7 soups for Ramadan you can make in under 1 hour

Delicious home-cooked meals don't necessarily take a long time to prepare. Especially when it comes to soups! This makes them great for Ramadan as they allow you to spend less time cooking and more time focusing on the important things: spending time with your family as well as self-reflection, prayer, connecting with God and your community, and doing good deeds. Read on to learn more about some delicious and easy soups for Ramadan we suggest you explore during this special time of year.

Fuss-free, quick and easy Ramadan soups

Soups are great for Ramadan because they make for a light meal. This also means Ramadan soups are great for breaking fast at iftar as they don't overwhelm you after a day of abstaining from food and drink. You can choose to drink it, carefully, to get warmth slowly after a long day of fasting. These comforting dishes will warm your stomach, preparing you for the other iftar dishes to come.

Fortunately, our Ramadan soups are incredibly easy to make as they do not need to boil for hours on end to bring forth the incredible flavours of the chopped ingredients. All our easy Ramadan soup recipes can be made in under 1 hour and since many feature pre-made sauces or dairy products like cream and cheese, you don't need to worry about thickening them.

Since our recipes are simple and easy to follow, you can get younger family members, or those who don't have much cooking experience, to help in the kitchen. This way you can spend precious time together as a family during Ramadan and still have a lot of time together out of the kitchen, too. Involving everyone in the cooking process of making an easy Ramadan soup also makes it easier for everyone to truly appreciate these home-cooked meals.
