The former Portsmouth player made his first start in over a month and only his fifth appearance of the season as the improving Toffees held Spurs to a 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane.
Kaboul, who lined-up alongside William Gallas in the heart of defence admitted that a point apiece was probably a fair result.
Leighton Baines gave David Moyes' men the lead with a fine free-kick but Rafael van der Vaart levelled for a share of the spoils.
The 24-year-old told the club's official website: "I was very happy to start the game, even though it was a bit difficult because I hadn't played for a month.
"I thought we did well defensively but we couldn't win. I thought 1-1 was a fair scoreline and now we have to concentrate and focus on the next game.
"They scored a great goal and we're lucky because we came back straight afterwards. That was important.
"We didn't doubt ourselves. We perhaps could have scored a second goal in the second half but we didn't and as I said, 1-1 was a fair result."
