Tabouli – low carb deliciousness {recipe}

I have been trying to cut out the carbs. It’s been easier than I would have imagined.

I love Greek/Mediterranean food. Hummus, gyro, pita and tabouli, but with these delicious recipes come carbs. boo

Here is a recipe I created that takes all the flavors and textures of tabouli, but without the bulgar wheat AND the carbs. Enjoy!
