Recipe Based

  • My Halal Kitchen
  • Yvonne Maffei, who is based in Chicago, is the creator of My Halal Kitchen. It initially began as a website, but she has now taken over Instagram and Pinterest with over 40,000 followers combined, and one million likes on Facebook.

Yvonne’s website is dedicated to recipes she has created, including a lamb and eggplant tagine & a tiramisu without alcohol. With over 45 pages, you’re sure to find a recipe that you like. She has even made multiple categories, to ensure that you can find exactly what you’re looking for.

  • This Girl Bakes

Faatimah is the name of the girl referred to in the title. She splits her recipes into the basic “sweet” and “savoury” categories, but once you click on them, you are met with a plethora of options. For example in the sweet section, you can find chilled desserts, no-bake recipes and Pakistani desserts among others. Faatimah explains her recipes in simple terms and includes pictures of what she did between each instruction, making them incredibly easy to follow.

  • Halal Home Cooking
  • Halal Home Cooking is ran by Umm Hamza and receives almost 75,000 unique monthly visitors on Pinterest. Umm specialises in Algerian and British cuisines - which makes sense given that she was born in Britain but now lives in Algeria. She has been running the site for a long time and has recipes dating back to 2012. Rather than just giving instructions, Umm first tells the story of when she made the food, giving it more of a personal feel.

If by any chance you don’t find a recipe that suits you, you can send an email over suggesting one.

  • Haloodies

Haloodies is a UK-based company that you might have heard of. They are known for selling fresh halal foods in stores such as Asda, Tesco & Sainsbury’s. But what you might not know is that they also have a blog where they upload recipes using their products. For example, if you want to create a “Hot ‘N’ Spicy Wrap Attack”, one of the main ingredients you would need is the Hot ‘N’ Spicy HALOODIES2GO (100% chargrilled chicken breast). So if you love the Haloodies’ products, you’ll definitely love this blog!

  • If you love both travelling and food, Halal Girl About Town is the blog for you! Not only does Halal Girl eview places all over the UK, she reviews eateries abroad too. Clearly she loves her audience as she’s made everything very straightforward by adding a UK and International directory. These directories lists all the places Halal Girl has eaten at, gives an average cost for two people to eat as well as an overall rating out of 10.

She’s also created travel guides to the places she’s visited around the world, where she has large sections assigned to what the food was like in the country.
