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 and probably better too. So why not take it to the next level and remove meat from your daily diet as well? After all, our regional cuisines tend to be heavy on animal products, and cutting them out comes with a myriad of health benefits including a reduced risk of cancer, diabetes, and high blood pressure. But don’t worry, a vegetarian regime will still provide you with just 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? Below, four accounts that will help you chef up some tasty meatless meals for Iftar. 

La Cuisine de Souad

La Cuisine de Souad is based in Paris and offers a menu of Moroccan food but with vegetarian twist. The initiative was built by two siblings, namely Tarek and Leila Idrissi, who are regularly seen offering their help to the 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, and her recipes, followed by over 20,000 people, are a hit in the entire Gulf State. 

Vegetarian in Amman

If you’re living in Jordan, this one’s for you as this account compiles and reviews all of the vegetarian options available around the Hashemite kingdom’s restaurants and local eateries. 

Vegetarian Heaven

This account doesn’t come from the region but is still definitely worth the detour as 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.
