Low-Carb Paleo Tabbouleh

Tabbouleh is derived from the Arabic word taabil, which means seasoning. It originates from the mountains of Syria and Lebanon, and it’s one of the most popular dishes in Arab cuisine.

Recipes vary by region, but the basic ingredients — fresh parsley, tomatoes, mint, and cooked bulgur wheat — are simply dressed with olive oil, lemon or lime juice, and salt. Additionally, Tabbouleh is made with cucumbers and/or garlic in some regions.

With so many options, you can mix up a fresh, healthy Low-Carb Paleo Tabbouleh for a light and refreshing side dish next to your favorite grilled meats.

In this twist on traditional Tabbouleh, riced cauliflower stands in for bulgur wheat. This Tabbouleh is a crowd-pleasing dish for potlucks, parties, and barbecues. Best of all, it’s totally free of several common allergens — no grains, no gluten, no dairy, and no nuts!

Be Sure To Use A High Quality Olive Oil!

Of course, high-quality ingredients are the key to fresh, flavorful, healthy foods.
