How To Make Cauliflower Tabbouleh

 


Traditional tabbouleh is made with fresh herbs, cooked grains, a healthy dose of olive oil and lemon juice, then seasoned with salt and pepper. This keto version keeps all of the bright and herbaceous flavor but uses grated or “riced” cauliflower to keep the carbs low and the fiber high. I also added some fun flavors and textures to bump of the fat without meat or dairy by utilizing creamy hunks of avocado and salty Kalamata olives that give it that perfect balance of crunchy, salty and savory.



THE PREPARATION

 

1 1/2 cups riced cauliflower

1/4 cup chopped red onion

1/4 cup diced red bell pepper

1/2 cup diced cucumber

12 large Kalamata Olives

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/4 cup olive oil

Salt and Pepper, to taste

1 cup chopped parsley

1 cup chopped mint leaves

1/2 medium avocado, diced

1 ounce slivered almonds

 

THE EXECUTION

 

1. In a large bowl, combine the riced cauliflower, red onion, bell pepper, cucumber,  and Kalamata olives.

 

2. Drizzle the veggies in the lemon juice and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper then stir to coat.

 

3. Fold in chopped parsley and mint.

 

4. Add diced avocado to the bowl and gently mix in.

 

5. Top with slivered almonds. Serve chilled.
