A leisurely Iftar doesn’t require hours of preparation and exhausting tasks. With the help of the following tips and tricks, you’ll learn how to build your Iftar table step by step, and in less than an hour! Everything will be entirely ready by the time your guests show up.  


1. Explore the freezer

You must make use of the frozen dishes you had prepared in advance, and you should always start with meals that need most cooking time. So take out those kibbeh balls, cheese rolls, and samosas, and start cooking them in hot oil until golden. Meanwhile, pop a kibbeh pan in the oven until it’s nice and golden.

2. Prepare ready to eat meals

Ready-to-eat appetizers save time and effort while providing exceptional flavors. Start by unpacking California Garden Hummus and vine leaves and lay them nicely in serving plates. 

Lastly, it shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes to create a mouthwatering fatteh; deep-fry bread and eggplant cubes. Meanwhile, heat California Garden Chickpeas for 5 minutes and prepare a quick tahini-yogurt sauce. It’s the most effort you’ll have to make while setting up your table!

3. Let the kids help

Kids can help you tremendously while preparing Iftar. Have them help you with simple tasks around the kitchen, such as layering cold appetizers and preparing salads depending on their age. They can also help set the table while you create beautiful presentations out of the hot treats you just made. All in less than one hour! Ramadan Kareem!
