Houseguests from Islamic country - easy (halal) meal ideas?

lupe1000 | Sep 13, 2011 06:22 AM

Hi, I'm going to have houseguests for a couple of weeks as part of a cultural exchange program with a university. I'll need to make them breakfast and dinner, and send them to the program each day with a packed lunch. My understanding is that they are practicing Muslims and therefore the meals need to be halal.

I work all day, so I'm trying to think of some easy meals (especially dinner) to throw together at night. I don't have access to halal meat, so I think what I'm looking for is some easy vegetarian meals?

Also, I know that pork is off-limits and that other meat, such as beef, chicken, etc., have to be slaughtered in a certain way to be halal, but does the same prohibition apply to fish? Am I okay making meals that include it?

Many thanks!
