixture of lean ground beef and vegetables that can be served in a bun, over rice, over a baked potato, or your favorite pasta. Includes a full seving of vegetables. A great dish to make two or three times what you need and freeze a batch or two for later.

Traditional Scrapple

I adapted three different recipes to come up with this favorite

Rice Diet fruit and rice

This is a recipe for the fruit and rice only days on the Rice Diet.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

This is a deliciously wicked dessert - not one you want to have often, but worth the extra calories for something special.

Lower-Fat Ham Salad

We cut out more than half the mayonnaise and then used the lite version to cut down on the fat. We used regular home baked ham leftovers, so the fat content is higher than if you would use a low-fat ham.

Monster Cookies from Betty Crocker

I have used this recipe during my children's growing up years but haven't made them in several years This a little different because mine used an 18 oz jar of peanut butter and a small round box of oatmeal. I'm looking for my recipe.

Cherry Orange Salad

This has been a favorite family recipe for at least 30 years. You can add whipped topping, if desired, but we like it just as well without it.

Chocolate Peanut Butter pie

This is a lighter version but still very enjoyable

Berry Melon Shake

From Juicing for Life

Lower fat garlic hummus

Keep some on hand for a quick, healthy dip to go with 100% whole wheat pita, or veggies. It can also be used to spread on crackers or as a sandwich spread in place of mayonnaise.

Meatless Calico Beans

This is a favorite picnic or pot luck dish.

Brown Rice with Lentils and Tomatoes

Add your favorite seasonings to make it Tex Mex or Mid East. Serve with chicken or fish. We often add an ounce of cheese.

Blueberry Yogurt Smoothie

This is a great way to add some flax seed to your diet.

Curried Chick Peas with Brown Rice and Lentils

Please note that the sodium count is off - when I put this in my "Master Cookbook" program, the other counts are close but the sodium count is 400 mg lower than the SP count.
