Kebab plate with Faux-lafal & Faux-bouleh

A favourite meal out for us is a trip to the Kebab Shop.  In the past I have enjoyed Tabouleh and Felafal as part of my choices but since adopting the LCHF way of eating I have moved towards a combination salad plate topped with sour cream and garlic yoghurt… and no Felafal or Tabouleh….. and I have missed them both.  Recently I came an LCHF recipe for Faux-lafal and decided to make a meal of it.

Kebab Salad Plates

The general base for the salad plate had

  • Salad leaves – torn up
  • Fresh herbs – mint, corriander & basil
  • Coleslaw with aioli dressing
  • Grated Cheese
  • Faux-bouleh (Recipe Below)

The basic salad was then personalised with selections from

  • Capsicum
  • Diced Tomato
  • Avocado
  • Red Onion

Finally, the plates were topped with the Faux-lafal (recipe Below) and choice of sauces


  • ½ Cup coarsley chopped raw cauliflower
  • ½ Cup Chopped Parsley
  • 1 clove minced Garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon Chopped Onion
  • 1 Tablespoon Chopped Capsicum
  • 1 Tablespoon Dressing – I used a balsamic
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Mix together and set aside


  • 1 cup coarsley chopped raw Cauliflower
  • ½ cup coarsley chopped Almonds
  • 2 cloves minced Garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon ground Cumin
  • ½ Tablespoon ground Coriander
  • Pinch of Chilli Powder (to taste)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh Parsley
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons Coconut Flour
  • Generous Grinds of Salt & Pepper

Mix together & set aside while you prepare a salad plate for each person

Put large frypan on to heat with

  • 1 Tablespoon Coconut oil and
  • 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
  1. Divide Faulefal mix into 8 portions
  2. Roll into balls and flatten to about 1cm
  3. Fry in the oil for about 4 mins before turining to cook the other side for another 4 mins – DO NOT TRY AND TURN TO SOON OR THEY WILL BREAK
  4. Place Faux-lefal onto salad, top with choice of sauce…. and enjoy.


We ate the whole mix between two of us but in all reality these are very filling and would have been enough for four people.

This recipe calls for a few coarsley chopped ingredients – you could use your food processor for this or, as it is only a small amount, I chose to use my Tupperware chopper – it only took a couple of minutes and was easy on the cleanup.
