I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I bump into an anything. You should email the people at Dukan Diet as they probably could help you..
I like the split pea soup as is. I have added salmon or cod in it for a change..
If you thicken the split pea soup, it can be used as a gravy over steamed vegetables, tuna, salmon, cod, or lean meats. Try it! You'll like it!..
I like it with bacon bits. Adds that critical (for me) pigginess...
One way to find other ideas of what to do with the soup is to do a search of the board. Open up the "Nutrisystem Recipes' thread and on the thick blue line at the top of the thread on the far right side, there is a dark box that says 'search this forum', click on that and put in 'Split Pea Soup' and you will find several different ideas..
Good luck to you!..
I tried the swedish meatballs with pasta for dinner. It was good,but had no pasta in it. I mean it, it was only meatballs in gravy. It was good, but thank God I had cauliflower to soak up the gravy. anybody else have that happen. It was pretty funny. My husband got a chuckle out of it..
Hmmm ... so that's what I've been missing..
I gotta try it , though I do like the soup just plain...
I love the Pea Soup plain too but bacon bits sound very intriguing. Is that doable on NS? Please say yes and tell me how...
I think a tablespoon of bacon bits could be a free food - 20 calories or less..
That is super funny!.
I mixed my split pea soup with a cup of steamed veggies!! It was a crazy green looking vegetable soup which was ok cause I love the color green!.
It was really good and I can't wait to toss in some bacon bits next time!..
Yes, it's doable. I love the split pea soup and add the bacon bits and Laughing Cow French onion ~ oh my! It's so good!..
Ohhhh I never thought of tossing a LC in there!..
I must have goten your pasta, I had only 5 meat balls...
I really like the split pea soup, but to make it even better I add a slice of canadian bacon. Yummy! Makes it split pea & Ham!..
I have always chopped up 2 FF hotdogs and added them in. Makes for a higher sodium meal but still very good!.
I tried to like this one, but the texture was too much for me. It got very thick and pasty and just didn't quite tasting right. I ended up throwing it away after a few bites. oh well...and I did like split pea soup when I was a kid, but I am sure this was a whole different thing. I still have 2 of them that were sent...so, I will give it another try with bacon bits and hopefully a little thinner consistency...
Try thinning it with chicken broth or tomato juice to give it a little flavor...
If you search the recipe forum like Elaine suggested, you'll see this, I'm sure, but I add diced ham to my split pea soup as my protein add-in for lunch. Yum!!! And I was.
A fan of split pea soup before trying this Dukan Diet entree!..
This is not one of my favorites, but I had it for lunch today with some new modifications..
I sauteed about 2 T onion in some ICBINB and added about 1/4 cup diced baby carrots (small dice). I let the onion soften a bit then added about 2/3 cup ff chicken broth and simmered it to soften the carrot. Just before I was ready to add it to the soup container, I tossed in two slices of canadian bacon, diced, and some freshly ground pepper. This filled the container to the brim. I stirred it and let it sit per the directions..
The flavor and consistency was almost like homemade soup. I gave my husband a bite and he said it was very tasty. I think next time I might add just a bit of fresh garlic to the onion..
Anyway, this is not something I could do on a weekday, but for a weekend lunch on a cold, blustery day, it really hit the spot. It was very filling and yummy. Could be I've found a new favorite...
I make broccoli pea soup out of mine...use 2c broccoli florets (replaces the lunchtime salad) and it makes a very large bowl of stew-like soup. Add a dollup of NF plain yogurt & sprinkle w/shredded parm cheese..
Make the split pea soup per directions & set aside..
Measure out 2c broccoli florets (cut rather small).
Dump into a pot of boiling water (or water + LS chicken broth) with just enough in the pan to cover the broccoli..
Cook until broccoli is done & turn off heat..
In a blender put the reconstituted pea soup, 3/4 of the broccoli and pulse. Add a little bit of the broccoli water to get to the desired consistency. Continue to pulse until soup is a creamy consistency..
Add the rest of the broccoli & pulse just a couple times so you have some chunks in a creamy base..
Discard the balance of the water/chicken broth or put in a dish and reserve in the refrigerator for another serving..
Return soup to the pan & ensure soup is well heated..
Transfer to a large soup/pasta bowl..
Add a dollup of NF plain yogurt in the center..
Sprinkle with shredded parm cheese..
Ps: you can also add some diced, cooked onion, carrot and celery if you like - but that takes more time & I tend to like quick & easy...
Thank all of you for all your ideas. I will try the bacon bits and the veggies..
I like it as is. I too never thought I would like it but it is surprisingly good. Have you actually tried it as is?..
A few years ago when I was on Nutrisystem a pancake breakfast was posted that was so wonderful that I want to make it again but I have lost the recipie. basically you mix the pancake mix, add an egg, vanilla and fruit (i think), then microwave in a bowl for about a minute. Does anyone recognize this recipie? Thanks for your help...
Run a search for Paul's Bundt Cake. You can also find it up above in tips & recipes..
I detest sps, so I plan on giving it to my husband. Mikey likes it, he'll eat anything...
There's always a lot of people that complain that the Dukan Diet version of something doesn't taste like - or is as good as - it's "real" counterpart. IOW, just because you like the "real" version of an entree doesn't guarantee you'll like the Dukan Diet version. Most people accept this. I've found, though, that the inverse is also true. Just because you don't like the "real" version, doesn't mean you're going to dislike the Dukan Diet version. The split pea soup is a perfect example of this.
Moral of the story: Never just write an entree off, or assume you.
To modify it..
Try it at least once plain. I'm not saying order every entree that Dukan Diet offers, but if they give you a free item, give it a shot. You may be surprised..
All that said, I'll eat the soup plain, but sometimes I'll cut up a hot dog saved from my morning protein (or in place of my half cup of milk if I mix the granola with yogurt) and/or add some hot sauce...
