Delicious recipes for Ramadan

In 2023, Ramadan will be observed from the evening of 22 March until sundown on 20 April. We’ve got a range of nourishing recipes from around the world for you to share with family and friends during the holy month.

Choose from energising suhoor options to power you through until the end of the day, and dishes to enjoy at iftar, including snacks, side dishes, salads, main meals, desserts and sweet treats. Iftar often begins with breaking your fast with a date and water. Packed with natural sugar, fibre and nutrients and easy to digest, dates are an ideal choice for quickly refuelling your body, ready to enjoy a celebratory feast with those you love.

Many of these recipes can be prepared in advance and frozen, so you have a variety of deliciously healthy meals that you can then just reheat and eat during the month.
