Here is a kabob recipe for another Middle Eastern dish. It can be used as an appetizer as well as a meal. Made with ground beef or ground lamb, these football-shaped meatballs can be baked, grilled on a skewer, or fried. They can also be used in place of the lamb chops from the prior recipe. They do not have to be browned if using them in place of lamb. Just place the shaped raw meatball kabobs on top of the vegetables and pour your tomato paste sauce over, and bake for about fifteen minutes instead of thirty minutes as when using the chops.
These meatballs are very versatile. You can make them baked, grilled, or fried and then stuff them into low-carb pita halved and opened. Fill with Arabic salad made with tomatoes, cucumbers, thin slices of red onion, dried mint, olive oil and lemon juice or a little Tahini sauce and the salad.
Tahini Sauce is a clove or two of garlic (depending how much sauce you are making) smashed to a pulp in a little bit of salt. Take a couple of tablespoons of tahini and add white vinegar a little at a time until it makes a sauce. You may add a bit of water to make sauce thinner if it is too thick and does not need any more vinegar.
Shape into football-shaped meatballs. Bake at 350* until browned and done or grill or fry.
This plan works well for using as a hamburger patty. Just shape meat into patties and bake, broil, fry, or grill.
Hope you enjoy this recipe. Mediterranean food often uses rice with meals. What is nice is you can take rice out of the meal, and you now have a low carb meal.
Shish Kabobs made with beef, chicken, or lamb cubes marinated in olive oil and lemon juice, salt, pepper, and allspice are wonderful with roasted vegetables. You can easily do everything on the grill, or baked or broiled.
Eating low carb does not have to be boring. Be adventurous. Try to make your favorite comfort foods or your traditional family meals low-carb without losing the specialness of the meal. You will find you will look forward to your meals and not feel deprived. I hope you will share your favorite low carb recipes with me.
Remember changing your mindset means changing your relationship with food. Healthy eating gives us energy, and preparing a yummy low-carb meal does not mean deprivation. Instead we walk away from a good meal feeling satisfied and not bloated and avoid the sugar spike and drop.
Eating right gives you might.
