Here is a compilation of recipes for suhoor that are nourishing and filling. These will keep the hunger pangs at bay, making you feel energised all day long.
1. Tuna Kabab with Guacamole
These kababs are extremely versatile and could be prepared and frozen in advance. So you will only need to fry them for suhoor. They pair really well with guacamole which adds healthy fats to the meal. You can use this combo for making sandwiches or wraps, or have it on its own.
2. Spelt Flour Spinach Paratha
Easily available by the name ‘Dinkelmehl’ in Germany, spelt flour is lighter on the stomach. The addition of spinach make the parathas soft and delicious. You can semi-cook and freeze these in advance to enjoy at suhoor time without much effort. Follow the post for the detailed instructions.
3. Overnight Muesli
This is one of the constants for me almost every morning for suhoor. I soak small bowls of muesli for everyone for overnight, and we have it along with whatever else we are eating for suhoor. It is an excellent way to have nuts and chia seeds which provide evergy and hydration during the fast.
4. Sweet Potato Shakshuka
Replacing tomatoes in a classic shakshuka with sweet potatoes to make this version. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of energy and fiber. They are not acidic, which is otherwise the case with tomatoes. Combining eggs and sweet potatoes, this dish is delicious and super nutritious.
5. Mung Bean Sprouts Salad
Mung bean sprouts have a number of health benefits. This salad is a good option for those who prefer having a light meal for suhoor. These beans are one of the best plant-based sources of protein. They’re rich in essential amino acids and many other nutrients including magnesium, vitamin B, phosphorus, iron and manganese.
6. Leftovers Frittata
Have way too many leftovers from iftar the previous night? Make this frittata on those days which will clean up your fridge. Nobody has to know that you have used leftovers to make it.
7. Buckwheat Veggie Pancakes with Guacamole
These gluten-free, veggie loaded pancakes, combined with guacamole will keep you satiated for long. You can prepare the batter the previous evening, to save time in the morning for suhoor. Buckwheat flour has a number of health benefits. Read the post for the details.
8. Egg Bhurji (with Paneer)
Who doesn’t like a good egg bhurji (also known as khagina)? I like mine with veggies like cherry tomatoes and spring onion. I love adding crumbled panner into it too, which makes the texture soft and adds to the taste. It also makes the bhurji more filling.
9. Sweet Potato and Spinach Sabzi- 4 Ways
I love food items that are versatile like this sweet potato and spinach sabzi. You can use it for making scrambled eggs, sandwiches, wraps and in salads. Its delicious on it’s own too. No need to mention how nutritious and healthy this sabzi is. I always make it in bulk and use in different ways. You will never get bored of it.
10. Shakshuka Bomb
I always looking for ways to modify the classic shakshuka because as much as I love it, tomatoes do not agree with my stomach, especially when consumed in the morning. This shakshuka, as the name suggests, is a bomb of nutrients as it contains ingredients like purple cabbage, kale and kidney beans. If you aren’t intrigued by the name and ingredients combination yet, I don’t know you.
