Get fancy in the kitchen with Ramadan treats from Marks & Spencer

From colourful mezzes to a luxurious lamb shoulder…

Who needs takeout when you can whip up something fancy and delicious without requiring too much effort? Bring family and friends together this Ramadan and tuck into sumptuous iftar and suhoor delicacies from British retailer Marks & Spencer (M&S).

M&S has launched a vast selection of ingredients and ready-to-eat products for all your needs, available in store. Bites include mezze and soups, varieties of hummus, and pre-made cakes. Not only do they offer convenience, but they also taste delicious.

Here are our top picks from the grocery range.


Kickstart the Ramadan celebrations with the brand’s indulgent appetisers, such as delicately spiced Moroccan-style hummus made with sultanas and sweet red onions, the classic hummus, a beautifully mastered recipe resulting in a light and moreish dip, and the red pepper hummus for an irresistible smoky flavour.


M&S soups

Delicious convenience is what M&S does best, and their nutrient-packed soups are not to be missed. Choose from pea and mint to tomato and basil or spicy lentil soup. Then, scoop it with a slice of rosemary and rock salt focaccia, drizzled in golden extra virgin olive oil, or a crispy stone-baked ciabatta.

Ready-to-cook roast

M&S lamb shoulder

Home cooks will also enjoy the extensive range of quality ingredients that make substantial mains that little bit better. Entice the senses with the wafting, tantalising smell of M&S’s succulent lamb shoulder roasting in the oven. Simply season, rest and roast and be rewarded with a remarkable iftar centrepiece.

Serve with a fragrant Basmati rice adorned with chopped dried apricots, pomegranate seeds and sweet caramelised onions for added fibre. If you’re looking for other easy side dishes, try M&S’s wide range of oven chips, from crinkle-cut fries to French fries, or maybe sweet potato and spiced potato wedges.

Dessert treats

M&S baking

All great gatherings need a sweet ending. For home bakers, you can find all your essentials in-store at M&S so that you can treat your guests to a freshly baked carrot cake. Alternatively, if time runs out, remember that M&S has you covered. Choose from their wide range of stunning pre-made cakes, from banana bread to Columbian coffee and walnut cake – nobody will ever know.

The M&S Ramadan ranges are available now across all stores in Saudi Arabia.
