Grain Free Tabouli

Do you love the refreshing taste of tabouli, but sometimes want something a little lighter to accompany an already filling meal?  Or maybe you are watching your carbs or eating gluten-free...then this salad is perfect for you!

Authentic Lebanese Baba Ganoush

Authentic Lebanese Baba Ganoush

Ready for a twist on regular hummus? Instead of garbanzo beans, use roasted eggplant and a few extra zesty spices, and you've got Authentic Lebanese Baba Ganoush!
