Iftaar Menu Ideas

As a Muslim I really look forward to the Holy Month of Ramadan where we fast the whole month from just before sunrise until the sun sets. No food or water is ingested throughout the whole day, so we must have a healthy suhoor (pre-fasting meal) and our iftaar (meal at the time of breaking the fast) must be light enough so that we can continue our prayers and worship through the night.

Here is one menu idea for an iftaar that I would like to share with you:

At the time of breaking the fast:

  • Water
  • Saudi dates
  • peach smoothie

After the maghrib salah (sunset prayer):

  • Yellow lentil soup  (I always serve soups since they warm and ease the stomach out of the fast and into eating again)
  • Super-moist turkey meatloaf
  • Creamed mashed potatoes
  • Green salad with red onions, tomatoes, lemon juice, olive oil and salt


  • Assorted fruit
  • light yogurt cake

This is simply one menu idea you can use to expound on, Insh’allah more to come. Remember, in Ramadan the point is not to eat to your fill but to eat to have enough energy to perform the daily salah, the extra ibadat and to simply give you the energy for all the other things you have to do in your day and evening.
