Suhoor Meal Ideas

Suhoor Meal Ideas

Suhoor is the Arabic term referring to the pre-dawn meal consumed by Muslims before fasting, usually during the month of Ramadan.

With Ramadan at our doorstep, we should be planning a healthy and nutritious meal plan for our families. By planning and preparing from beforehand, this will allow you more time for prayer. These are some ideas for Suhoor, which are quick and easy to make, and can be prepped from the night before.

I have prepared most of my Iftar meals as well, to allow for a peaceful and stress-free Ramadan. My family prefers to eat quite healthy during Ramadan, which means fewer carbs and less fried and greasy foods. Follow my feed on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for delicious and clever ideas this Ramadan.


I prefer to have a smoothie at suhoor as it consists of all the nutrition that I need to stay full for the day ahead. Check out My Top 10 Smoothies for some healthy inspiration.



If your family prefers eggs at Suhoor, omelettes and fritattas are great options. You could chop up your ingredients the day before, whisk your eggs the night before, and put it together in the morning. Check out the recipes for Salami and Cream Cheese Fritatta  and Indian Style One Pan Eggs

If you prefer a lighter Suhoor, these Gluten Free Rusks are delicious with a mug of your favourite tea or coffee.



Something for the kids, these Churro French Toasts, Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes and French Toast Cigars are divine and so simple to make, if you prefer something sweeter at Suhoor.

Muffins are also great at Suhoor, you can add chia seeds, fruits and bran to make it nutritious and filling. Check out the recipes for my Bran Flakes Mufffins and Avocado Muffins.



For something a little more filling, the Avocado Smoothie Bowl is the way to go. Packed full of superfoods, this is sure to keep you feeling energetic all day.

Strata, breakfast casserole, savoury french toast bake or bread pudding. It doesn’t matter what you call this, it’s totally delish, it’s something a little different and requires just a few ingredients. It tastes like a cross between a quiche, french toast and an omelette! Full recipe below….Enjoy !

Breakfast Strata

I don’t need to describe to you how easy this is to make. You can see for yourself. Just bread (preferably stale), eggs, milk, salami and cheese. Leave it to soak at least 30 minutes, or overnight, pour into a dish and bake. That’s it!

Ingredients :

  • 6 slices Albany Multigrain Ultima bread, cut into small cubes
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped salami
  • Chopped coriander
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions :

Heat a large non stick pan over high heat. Add a little oil. Add all the salami and cook until lightly browned. Remove from the fry pan and drain on a paper towel.
Whisk the eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a bowl.
Place the bread in a large ziplock bag. Pour in the egg mixture, 1/2 cup cheese and salami.
Seal and massage the egg into the cubes. Set aside in the fridge for at least 30 minutes (until all the egg is soaked into the bread) or overnight.
When ready to cook:
Preheat oven to 180C.
Spray a rectangular dish with olive oil. Pour the bread mixture into the dish, pat down to compress and scatter the remaining ½ cup cheese. Cover loosely with foil.
Bake for 15 minutes, then remove the lid and bake for a further 5-10 minutes until bubbly and golden on top.
