Soul Food

In this column, we will provide some info on bread, wine and water and other food choices such as fruit, milk and meats. This will be something you may want to include on the menu to whet everyone’s appetite for those foods essential for perfect and long lasting health.

CAUTION: We will need to issue a caution warning on this label and on the menu. The mere mention of biblical principles that pertain to food and health may cause a few to go into a tizzy. Also, those who may want to repeat some of this info is at risk of being diagnosed with a special label set aside in the DSM-V.

You are about to be served a special treat to satisfy your natural hunger and thirst.

I wrote these articles back in 2002-3 and was critically reviewed and edited by my wife, Annie, and her mother, Gerry. I am currently researching Biblical and Spiritual Significance of Natural Foods and plan to develop a short course on the subject. Maureen Diaz (MotherHenof9 is her handle) is doing something similar that will be produced this year on DVD. We have agreed to trade and compare our work.

You should start the journey by reading Bible Basics: Origin, Purpose and Reliability or go to the front page of The Believers Trumpet for other interesting articles.

Jer 15:16 Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.

  1. St. Patrick’s Day Green Hummus
    Nettles are a traditional Irish green, but they are a bit hard to find. Parsley is also used in traditional recipes such as Leek and Oatmeal Soup. To create a festive green hummus for your St. Patrick’s Day celebration, begin with a recipe for Basic Chickpea Hummus.

    Blend together:

    * 3.5 Cups cooked garbanzo beans (also called chickpeas) (2 – 15 oz. cans)
    * 1-2 large cloves of garlic (to your taste)
    * 1/4 C toasted sesame seeds (or ¼ C – ¾ Cup tahini)
    * 3-6 Tablespoons of Lemon Juice (depending on how thick or thin you like your hummus)


    * ¼ -1/2 Cup minced flat leaf parsley
    * 2 – 4 T minced mint, preferably spearmint Blend until smooth.

    Stir in 1-2 finely chopped green onions. ( If you prefer leeks, feel free to substitute.)

    Serve with pita chips and fresh vegetables. For more traditional Irish fare, serve with carrots and cold potato slices.

    Have fun, be at peace.
