    White sauce

    This sauce works well in the courgette lasagne recipe to follow.
    It's a take on a béchamel but I must admit, lacks the lovely creaminess of the classic, fatty version.

    200ml milk
    1 heaped tsp cornflour (tolerated item)
    1 clove garlic crushed
    Salt & pepper to taste

    Mix the cornflour with a little milk to make a paste.
    Add the garlic, salt & pepper and remaining milk.
    Heat gently, stirring constantly until thick.

    I did wonder about a tsp of quark added? Would maybe give that cheesy taste it lacks. Trust me though, works really well in a lasagne

    Right... Nailed it!!!
    200ml milk
    1 tsp cornflour
    1/2 pot extra light Philadelphia
    1 clove garlic
    Handful chives
    Salt & pepper

    As above but...
    Mix the garlic and chives with the Philadelphia and then slowly add the heated milk mixture.

    Courgette and beef bolognesd lasagne

    This was a winner with my family so thought I'd share.
    I alternated sliced butternut squash and courgette but I preferred the courgette layers. Will stick only with courgette but imagine aubergine would also work well.

    Cruise: protein & vegetable
    Use the bolognese and White sauce recipes above.

    1-2 large courgettes

    Slice courgettes lengthways to a medium thickness (about a £1 coin).
    Using a large rectangular dish start with a courgette layer that completely covers the base. Trim any slices to get a good 'seal'.
    Add 1/4 White sauce and spread evenly then do the same with the bolognese. Top with another layer of courgette and repeat until all the mixture is used. End with a courgette layer.

    See what you think

    Thai Style Salmon en pappiotte

    This is sooooo easy so give it a go!!

    1 salmon fillet
    2 handfuls king prawns
    1/2 red onion, sliced
    1/2 White onion, sliced
    1/4 red pepper, thinly sliced
    1/4 yellow pepper, thinly sliced
    4-5 florets broccoli or pak choi or asparagus (or all!)
    2 gloves garlic, crushed
    Thumbnail piece ginger, thinly chopped
    6 teaspoons soy sauce
    Glug water
    Salt & pepper

    Large rectangle kitchen foil

    Place the vegetables, garlic and Ginger in the middle of the foil. Lay the salmon on top and create a parcel by folding the foil edges over the top of the salmon. Then seal one end tightly ensuring the parcel is water tight. Next, pour the water in the open end of the parcel and carefully seal. Place on a baking tray and bake for 15 minutes on 200/gas 5.
    After this time open the top of the parcel and add the prawns. Bake for a further 5 minutes open so the salmon browns. Finally, add the soy and cook for a further 5 minutes.
    Season and enjoy!! : )

    Veggie Wedges

    You have probably already done this one but hey, thought I'd log in on the thread incase. I stumbled across it whilst cooking Chilli con Carne and spicy wedges for Saturday night dinner with friends. The chilli was dukan friendly (let me know if you want the recipe on here and I'll post it) but I didn't want to feel I was eating something different to everyone else so...

    2 carrots, sliced lengthways into 'wedges'
    1 butternut squash, sliced lengthways into 'wedges'
    1 tsp smoked paprika
    Salt and pepper
    Few sprays of no cal cooking spray

    Slice the carrot and squash into equal sized 'wedges'.
    Place on a baking tray and spray with the no cal cooking spray.
    Sprinkle with paprika and salt & pepper and shake the tray so everything is coated.
    Cooked for 20-25 minutes until starting to brown. Shake the tray half way through cooking.

    They won't come out 'crispy' like potato (ummmmm!) wedges do but they are a very good alternative (I think!)

    Chilli Con Carne... As promised

    So, I make this as 'my' dinner and only need to tweak it slightly for non dukaners who are over for dinner (and my other half!).

    Cruise- protein and veg day
    Serves 4-6 and can be bulked out by adding more veggies

    500g extra lean minced beef
    1 large onion, diced
    1 large carrot, diced
    5-6 mushrooms, thinly sliced
    3 peppers, diced (I use red, yellow & green for colour)
    2 tins chopped tomatoes
    1 beef oxo cube (tolerated item)
    Dash Worcestershire sauce
    2 tsp chilli powder (I use a medium heat)
    1 tsp smoked paprika
    1 dessertspoon tomato purée
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    1 dessertspoon sweetener

    In a large frying pan, fry the carrots and onion in a little oil or no cal cooking spray until soft. Add the mince and brown. Next on a low heat stir in the spices, garlic, tomato purée, crumble over the beef oxo cube and add the sweetener. Stir until the mixture is coated in these flavours. Turn the heat back up and add the peppers and mix. Next add the mushrooms and stir and finally the tinned tomatoes and Worcestershire sauce. Stir everything together and simmer on a low heat for 25-30 minutes.

    If cooking this for non dukaners I also prepare easy chilli beans which is combined with this once I have my portion.

    Chilli beans
    1 tin kidney beans drained
    1 tin haricot beans drained
    1 tin tomatoes
    1/2 tsp chilli powder
    1/2 tsp smoked paprika

    In a saucepan place all the ingredients above and cook on a low heat for 20-25 minutes.

    Once both dishes are ready, take your dukan portion first and then add the chilli beans to the remaining chilli. No one would know you were eating something slightly different!!!

    Oooh... If either dish starts to look try add some water. I think I had about 100ml maybe throughout the cooking time x

    Let me know what you think x

    Thank you x

    Just a big thank you to everyone that has looked at this thread and an even bigger thank you to those that have tried one of my recipes.

    Please keep looking back as I try and update everytime I stumble across something that I have made and loved. My logic is that if I like it, you guys might do too.

    I'd love to hear more about whether you have enjoyed anything I've posted and also, any alterations/tweaks you may have made.

    Thank you again for trusting me.
    I hope you haven't been disappointed.

    Lots of love

    Chilli sounds delicious, I haven't added paprika before but will now as I love it. I do add ground cumin to mine which gives it another edge.... Try it and see what you think xx
