This year, being able to observe Ramadhan whilst staying and working from home is a huge blessing for me when it comes to time and convenience so there is absolutely no way I will be spending all that free time in the kitchen.
So, in the spirit of getting things done quickly and easily, Every week, I will be sharing two quick and easy meals that can be had for Iftaar and Suhoor. I am not a skilled cook at all, and although these meals were initially stumbled upon due to trial and error, they are absolute bangers! (If I do say so myself)

The first time I ever tried Tomato Soup in my entire life was last year when my son had these really horrible mouth ulcers that made eating really agonising for him. And if you know anything about my son, it is his LOVE for food! Bless him, he was heartbroken that he couldn’t eat all the yummy meals mummy was making 😦
Anyway, out of desperation, I bought a can of tomato soup that I had spent years maligning and wondering how anyone could stomach “bland and boring tomato soup”. I took a spoonful to test the temperature before feeding it to my son, and let’s just say I haven’t looked back since!
Soups are healthy, delicious and most importantly; FILLING! You don’t have to have only soup for Iftaar, but it’s a good place to start. There are loads of recipes on the internet should you want to try your hands on it!
My Star Rating :
The name is pretty self explanatory: Plain yoghurt topped with anything you desire! I tend to add fruits, nuts and seeds to mine for some added crunch and bite. If you like you can drizzle some honey on this as well. This is one of my absolute go-to for Suhoor, and they are usually ready in less than 5 minutes. I know this might seem like bird-food to some (considering you won’t be eating anything else till sunset) but I am usually a bit bloated and full from the Iftaar I had the night before anyway so I tend to go for something light at this time.
What do you like to have for your Iftaar and Suhoor? I’d love to hear from you!
*Iftaar is the meal that Muslims break their fast with at Sunset during the month of Ramadhan
*Suhoor Is the first meal of the day to begin the fast and it is eaten before dawn breaks.
