Re: Easy to make recipes to break fast with

I am listening to Outlook on the BBC World Service.
Two American guys are trying to visit a different mosque in a different US state each day and are finding it quite a tasty experience. Each local mosque has locals jockeying for position to have the travellers eat with them. So they are experiencing a different local speciality each day at sundown.
They said that they are getting biryani if they stay with Patistanis, Banana dishes when they stay with Somalis.
The first day they started in Anchorage, Alaska and as guests were treated to loads of smoked salmon for free. The 'only' drawback being they have to wait till very late as summer days at the moment are 20 hours long!! So they were discussing following a standard time of day (incl Saudi time) for each place to avoid too much undue 'suffering'.

It is also some of the longest fasts I've had to do. 03h30 until 21h08 So by the end my energy will be very down. Thanks to my Mother and and more recently Wife who would never complain about their lack of energy when cooking lovely things for me

So I'm looking for easy, quick, nutritious and most importantly delicious recipes for me to, or attempt to, cook during this most blessed of months...well until my Wife is back at least


Polenta Ticinese, is probably the nicest fast food I can think of.

Boil water. Open sachet and stir in the polenta. Wait 2 Minutes. Add butter. Done.


You can also add some cheese, bacon, mushrooms...

The package looks like this, and is sold at Coop:






Tortellini with Pesto sauce

Boil salted/bouillon water. Add tortellin. After some minutes drain, and add the pesto sauce.

Tortellini with just a knob of melted butter also taste fine.

(Migros sells the tortellini and sauces in the fridge section.)


Croque Monsieur:

Toast two slices of toast bread. Butter each side. Put a slice of ham in between. Put on a baking tray. Sprinkle some cheese on top. Bake/Grill for some minutes.





Hope you will survive?

Re: Easy to make recipes to break fast with

Adding on the porridge suggestions: if you get organic, steel cut oats and soak them in water or milk for 5-6 hours (store in the fridge), you just have to warm them 2 mins in the microwave, add some nuts, chocolate or other topping and you're good to go.

When I need a fast nutritious meal I normally do eggs: either omelette on their own (you can add potatoes or onions to mix up flavours), or beaten, mixed with veggies and placed in the oven for 10 mins at 220 degrees: they become fluffy and delicious. Pasta is another fast option. If you boil one cut up potato and some green beans with noodles, and mix everything with ready made pesto, you get a more filling and varied meal.
Hope it helps.

That instant stuff is pretty gross.

Real polenta takes an hour, but is FAR better.

My nonna would agree with you...her veggie polenta was legendary in the sottoceneri

But, for a 2 minute fast food, I think it is pretty delish. Have you tried the one from Coop yet which I showed in the picture above?

Yes, my kids like it.

I find it awful!

With a copper pot and an electric motor stirrer, even good polenta is easy to make!

Re: Easy to make recipes to break fast with

Scrambled eggs, omellete, "bulls eye" egg are the easy ones, but if you want some more energy do this
1. Beat 2 large eggs, and a cup of milk and 8 teaspoons of sugar, beat some more
2. Soak bread in it, and shallow fry the bread for 1-2 minutes

This mixture will soak 4 bread pieces with ease, and eating 4 of those will keep you fill for a long time.

Re: Easy to make recipes to break fast with

An oriental take on the classic oatmeal. I often have it for breakfast.

Boil water in a pot, add some curcuma, ginger, cinnamon, several tablespoons of oats. Let it simmer for 20-25 minutes, then add a teaspoon of salt and some dried fruit (apricots, cranberries) and nuts or almonds if you like. Squeeze in a teaspoon of lemon juice. Remove the pot from the heat and after a short while add a tablespoon of honey. Very filling and delicious.

Re: Easy to make recipes to break fast with

Ramadan Mubarak!

You can try to have healthy breakfast with varieties like
1. start with fruits (apples,oranges any fruits or any fruit juices)
2. Two to three ready made rotis/bread/parathas which is available (in asian stores and you can stock them for couple of weeks) you can have with egg omelets or veg/non-veg gravy (which you can prepare n freeze it for couple of days)
3. some dates and almonds.

you can also have oats/Rice alternatively.

Thanks
Swath

I'd recommend porridge (I've just talked about it with a friend 2 hours ago!). I don't really like it but it has a low glycemic index and will keep you going for a while.

Or maybe Oat Meal with honey and banana slices on top. That's tasty

Re: Easy to make recipes to break fast with

I made some falafel and hummus last night. Twas devine

These packets of falafel mixture you can get at the turkish shops here are very simple and tasty. Hummus of course is very easy to make anyway.
