5 Easy Recipes That’ll Upgrade Your Solo Iftar


Even though Ramadan is known to bring family and friends together, there are some days when you’re left alone and stuck with the decision to make your own meal. Instead of ordering expensive and unhealthy fast food, break your fast with these five simple recipes that will change the way you see your kitchen.

1. Chicken Stuffed with Tomato and Cheese

There’s nothing better than tasting all your ingredients in every single bite; which is the case with this dish that shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes. This meal will leave you full without draining your energy, so don’t worry about falling asleep and missing suhoor with your friends afterwards.

2. Grandma's Swedish Meatballs

Ever wonder how those IKEA meatballs are made and how come you never have them anywhere else? Well, with this simple recipe you can lay your imagination to rest. This easy take on the Swedish delicacy is guaranteed to have your mouth watering way before the fork gets near your mouth.

Ramadan is usually a good time to work out and get the results you want, especially if your plan is to burn fat. This healthy salad is both filling and delicious, and it’ll only take you between 15 and 20 minutes to make. You’ll get all the proteins and greens your heart desires without sacrificing flavour.

4. The World's Greatest Sandwich

There’s no reason why we can’t imitate foods we see on television. In the movie Spanglish, Adam Sandler makes what he calls ‘The World’s Greatest Sandwich,’ which is basically a BLT with eggs and cheese. This is perfect if you want a quick hassle-free meal you can grab on the go.

5. Egyptian Meatballs

An interesting take on our round kofta just like Teta used to make, this recipe suggests you serve it over couscous with sour cream, but we won’t lecture you on the etiquette of eating foods you already know. You can even put them in a baguette and make your very own meatball sub, who says you can’t?
