Ramadan Day 6+7 - Tashrib & Sweet Bites

Last Ramadan I promised I would post every single day, however, that promise was not kept since a lot of things got in the way. To keep this promise,  I've decided to continue from last year. Starting with what we had to eat for day 6 and 7. 

During these two days we decided to have tashrib, which is a tomato sauce with chicken and bread. The bread I'm using is homemade and you can find the recipe here. For dessert I made sweet bites, which is a traditional Middle Eastern dessert also known as legamat or awamat. It's mostly served during Ramadan.

Nutella & Banana Pastries

Over the weekend I was browsing through Pinterest and stumbled upon some pastries with nutella and bananas. They looked really delicious, so I decided to give it a go and I must say, they're just as good as they look!

Date Cake With Caramel Sauce

Coming from a Middle Eastern culture dates are really important (and delicious.) It's used in many dishes, but it's also good as a simple snack. 

About a year ago I discovered a date cake recipe - and it's delicious! The cake is really moist and the caramel sauce together with the dates make it a perfect combo.

Ramadan Day 4 - Grilled Shrimps & Chickpea Salad (Fattah)

It's been a while since I've made grilled shrimps and it certainly is a favorite here at home, therefore I found it most appropriate to make them today - with a side chickpea salad.

Ramadan Day 2+3 - Homemade Bread, Pizza & Oreo Cupcakes

For day 2+3 we ate some leftovers, but I also added some homemade bread, pizza and a delicious and simple dessert. The homemade bread is a must in my family and I make it every Ramadan - it's really good!



I've already posted how to make the dough for the pizza here. You can add whatever topping you like, I've used pepperoni, tomatoes, olives, oregano and Havarti cheese.

Ramadan Day One - Kebab, Fatoosh & Lentil Soup

I've been working on a Ramadan project - hoping to post ideas every day (Inshallah,) as it would be great for those who end up having absolutely no idea on what to cook.

For the first day I like to start out simple, therefore I decided to serve kebab, fatoosh and lentil soup for my family. Lentil soup is something that I serve almost every day, since it's really good to break the long fast with a soup.

Baklava


Baklava is a must in many Middle Eastern families and it sure is delicious. Usually it is bought from the bakery, but it tastes even better homemade! This time, I cheated a little bit and bought the puff pastry pre-made.
