Aegean cui­sine for a healthy Ra­madan menu

Daily Sabah (Turkey) - - Lifestyle -

HEALTH ex­perts agree that a lighter menu in if­tar, the fast-breaking din­ner, and sahur, the pre-dawn meal, can help pre­vent health prob­lems dur­ing the month of Ra­madan, the Mus­lim month of fast­ing.

Known for its light­ness, Aegean cui­sine can be the best choice for Ra­madan meals, es­pe­cially in sum­mer when longer days mean long hours of fast­ing.

Stuffed veg­eta­bles with olive oil, ar­ti­choke, veg­etable patty and stuffed squash blos­soms, are few Aegean dishes that can make a lighter Ra­madan meal com­plete.

Chef Se­men Öner said that the Aegean cui­sine is one of the health­i­est cuisines in the world be­cause of its use of olive oil as the main in­gre­di­ent. He said that fresh veg­eta­bles cooked with olive oil are the health­i­est and light­est menu for Ra­madan ta­bles.

“Fresh Aegean veg­eta­bles can also be cooked with minced meat and pota­toes. These veg­eta­bles can also be cooked with egg,” said Öner.
