Polenta “Biscuits” for the Daniel Fast

One of the foods that is often missed on the Daniel Fast is bread and crackers. This recipe for polenta “biscuits” is a nice addition to soups, stews or casseroles. Plus the tofu is rich in protein.

1/2 cup dry polenta

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Salt and pepper

2 12 ounce packages extra-firm tofu, drained.

1 tablespoon olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Combine polenta, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper on a plate. Slice the tofu into 2″ x 2″ squares (approximate). Brush tofu pieces with olive oil and dredge in polenta mixture. Transfer to baking pan lined with parchment paper or sprayed with 100 percent olive oil spray. Bake 30 minutes or until browned. Serve by laying polenta biscuits on top of stew or with soup or casserole.

How about honey and syrup on the Daniel Fast?

Another question I get is about natural sweeteners on the Daniel Fast, including honey and maple syrup.

The Daniel Fast is based on the fasting experiences of the prophet in Daniel 1 and in Daniel 10, along with typical Jewish fasting principles. In Daniel 10:3 we learn this: “I ate no pleasant or desirable food, nor did any meat or wine come into my mouth; and I did not anoint myself at all for the full three weeks.”

From this verse is the boundary on sweeteners. So no sweeteners are allowed on the Daniel Fast, including honey, sugar, agave nectar, cane juice or the like.

Pray about the fast and how the Lord would call you to restrict foods. His guidance should be your final decision.
