Suhoor Recipe Roundup
The suhoor meal is such an important one to have because it can really make or break the experience you have on the fasting day. If it’s a good suhoor, you’ll feel energized and ready to tackle the day; if not, it can leave you drained and exhausted, unable to do the things you need to do to keep your household running.
Spinach, Strawberry & Mango Smoothie. Sometimes you just want a thick and energizing drink instead of eating much food at suhoor. If that’s the case, this is one you don’t want to pass up any time soon, as the ingredients go surprisingly well together.

Chicken Sausages with Heirloom Tomatoes. Chicken is light enough to have at suhoor, if you’re in the mood for some serious protein. You can also do this with beef or lamb. Get the recipe here.
Baked Phyllo Shells with Scrambled Eggs. I love this recipe because they’re fun and bite-size, which means you will mostly likely have a small portion of them and still feel satisfied. Get the recipe here.
Homemade Chappati. I’m a huge fan of homemade breads. You know exactly what’s in them and when you get the hang of a certain recipe, it becomes something you can do with your eyes closed. Try this one, it’s delicious and really straightforward and you can make great wraps with them! Get the recipe here.
Breakfast Eggs with Sejouk. I love eggs any time of day, but I feel they give me quite the boost when I have them at suhoor, since they’re a great source of protein. To jazz them up a bit, sometimes I add that semi-spicy Sejouk, or Turkish sausage similar to what a Mexican chorizo is like. This recipe is for one, but so easy to double, triple, etc. Get the recipe here.
Savory Spinach Pie: I can’t express how much I love this, as I could eat it any time of day or night. My best friend who is from Turkey taught me her version and my cousin who is half Greek taught me her grandmother’s version. I combined the two ways and came up with this, which I just love so much and find it to be perfect for suhoor. Get the recipe here.
Parmesan & Feta Quiche. More evidence of my love of eggs, this quiche is like a fluffy egg pie. I just used whatever I had leftover in the fridge, which was quite a bit of cheese, but you can add whatever you like. Choose light ingredients, however, as anything heavier will affect the cooking time. Fresh spinach, chives or something similar would be good substitutes. Get the recipe here.
Stuffed Figs with Yogurt Cheese, Honey & Almonds. On the lighter side of suhoor sits fruits, yogurt and honey and I love these. If you can find some really fresh figs, go for it completely; if not try dates or even other fruits like pears, peaches or apples. The combination is so very good. Get the recipe here.
Chicken Pot Pie in Phyllo Dough. This is what I call the leftover suhoor recipe. I would probably start out making it for Iftar and then have some for suhoor because it’s light enough and not spicy, oily or heavy in any way. The protein, however, really helps me get through the fasting day. Get the Whole Tied Chicken by Zabiha Halal, boil it or roast it and then pull it apart to use in this recipe. Get the recipe here.
Buttermilk Pancakes with Orange Zest. For the real breakfast experience, there must be pancakes of some sort, right? I love these so much because of the orange zest that gives it all that zing. These are spongy, not fluffy pancakes so if you like that style, this is yours to make. Get the recipe here.
