Eid Eats Recipe Round Up

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.


I’m going to be starting food prep with these Sunbutter Brownies from Elana’s Pantry. I always make brownies for the dessert table and this recipe is simple (and delicious!) enough to throw together.

I love having appetizers on Eid day to take the pressure of serving dinner on time. Nom Nom Paleo’s Spicy Salmon Cucumber Bites use everyday ingredients and are totally addictive.

My Keftedes with Tzatziki are a fun appetizer to have around for kids. Everything is more fun on a stick!


This Chimichurri from The Clothes Make the Girl is one of the easiest and tastiest ones I’ve made yet. I’ll be serving it with thin strips of grilled chicken as an appetizer.

These Korean Beef Wrapped Asparagus from Against All Grain will have everyone eating their vegetables.

Since ice cream is a basic human right you have to make this Olive Oil Ice Cream from The Paleo Mom. It’s insane.

So is this gorgeous Turkish Delight Panna Cotta by Cinnamon Eats. This is a new-to-me blog and I’ve really been enjoying looking through her recipes.

I really miss hummus so when I found this recipe for Artichoke Hummus at My Heart Beets my hummus grievances were finally over.

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.

For those of you that are okay with tapioca flour, this recipe for Paleo Tortillas by Paleo Cupboard looks like the real deal and would be excellent to soak up all that spicy sauce.

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!

Oh She Glows’ Detox Tabbouleh will help you feel a little better from eating all the dessert. I love the idea of using riced cauliflower as a bulgur substitute.

My mom’s recipe Zafraani Raan is not too bad either. Actually, it’s amazing.


How about some Cauliflower Rice from The Primal Palate to go with the Chicken Jalfrezi and Zafraani Raan?

Or some of The Domestic Man’s Chicken Panang Curry to go with that cauliflower rice? Check out his Chicken Nugget recipe for another day!

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?

I can never pass up a lemon bar, like these Luscious Lemon Bars by Against All Grain. Lemon is a fruit…

Urban Poser’s Homemade Marshmallows would be a great way to end the night in front of a bonfire. Her recipes are insane and I can’t wait for her cookbook to come out!

What do you plan on making?
