Last week one of our contributors shared his experience breaking his daily Ramadan fast with dates. Ramadan starts in a few days, and preparations are well underway in many kitchens to prepare for the days of fasting that lay ahead. If you’re observing the holiday, you may love the idea of making every dish for suhoor or iftar from scratch, but that’s not always possible. Luckily, the halal-certified offerings from Saffron Road are a shortcut to delicious meals.
Saffron Road successfully captures authentic flavors from around the globe such as dishes from India, Pakistan, Thailand, Korea and Mexico, as well as everyday favorites, including chicken tikka masala, chicken nuggets and halal broths. Their offerings are made with no hydrogenated fats, and no artificial preservatives, colors or flavors. In addition, those with meat are from animals that are raised on vegetarian feed and without antibiotics. Whether you eat halal because of dietary guidelines or you’re simply searching for quick delicious meal options, Saffron Road makes it easy.
We are big fans of Saffron Road’s halal frozen entrées, frozen chicken nuggets, snacks, appetizers, broths, desserts and simmer sauces. Here are just a handful of their offerings to add to your shopping list this Ramadan, or any time of the year:
Chicken Enchiladas Poblano. When time is really tight, freezer meals to the rescue! In this heat-and-eat dish, mildly spicy poblano chiles are the perfect accompaniment to tender dark meat chicken rolled into authentic Yucatecan corn tortillas with spinach and Oaxaca cheese. Mesquite black beans and garlic rice complete the meal.
Low Sodium Traditional Chicken Broth. This rich, flavorful kettle-cooked broth is simmered slowly in halal chicken stock with herbs and vegetables and ready for your favorite sauces, soups and entrées. It is made from chickens that were raised on vegetarian feed and without antibiotics.
Chicken Tenders. Made from family-farmed chickens raised on vegetarian feed and without antibiotics, these are whole-breast strips of chicken carefully prepared in a crispy gluten-free batter. Serve as an entrée, an appetizer or add to a salad.
Lemongrass Basil Simmer Sauce. This Non-GMO Project verified gluten-free simmer sauce is your shortcut to a delicious curry. Or use it as a marinade for veggie skewers.
