Hummus Daniel Fast Recipe

Hello blog readers! I found another recipe that works if you’re doing a Daniel fast. I cant believe I never knew how super-easy it is to make! It’s homemade hummus — and it tastes so much better than store-bought hummus! Once you gather all your ingredients, you can make it in 10 minutes.

Here’s what you need:

2 tablespoons chopped or minced garlic
2 (15oz) cans of chickpeas  drained, liquid reserved
1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
1/3 cup tahini (sesame paste)
freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons)
4 tablespoons water or liquid from the chickpeas
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional if you like a little spice)

You’ll also need a food processor.

{you might have to get tahini from a specialty store. Walmart didn’t have it, but Publix, Whole Foods, or any Fresh Market type of store probably does. I got it from Rouses}

STEPS:

Put everything into the food processor and process until the hummus is coarsely pureed. Taste for seasoning. Add more salt and/or olive oil depending on your tastes. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

**Optional -Drizzle with olive oil, and garnish with olives, fresh herbs (rosemary is delicious with this!), or red pepper flakes**

This tastes amazing on top of a baked potato! Put a little olive oil, salt, pepper, herbs (rosemary and cilantro are my favorites on this) and hummus on the potato, and enjoy! Breakfast, lunch or dinner!

As you move forward, fasting to God, thank Him for the blessed opportunity to have an intimate relationship with Him — the overseer of your soul!

Remember Paul’s words to the children of God:

Colossians 1:9-12 For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.

PS – I found a very cool app that reads the bible to you. It’s great to listen to after you read a passage to really meditate on it. I play it in the car too. It’s the Redemption app. There are lots of Redemption Church apps. The one I use is pictured below:

Just click on the Bible tab. It pulls up passages for each day, or you can choose which chapters you want to read or listen to.

I pray for a more intimate relationship with Jesus and His Father for each of us!

Ephesians 3:16-19 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge–that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
