Sesame Vegetables with Rice and Tofu
1 Marinated Tofu recipe, marinade reserved
1 TB extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup chopped onions
2 cups chopped broccoli florets, stems removed
1 cup chopped carrots
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tablespoon tahini
1 teaspoon ginger
¼ cup unsweetened pineapple juice or water
1 1/2 cups cooked wild rice
1/4 cup toasted chopped walnuts
1 tsp sesame seeds
Prepare Marinated Tofu, and set aside. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and add onions. Cook until onions are soft and translucent. Add reserved marinade from tofu, broccoli, carrots, garlic, tahini, and ginger. Cook, covered, for 8-10 minutes or until vegetables are tender crisp, stirring frequently. Add pineapple juice, rice and walnuts, and cook until heated through and juice is nearly absorbed. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Stir, and serve.

- Bragg’s Liquid Aminos is an alternative to soy sauce that has no added salt or preservatives. It’s a certified non-GMO (not genetically modified) liquid protein concentrate, derived from healthy soybeans, that contains 16 essential and non-essential amino acids.
- Soy sauce contains wheat (not whole wheat) and sodium benzoate, which is a preservative. Since the goal of the Daniel Fast is to choose foods that God made instead of man-made, chemically processed foods, technically soy sauce is not allowed. However, some people may choose to modify their fast a bit, and that is totally between you and the Lord. Whatever He is leading you to do, do it. If that means eliminating soy sauce for 21 days, great. If not, that’s great, too.
