Dill Fries Daniel Fast Recipe (with homemade ketchup)

Hello blog readers! I have another recipe to share if you or your church started 2016 doing a Daniel fast. I like to share these recipes to encourage you and others who may be on the fence about fasting. Worrying about what to eat on a fast might discourage someone from committing to giving it a try. The rewards are too great to pass it up because of worry. I want you to know you can have (and enjoy) delicious foods. Knowing this allows you to focus more on eating spiritual food while fasting.

Today, I have a recipe for dill fries with homemade ketchup.

Here’s what you need for the fries:

  • 2 Russet Potatoes (if you’re cooking for more than one, cook 2 potatoes for each person)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed

STEPS:
Put potatoes in a pot, cover with water and bring to a boil.
Only boil for 5 minutes!
Drain..let cool for 5 minutes.

Preheat oven at 400

Cut each potato in half (the long way)
Cut each half into 1/4 – 1/2 inch fries (the long way) — this depends on how thick you like them

Spread fries on baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.
Flip them or toss them around to make sure they’re covered  on both sides.

Mix salt, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika in a bowl.
Sprinkle spices on top of fries (both sides).

Bake in oven for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with dill weed.
Add sea salt if you like.

If you want some ketchup with these, you can make your own very easily. Store-bought brands have added sugars and preservatives that don’t work on a Daniel fast. This ketchup is 8-year-old kid and picky eater approved. 🙂

Here’s what you need for the ketchup:

 

  • 1 6 oz can tomato paste
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder

STEPS: 

Mix everything together!
Refrigerate if you like it chilled, or enjoy right away.

I also posted a recipe for hummus that tastes great with these fries. You can find that recipe by clicking here.

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.

 

 

 

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.

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.
