Recipe Notes

  • For a chunkier soup with a little more texture, place half in a food processor or blender.
  • Substitute black-eyed peas with great northern beans, cannellini beans, or navy beans.

    We’ve made a family affair of changing our lifestyle so the Daniel’s Fast recipes are a God-send. I made this soup for my Dad for Father’s Day. I added kale, a bay leaf, and lentils to thicken. I omitted Cayenne pepper and parsley. It’s delicious!

    My second year on the Daniel Fast using Kristen’s recipes. First time cooking the black-eye pea soup. I took Kristen’s advice and added the cannelli beans instead of substituting black-eye peas. It thickened the soup. Delicious.

  3. My husband has a painful reaction to onions (Its a challenge EVERY recipe has onions right) so I substitute onion powder instead. Would that work in your soup and main dish recipes?
