Ramadan is a time of fasting and reflection. It is a special time of the year when we come together to celebrate our faith and spend time with family and friends. With this Ramadan soup, we want to help you stay healthy.
Soups are a great way to break your fast in the evening, and this Ramadan soup is simple, healthy, and delicious!
Breaking your Fast in a Healthy Way
The Prophet pbuh broke his fast with dates. Typically Muslims will break their fast with dates and water. After this, and before dinner, your stomach is still quite tender from a day of not eating.
Soup is a great way to ease your body back into eating. Not only is soup easy to digest, but it is also an additional way to add hydration to your body. Not only do Muslims refrain from eating, but they also do not drink during the day.
Basics of this Ramadan Soup
The foundation of this soup is a tasty broth, vegetables, and light vermicelli pasta. The broth will hydrate you. The vegetables add good nutrients and fiber. You don’t want to load yourself up with heavy carbs or fried foods right after a long day of fasting.
The pasta adds an easy way to get complex carbohydrates into your meal. Lastly, the lemon adds a level of freshness that is key. Since you are using a lot of quick ingredients, you don’t want the recipe to taste like it just “came from a can.” The lemon juice really brightens it up.
