This weekend marks the end of Ramadan and the end to the Real Food Ramadan series. Monday will likely be Eid to celebrate the end of the month and the feast at the end of the fast. For most, this usually means food overdose.
But Eid doesn’t need to be a bread and rice overdose (okay, maybe it does. Biryani is definitely happening).
Real Foods can be both satisfying and yummy. For this reason I’ve created the Eid Eats Recipe Round Up to showcase exactly how you can have a real food Eid, complete with a food overdose. It just wouldn’t be Eid without it.
I’ve compiled 20 recipes from around the web as well as from the blog to help you celebrate. The round up is a little heavy on the desserts but it’s Eid after all. At least for me, I’m just making up for missed time with all the salad I’ve been eating.
My Keftedes with Tzatziki are a fun appetizer to have around for kids. Everything is more fun on a stick!
Get your fingers out of the hummus! Make some Herb and Cheese Crackers to go with it.
Although not paleo, one of my favourite sources for authentic Indian and Hyderabadi cuisine is Zaiqa. Her recipe for Chicken Jalfrezi is easily adaptable with the use of ghee or coconut oil in place of canola oil.
Nom Nom Paleo’s recipes never disappoint, especially her Slow Cooker Korean Grass Fed Short Ribs! The Asian pear helps make the meat extremely tender. The best part is that you can make it the night before. It just getting better with time, too!
My mom’s recipe Zafraani Raan is not too bad either. Actually, it’s amazing.
You’ll need a palate cleanser for all this flavourful food. I love this Watermelon Aguas Frescas by Elana’s Pantry. The only thing I do differently is sweeten it with a homemade honey syrup instead of stevia.
Okay, that’s too much healthy. This seriously delicious Carrot Cake by Primal Palate is going to be on my dessert table, no doubt. It does have a lot of eggs in it so maybe it can double as breakfast?
What do you plan on making?
