If your stomach is looking for some keto fabulous Mediterranean foods, then these lamb kebabs and keto cauliflower tabbouleh will definitely fit the bill! I enjoy lamb but it is not always easy to find freshly ground, however usually in the spring time is when many CSA farms will offer the meat or even some butchers around town.
Using fresh and organic meats really makes the meal and you will definitely notice the different in lamb. Fresh lamb is not gamey tasting or too greasy, so be sure to ask your meat provider for the best time to pick some up.
Tabbouleh has a bad rap on the keto circuit because of the added carbs, but it can easily be made keto-friendly with the substitution of cauliflower rice. I will be honest- I am a bit lazy when it comes to using my food processor so I tend to purchase my cauliflower rice from Trader Joes. It is super easy and tasty. I love using cauliflower rice as a replacement in a number of grain side dishes, even mac n cheese!
The lamb kebabs and tabbouleh go super well together and I will often add some yogurt sauce on top or on the side for dipping. Its a delicious family friendly meal that is perfect for an enjoying warm spring evening outside. You can cook the kebabs on the BBQ, grill, or even oven and even with the large list of ingredients its not very time consuming.
With the extra meat, I usually chop up the lamb and add it to the tabbouleh left overs and store in the fridge. The next day I add a touch of olive oil, re-heat and have a tasty lamb lunch bowl.
