A couple of extra yummy ideas for our before fast meal.
Tomatoes and flat bread
A personal favorite with my son and crazily easy.
Simply fry chopped onion with 3-4 cloves of crushed garlic.
Add chopped tomatoes ( now this can be tomatoes you have chopped or a tin of chopped tomatoes - however if you use a tin it tends to be more liquidy)
Add oregano and basil for a Mediterranean feel or Arabic mixed spices for an Arabian feel or even a bit of curry or garam Masala. Serve with piping hot flat bread.. Absolutely scrummy!!!!
Potatoes and egg
This one is really great if you r forgetting the old carb free diet ( which we all kinda do during Ramadan lol!!)
Fry 3-4 potatoes which have been cut into small cubes. When the potato is cooked and golden and crunchy on the outside then add 3-4 lightly beaten eggs and heat further until the eggs are cooked through. And serve with flat bread.
This is probably spelt wrong lol. But you'd be a fool not to try it lol. Its the easiest recipe. All you need is a tin of broad beans , some chilies and a little olive oil and you have a great healthy start to your day whether fasting or simply wanting a high protean start.
First you pour the tin of broad beans into the pan keeping back a third of the liquid . Boil the beans until they break down into a slightly mushy mixture don't be put off by this it does taste nice!). Add salt to taste. meanwhile finely chop the chili and add it to the olive oil. When the beans are cooked mash them ever so slightly with a pestle and then add your extra liquid and mix a little. Drizzle the chili olive oil mix over the paste and serve with , yes you guessed it flat bread.
Three really fast breakfasts which are both filling and fun to eat. These are morning meals my extended family here in Jordan eat on a daily basis. And the bonus is they keep you full for a long time.
