Fave recipes

I’ve been on Dukan for what feels like ages.  A lot of my friends seem to be at or approaching Consolidation, but at the time of writing this page, I’m still just past the halfway post.  I sometimes forget that I’ve learned a whole heap of recipes on this diet, so I’m going to use this page to consolidate all the recipes that I’ve tried or that I want to try.  Feel free to help out by leaving links to (or indeed full versions of) your favourite Dukan recipes in the comments!

I’ll own up to this: most of these recipes, I’ve swiped from elsewhere.  Some are direct links to the pages from which I swiped them, but most are linking to my Google docs recipe book (where hopefully I’ve remembered to link to the person I swiped from – if anyone stumbles over something that was originally theirs and I’ve not cited a link, please let me know!)



Things I want to try but haven’t yet:

    Hi Charlotte,

    Did anyone respond to your request for Dukan Friendly Slow-cooker recipes? If not do you have any slow-cooker recipes to share?

    Cheers Kat

    • Hi Kat,

      No real responses to the call for slow cooker recipes… Not to worry. I basically chuck casserole steak, carrot, celery, random herbs and beefstock in the slow cooker and let ‘er rip. In fact, I might do that tomorrow! 🙂


      • I’ve never been good at slow cooker recipes. To me they all come out tasting the same – like overcooked meat! Blech…

        Anyhow, I can do an oven version of slow cooker, and I have a few roast recipes that work for Dukan.

        Leg or shoulder cut from any cut of meat (pork, beef, lamb…)
        Whole cloves of garlic (a head or two depending on how much you like garlic) peel on
        Bunch of herbs of choice – Oregano, thyme and rosemary with lamb or beef, savory and sage and thyme for pork are some of my favourite combos – Use any one or any combination of herbs to change things up a little…
        Salt and pepper to taste
        1/2 cup of broth/water/wine (any liquid of choice will do)

        Season the meat with salt and pepper. Split garlic and herbs in 2 piles. Line the roasting pan with 1 pile of seasoning herbs, add liquid and meat, top off with remaining pile of seasonings. Cover tightly with foil and cook at 250F for 4+ hours.

        The larger the cut, the longer the meat has to cook.

        Once the meat is cooked through, remove from oven, let rest for 20 minutes and serve country style at table.

  3. Hi there Charlotte! I ran into your blog when searching for dukan sites and what an inspiration! I recently started blogging about it with my best friend and we were so impressed with the journey you have been through. We are currently on the cruise phase, so as usual, cruising along…

    I was wondering if you would be okay if I featured you on my site? I am trying to start a community of dukan dieters that are currently going through it at the same time as I am so that we can swap recipes and ideas…

    Please contact me at dee@rideena.com and I’d be happy to have a chat with you…

    Take care,


    • Hi Dee,

      Thanks for stopping by! 🙂 Of course I’d be delighted for you to put me on your blog – I’ll link to yours from mine too. 🙂

      Keep in touch!

      Charlotte xx


  4. Hey Charlotte! That’s awesome! I will start writing soon 🙂 And yes, please link my pages and recipes on your site. Feel free to try some of the recipes and give some suggestions if you have any… I’m just learning as I cook so I’m always open for improvements! Anything that’ll end up with delicious tasting healthy food is alright with me! 🙂

    By the way, how are you doing with the diet? Are you at your target? I’m about half way through the cruise phase and it is lagging on a bit… but going well…

    Take care,


  5. Hey Charlotte 🙂 Check out the community page on my site! You are the first hall of famer!


    • Hehe… Thanks Dee! But just to be clear, I’ve not lost 80lbs yet! That’s my ultimate goal, but so far I’m only down about 40lbs or so! Long way to go before I rest. 😉



  6. LOL! hehehe… Hey 40 lbs is AMAZING! Way to go!

    I have been STRICT on my Cruise stage. Now on Cruise for 18 days — seem to be PLATEAU’d and other than falling off the wagon for a few beers I have exercised, oat bran’d, egg’d and meat (chicken/steak/fish) to the point that I don’t miss eating since it is so “boring” (other than the steak). Can I eat sugar free jello? and other non or low-fat stuff? Im afraid I will quit once my friends start gathering at the pool with all the snacks, drinks, etc!!!


    • Hi janelle! First off, well done for being so strict! Don’t worry about the post attack plateau- it happens to a lot of people. Yes, sugarfree jello is fine! 🙂

    Hi Charlotte, I bought the dd book off Amazon two weeks ago and started the attack phase this monday 16th May. Now day4 and lost 5.5 lbs and have stuck to the diet well. Can you clarify if sugar free squash and jelly is ok on diet.


    • Hey Jo!

      Well done with your progress so far! 🙂

      Sugar free squash has seemed to be ok for me in small quantities – it all depends on how strong you make it. Dukan’s rule of thumb is no more than 1 calorie per glass (and I’ve always defined “glass” as 250ml)

      Sugar free jelly is fine, cause you usually have that in much smaller quantities. 🙂

        Thanks so much for reply. Start the Cruise phase tomorrow and can’t believe I’m so looking forward to eating vegetables!!!

    Hi Charlotte, well done and keep it up you are doing great!! I’m on day 3 cruise, and I seem to be doing fine as I’ve already lost 5.6 kgs. but since I’m a sweet tooth, I miss having chocs and biscuits!! I was wondering if the above sweet recipes are ok to have them while on the cruise diet, and if so, how much is ok.
    Thanks so much


  10. Charlotte,
    I find your site inspiring. I’m on day 11 of Cruise and are always looking for some sweet recipes. I found a Chocolate Oat Bran Recipe a few days ago, whilst sneekily browsing the web at work, printed it and never remembered where I got it from. Then I wanted to post it to my site/blog but left it as I didn’t want to upset whoever it belongs too.
    I just found that it is yours! Would you mind me posting it on my site/blog (I don’t have any followers yet, but it’s basically just a diary for me to look back on and an easy way of finding my fav recipes)

    Love your blog! I tried the Chocolate Oat Bran Muffin recipe and it was amazing! I used all oat bran, since I didn’t have wheat bran, and I think it could be even better with a pinch of vanilla and cinnamon. Thanks so much for posting!

    I was looking at the Chocolate Custard Pudding and see that there is no sweetener added…… Tastes OK without??? Was going to try it but wondered about that. Just found your site so will be trying a few of your goodies and am starting to read your posts. Fun. Thanks


    • Hi Bernadette – wow, you’re absolutely right! I forgot to put in sweetener as an ingredient (though I do mention it further down, “add sweetener to taste”) – thanks for the heads up, I’ve rectified that. It definitely doesn’t taste ok without sweetener… 😉
