Low Carb Tabbouleh Tabouli Salad. This finely chopped salad sees its origins in Middle Eastern cuisine. It is still a popular dish in Arab countries today, where you will often see it served as part of a meze. Inevitably, Tabbouleh found its way to Mediterranean countries such as Turkey and Cyprus, before its popularity spread to every Western culture. So how does one create a keto -friendly copy of this beautiful dish, if the star of the show is missing? Hemp seed hearts are my substitution for bulgur. Hemp seeds are extremely low carb, grainy and neutral in flavour. Bulgur aside, Tabbouleh is all about vegetables. So yes there are inevitably a few carbs involved. With the lemon juice and mint leaves adding quite a few. But you get the benefit of good fats from the extra virgin olive oil, and a good amount of healthy protein from the hemp seeds.

Pin it Follow us Tabbouleh aka tabouli is a Middle Eastern vegetarian dish often served as a side. Traditional tabbouleh is made with freshly chopped tomatoes, loads of parsley, mint, heart-healthy extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice and bulgur. What makes my recipe special is that there is are no grains. Instead of the traditionally used bulgur, I made it with cauliflower rice and added some freshly chopped spinach to give this meal an extra potassium boost that means no more keto-flu!

I like the idea of adding spinach to the traditional recipe. I am going to try this tonight.
