Ramadan Meal Plan One


Last week I was telling you all how I like to plan and prepare my Ramadan meals ahead of time so that I can actually focus on what I need to when Ramadan actually gets here. The meal plans that I will be sharing are my actual meals that my family and I will be having. Remember only cook what you all will eat (just like any other normal dinner) unless you want me be eating leftovers forever. Keep it simple and although it is Ramadan, it is still just a meal and you actually will not be as hungry as you may think.

I keep it really simple for suhoor because we’re half asleep at not ever really hungry at the time. For drinks I serve fresh juice and I always make sure to have dates, fresh pita and kiri cheese on the table. My husband loves shakshuka but I make myself oatmeal since the oats are a great source of energy.

When I make Falalfels I like to make a set up on the table with hummus, garlic sauce, tomatoes,  onions and cilantro so we can fill them up with what we like. Also make sure you have fresh pita bread on the table. Of course you need a nice soup recipe during Iftar and this one just happens to be our personal favorite.

Later on in the evening you will want to serve a sweet and tea which always tastes better during Ramadan.

    Salaam sis Noor,

    We had your shrimp soup for Iftar last night. Tested so much like Gumbo. Mashallah, Mashallah. Thank you.

    I am glad that you liked it. I also made it last night my husband wants it every few days lol.

    Salam Noor, Ramadan Kareem to you and your family. Jazakillah khairan for sharing your falafel recipe. My Egyptian husband enjoys our Cape Malay cuisine we have here in Cape Town, South Africa but he’s always craving falafel. I made some for the first time for iftar Saturday night using your recipe and it turned out fabulously – thanks to you! It was not only a hit with Hubz but also with my sisters who are not very adventurous eaters :)

      Wa Alaykum Salam alhumdullah I am so glad that everyone liked them. They are also one of my favorites :) Here in Saudi they put hummus and all kinds of yummies on it.
