5 Ramadan recipes for celebrating the Holy Month
Get iftar ready with our selection of quick and easy Ramadan recipes. Whether you’re fasting during the Holy Month or simply want to spend this special time exploring delicious Middle Eastern flavours, our easy Ramadan recipes are the answer.
During the Holy Month, muslims across the world abstain from food and water between dawn and dusk in line with the five pillars of Islam. This is known as fasting. When the sun sets, fast is broken with a meal known as iftar – often shared with family and friends. Iftars can vary from lavish spreads at hotel buffets to close-knit get-togethers at home with loved ones.
However you’re celebrating, enjoy Middle Eastern flavours with our easy-to-cook meal boxes, delivering Ramadan-inspired recipes to your door throughout the Holy Month. Here are some of the dishes available to order over the coming weeks…
Herby Tahini and Pomegranate Salmon with Glazed Carrots
A real show-stopper that deserves to feature as the centerpiece of your next iftar. Top baked salmon fillets with a regal, Middle Eastern topping and serve alongside these sweetened carrots to impress guests with a light and delicious Ramadan meal.
Daoud Basha Lebanese Meatballs in Tomato Sauce
Daoud basha is a classic Lebanese dish consisting of meatballs in a rich tomato sauce, and our version features a mixture of basmati rice with crispy vermicelli noodles. It’s famously named after King Daoud Basha, who was a huge fan of the dish!
