Recipe Box: Dukan Diet – Custard

The Dukan Diet Custard recipe, comes directly from the Dukan Diet book.  It’s meant for those on the Attack Phase, but can be used during any phase!

Serves: 6

Preparation Time: 20 minutes, plus a minimum of 2 hrs. and 30 min. chill time.

Cooking time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 5 eggs
  • 1 fresh vanilla pod, split lengthwise (I use about 1 tbsp of vanilla extract in its place)
  • 1 1/2 c. nonfat milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground nutmeg, plus a pinch for garnish

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
  2. In a large heatproof bowl, beat the eggs until smooth.
  3. Pour the milk into a medium saucepan. Scrape out the inside of the vanilla pod and add the seeds and the bean to the milk (or instead, the tbsp of vanilla extract).
  4. Over low heat, heat the milk until small bubbles appear around the edge of the pan.  Do not let the milk boil!
  5. Remove the vanilla pod (if used) and slowly pour the hot milk over the eggs, stirring constantly.
  6. Add the tbsp of vanilla extract and 1 tsp of nutmeg.
  7. Pour the mixture into 6 individual ramekins.
  8. Sprinkle each with nutmeg.
  9. Place the ramekins in a large baking pan and fill the pan with boiling water, about 3/4 of the way up the sides of the ramekins.
  10. Bake for 30-35 minutes
  11. Allow custards to cool in the pan for 30 minutes and place in the refrigerator covered for 2 hours before serving.
  12. I sprinkle one packet of Truvia on each custard before serving.
