Low Carb Tabouli

Mezze is a selection of small dishes served in the Middle East and the Balkans as breakfast, lunch or even dinner, with or without drinks. This dish is a refreshing low carb dish packed with fresh veggies. Considering it is void of meat it still presents with decent protein and fibre content. Its low fat but you won’t miss any flavour. Eat it as a side, a lunch main or stuff it in a pita with some shaved ham or pastrami.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
