Your Ultimate Guide to a Vegetarian Ramadan

Go lean and green this month

We’re well into the first week of Ramadan, the holy month that seeks to help us reset, recalibrate and take on some new habits on our journey towards rekindling with our faith. 

Chances are, you’re already eating less probably better too. So why not take it the next level and take meat out of your daily diet too. After all, our regional cuisines tend to be heavy on the animal product—and cutting them out comes with health benefits. Among them are a reduced risk of cancer, diabetes and blood pressure. Not to worry, a vegetarian diet will still provide you with the right nutrients you need to make it through your days of fasting.

Trying to dive into the world of vegetarianism and don’t know where to start? Here’s some accounts that will help you chef up some tasty meals for Iftar. 

La Cuisine de Souad

La cuisine de Souad is based in Paris and offers a menu of Moroccan food but vegetarian. The initiative was built by two siblings Tarek and Leila Idrissi who also often offer help to less-privileged communities living in the French capital. 

One Arab Vegan

The name of the account is quite self-explanatory. Nada is vegan and is based in Abu Dhabi. Her recipes are followed by 20 thousand people that seem to be fans of the UAE-based cook’s recipes. 

Vegetarian in Amman

If you’re living in Jordan, this one’s for you. The account compiles and reviews all the vegetarian options available around the Hashemite kingdom’s restaurants and food hotspots. 

Vegetarian Heaven

This account doesn’t come from the region but definitely worth the detour. It’s a real well of delicious recipes and mouthwatering dishes for you to try whenever you feel like swapping meat for some vegetables and green proteins.
