Paleo Pomegranate Hemp Grain-Free Tabbouleh
I love the fresh, vibrant flavours of tabbouleh. I’m always sad at a shawarma shop when I can’t eat the tabbouleh because it contains bulgur wheat. This grain-free pomegranate hemp seed tabbouleh is the answer! With hemp seeds replacing bulgur,  this tabbouleh is paleo and whole30 approved, gluten-free and filled with fragrant spices and pomegranate seeds for a bright burst of sweet and sour.

I serve this tabbouleh with my shawarma spiced meatballs and zucchini noodles. The tabbouleh is a great mix-in for raw zucchini noodles and topped with meatballs and store-bought pickled turnip, it’s a super-flavourful and easy dinner that’s easy enough for weeknights or to impress guests.

How to Get the Seeds out a Pomegranate!

Getting the seeds out of a pomegranate can be a messy, hand-staining, clothes destroying job. Always in search of a better way,  I asked the lovely members of the Food Bloggers of Canada for their favourite ways to get those darn seeds out. Check out their 25 Festive Pomegranate Recipes recipe round-up for more pomegranate inspiration!

  • Underwater:
    Check out this video from Karen at Kravings Food Adventures where she handily uses the underwater method that I’m quite fond of.  Denise from UrbnSpice uses the underwater method and includes some super helpful tips for storing and freezing the seeds.
  • Cutting & Peeling:
    Markus from Earth, Food and Fire uses the ingenious mess-free method (!!) of scoring the pomegranate with a knife and peeling it. Check out his post here!
