Dukan Diet Cruise PP Recipe: Caramelized Onion Scones
I couldn’t do without my sweet treats but sometimes you just want something savory and these Caramelized Onion Scones make a lovely change and are a great accompaniment for soup.
Caramelizing onions brings out the flavor in the onions. The natural sugars of the onions come out as they are slowly cooked and the trick is to let the onions brown but not burn. I always top my steak with caramelized onions and as a small amount of onion is allowed on protein days, they can be enjoyed in small quantities in the Attack Phase and PP days.
I’ve classified the recipe as being suitable for PP days as onion is allowed in reasonable amounts to flavor foods but if you are heavy handed with the onions you might want to eat these on PV days only. As the recipe contains tolerated ingredients it cannot be used in the Attack Phase.
One scone = 1 tablespoon of oat bran and one tolerated item

- A little sea salt to season
- Finely slice the onions and fry with the teaspoon of olive oil until caramelized and allow to cool.
- Place the oat bran, wheat bran, corn starch/corn flour in a bowl with a little salt and the baking powder and mix to get an even distribution of these ingredients and then add half of the caramelized onions and stir again.
- Separate the egg in to two bowls.

- Whisk the Greek yogurt and egg yolk.
- Fold the egg whites into the yogurt mix and then fold in the dry ingredients. (Add a little extra wheat bran if the mixture is too wet or a little milk if too dry).
