Dukan Diet Cruise Recipe: Lumpy Dukan Miracle Soup

This is my variation of Dr Dukan’s Miracle Soup (Soupe Miraculeuse).  His recipe can be found on pages 205 and 206 of the UK version of the Dukan Diet book.

Dr Dukan advises that this type of soup is very filling and considers that the fact that the soup has liquid and solid elements is key to how this soup helps you to lose weight.  The solid vegetables stay in the stomach to be digested so that your stomach feels full.  The liquid travels quickly to the small intestines where the digestion of the soup also gives you a feeling of being satisfied.  If you have ever tried the Cabbage Soup Diet you may notice some similarities.

By switching the chicken stock cubes for vegetable stock cubes this recipe then becomes suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Lumpy Dukan Miracle Soup

Ingredients ( 5 or 6 servings)

  • Half a head of cabbage
  • 2 large onions
  • 5 or 6 spring onions (scallions) for garnish
  • 2 tins of chopped tomatoes
  • 3 carrots
  • A head of celery
  • 2 green peppers (bell peppers)
  • 3 chicken bouillon/stock cubes (Vegetarians should use vegetable bouillon/stock cubes
  • Seasoning of choice such as herbs, curry powder or freshly ground black pepper


  1. Prepare all vegetables and cut all except the spring onions in large bite size pieces.
  2. Finely slice the spring onions and reserve to garnish.
  3. Place all the other ingredient in a stockpot or large saucepan and cover with water.
  4. Bring to the boil and cook for ten minutes.
  5. Reduce the heat and simmer until all vegetables are cooked and tender.

    This is similar to one of my favorite polish recipes:

    dump in crockpot for 8 hours on low..
    1 head of cabbage
    3-4 chopped onions
    2-3 rings of kielbasa (in cubes) -gives dish awesome flavor..
    2 16 oz cans of diced tomatoes
    2c of water ( more of a stew with less water which is how I make it usually)

    amber is kielbasa ok on phase 2?
    what about lower fat or chicken kielbasa if regular is not??

    • Amber on February 6, 2016

      Hi Lori

      Whether you can use the kielbasa will depend on how much fat content the sausage has. THe proteins you are allowed to eat don’t change between Attack and Cruise. Can you provide the nutrtional information per 100 g of the kielbasa you use.

    I travel out of town from time to time Plus i work long hours and I need some options available for food that is already prepared and wont require refrigeration. Beef jerkey sounds like a good option however most beef jerkey is not natural plus high in fat and sugar. I am also curious as to what are your thoughts regarding regarding whey protein shakes Whey seems low in fat and sugar.

    • Amber on July 9, 2014

      Hi Tammy

      Finding a suitable beef jerky is going to be hard unless you make your own because of the ingredients used as flavoring. Dr Dukan is very much against protein shakes as they do not help you to learn to change your eating habits. There are not many options for ready made foods that don’t need refrigeration on the Dukan so you might be better looking for a diet plan that better suits your lifestyle.

      Kind regards

    hi amber,
    i have swollen feet any time i have veggies, what is the cause of this, and again, my stomach is very big and i am not losing fast on it any ways to lose the belly fat will be appreciated.thank you Dr. Dukan i loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee my new bodyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

    • Amber on June 23, 2014

      Hi Mavis

      Veggies can have water retentive properties but protein counteracts this. Try to stick to around 1/3 veg 2/3 protein on PV days. If I knew how to get rid of belly fat I’d be a very rich woman:)

      Best wishes

    Hi Amber!

    Will this soup substitute a meal? Every how long do you recommend having it? Every PV day? I see that you recommended not adding protein to the soup. Can we eat some protein on the side though? Or should we skip it as well? The reason I’m asking is because I thought it was recommended to eat 2/3P,1/3V at every meal.

    Thanks for your help!

    • Amber on June 17, 2014

      Hi Giovana

      If you were snacking between meals due to hunger I’d have it without protein but as a meal I’d look to add protein. You probably would not get to 2/3P 1/3V with this meal. Remember it is more of a guide than an absolute must. It is there to prevent people just eating vegetables on PV days.

    I left off the chicken, and used fresh tomatoes, 3 and some mushrooms as I didn’t have any arrows. Then , once cooked, I liquidized the soup and it is delicious! I was worried about not adding salt but there was a salty taste due to the chicken stock cubes, I suppose!

    • Amber on May 14, 2013

      Hi Pam

      I find that the celery adds a lot of flavor.

      Kind regards

    Why can’t I add chicken to the Miracle Soup in the Cruise Phase?

    • Amber on May 13, 2013

      Hi Pam

      You can add chicken but it wouldn’t be Dr Dukan’s Miracle Soup and adding chicken will increase the calories so you aren’t maximizing the benefit of the soup.

      Kind regards

    • Amber on January 24, 2013
