Coconut Curry Soup Daniel Fast Recipe

Hello blog readers! I hope your 2016 is off to an amazing start. If you started the year doing a Daniel fast, I have a recipe that you might like. It’s a little spicy, but if you don’t like heat, you can leave out the red pepper. It’s coconut curry soup, and very easy to make.

Here’s what you need:

  • tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 (13.5oz) can coconut milk (regular or lite)
  • chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 2tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

STEPS:

Mix coconut milk, soy sauce and salt in a small bowl.

Place a different pot over medium heat.
Add olive oil, crushed red pepper,  curry powder, and garlic.
Cook until it makes a nice fragrance (about 20 seconds)
Add coconut milk mixture, and lemon zest
Bring to a boil
Reduce heat to low
Add fresh chopped basil leaves
Let flavors simmer for 5 minutes

You can eat the soup by itself, or over whole grain brown rice!

I post these recipes for those doing the Daniel fast — but mainly for those who are afraid to give fasting a try. Fear of not knowing what we’re able to eat can cause us to avoid fasting. If your goal is to grow deeper in relationship with God, fasting is a way that can help you. And there are foods and meals that taste great that you are allowed to have. Read up on spiritual fasting before you start a fast. Prepare your meals, or have a list of recipes ready for each day before you start. That might help you. And, don’t harm your body by not taking in any nutrients. He’s a good Father, and will never require you to starve yourself in a harmful way to be closer to Him.

I pray these recipes help you!

As you move forward fasting to God, I encourage you to meditate on His word daily.

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.
