Greetings low carb traveler.
Today I’m going to share a very healthy low carb recipe for Tabbouleh, a classic parsley salad.
What is Tabbouleh Salad?
Tabbouleh, or Tabouli Salad is a traditional Mediterranean salad of very finely chopped vegetables, fresh parsley and bulgur wheat, tossed with lemon juice and olive oil. It originated in the mountains of Lebanon in the Middle Ages, and has been a staple of Mediterranean cuisine ever since.
So grab your drum and head back to the Middle Ages with me to make this salad just a little bit healthier.
You may be wondering: Is Tabbouleh Salad Keto?
While it does contain lots of fresh healthy greens, it also contains bulgar wheat which isn’t low carb. Wheat is strictly off limits when you are on the Keto diet. No wiggle room on that count.
But can you make Tabbouleh Salad Keto?
Yes! Yes you can, thank the gods. This recipe for Keto Tabbouleh Salad replaces the bulgar wheat with low carb hemp seeds so it has just 4g net carbs per serving.
How do you make Keto Tabbouleh Salad?
You just mix together: hemp seeds, lemon juice, grape tomatoes, scallions, fresh parsley, fresh mint and extra virgin olive oil. It takes, like, 10 minutes tops.
The best part about this healthy Mediterranean salad is that you can eat it on just about any diet.
Hemp Seed Tabbouleh has a little something for everyone. It's Low Carb, Keto, Vegan, Vegetarian, THM-S, Whole30, Grain Free and Gluten Free. So it's a great way to squeeze some extra vegetables into your diet.
So let’s raise a glass to Keto Tabbouleh.

Thank you for sharing this recipe! I love tabouleh but can't eat bulgar as I'm diabetic. This is perfect for me and it tastes amazing!
I know, I'm diabetic too and I hate having foods that I can't eat anymore. Luckily, there are ways to fake it like this recipe. So glad you like it.

I halved everything for a side dish with salmon and it was perfect.
Oh yum, that sounds delicious. Thanks for letting me know.

So this is perfect for someone who wants a fresh, crunchy side. I love my Mediterranean cuisine but it’s engulfed in carbs so I have to improvise. Let’s just say this was the perfect little improvisation!! Loved it!! 💕
Yay! So glad you liked it.
Tasty! The recipe says yields 3 cups but the nutritional information is per serving. How many servings should I get from the 3 cups?
So glad you like this tabouleh. It's one of my favorite recipes. Each serving size is 1/2 cup. (It's listed down at the bottom in the Nutritional Info.)
It tastes just like regular tabouli. Thanks for posting this!
Sure thing, I make it all the time.
