In addition to my chicken shawarma, I’ve put together a list of some recipes that would be perfect for Ramadan, with both convenience and nourishment in mind. Hope you enjoy them in good health and with good company.
Start the day off with some eggs plus extra-nourishing ingredients. Prep everything the night before to give yourself more quality family time in the morning.
These dishes keep super well in the fridge, which means you can make them the night before, or any time you have a little extra time and energy. The soups and stews can be entirely made ahead, and the lamb shanks, dolma, and butter beans can all be made up to a certain point, and then finished at the last minute (I’ve included instructions in the notes below each recipe).
a little something sweet
Stuffed dates and baklawa are always classic, but I’ve got a few of my own favorite twists on these staples, plus a qatayef crêpe cake and a halva banana cream pie, for those nights when an extra-special showstopper is in order.
