Dukan Diet Recipe: Baked Zucchini Chips or Courgette Crisps

Finding suitable foods to snack on whilst in the first three phases of the Dukan Diet can be quite a challenge but if you are on a PV day and looking for a snack to replace potato chips (US) or crisps (UK) you might like to try making yourself some vegetable crisps.

One of the most popular types of vegetable crisps are those made with zucchinis or courgettes.  They are a great party food to serve with fat free dips.  You can make them plain with just a little salt or use other flavorings such as paprika, chili powder or curry but you need to be quite sparing with any seasoning used as they shrink in size as they crispen and this concentrates the seasoning!




Baked Zucchini Chips or Courgette Crisps

Ingredients

  • 1 large zucchini or courgette
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • Sea salt or other seasoning of your choice
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 225°Fahrenheit, 110° Celsius or Gas mark 14.
  2. Thinly slice the zucchini/courgette crossways into medallions or length ways into strips if the zucchini/courgette is not very big.
  3. Brush olive oil thinly onto a small piece of foil and use this to oil one side on each zucchini/courgette by placing on the foil
  4. Replace oil on the foil as needed.
  5. Place your slices on a silicone baking sheet oil side up and sprinkle sparingly with your seasoning.
  6. Place in preheated oven and bake 45 minutes.
  7. Turn the baking sheet to ensure even cooking and continue baking until done to your liking.
  8. Allow to cool and enjoy as soon as possible!!

    Hi Amber,

    Thank you so much once again for your assistance. Is nutritional yeast allowed? It is also known as Engevita yeast; it is a yellow powdery or flaky condiment that vegetarians generally use.

    Thanks,
    Jane

      Hi Jane

      This product is quite high in protein and low in fat but it is quite high in carbs. How about treating it as one of your two daily tolerated food items in Cruise and see if it impacts your weight loss.

      Best wishes

      Hi Jane

      These vegetables look to be a little too high in carbs to be suitable. Sorry!

      Best wishes
