Try it served simply with a smear of Labneh (that you can easily make yourself by following this recipe) or try it with the featured Turmeric Yogurt Sauce recipe for a lovely combination of flavors. A smear of hummus on the serving platter also goes well with these flavors.  You could try making your own home made Low Carb Zucchini Hummus for a delicious combination of flavors. Sliced fresh fennel served as a garnish also really compliments this dish.

How To Serve This Dish

Moroccan and Middle Eastern inspired food is a favorite of mine, so this is just one of many of these themed recipes that I have created. Check out the lovely Low Carb Moroccan Oven Roasted Pumpkin Recipe that would go really well with this dish. I also love to serve Oven Roasted Harissa Beans with this dish for a lovely combination of flavors. Don’t forget the recipe for Low Carb Cauliflower Cous Cous as well.

A couple of delicious main meals that would also be lovely served with this dish includes a recipe for Low Carb Syrian Chicken, as well as a slow cooker recipe for Syrian Lamb and Eggplant Tagine. A combination of some of these dishes would create an absolutely amazing Moroccan themed dinner party, and one that is sugar free and low carb of course.

I hope you get to make some of these delicious dishes and enjoy them a much as I do.
