That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I find an good answer. You should email the people at Dukan Diet as they probably can answer it..
Christina has a great recipe to make the fajitas into a pot pie dinner entree:.
Mexican Pot Pie.
1 Dukan Diet Vegetable Fajita.
8oz chicken broth or water.
2/3 c frozen mixed vegetables.
1/4 c country gravy (I used the one I use for the breakfast bowl).
1 Laughing Cow light wedge.
Dash of pepper, poultry seasoning and onion powder.
2 1/2 tbsp biscuit mix.
Pinch of poultry seasoning.
Dash baking soda.
1 tbsp buttermilk.
Preheat oven or toaster oven to 400 degrees. In a small pot on the stove, mix together the fajita mix and the chicken broth or water. Cook over medium heat until it starts to thicken. Add in the veggies, country gravy, cheese and seasonings and contine to cook for another 10-15 minutes to allow the flavors to blend and the veggies to cook. Pour into a single serve cassarole dish as shown in photo 1. In a small bowl, mix together the topping ingredients just until blended.
You can try to spread it around if you like, but it's not easy. Next time I would just leave it without trying to spread it. Spray it with a few sprays of butter spray and bake until the top is golden. Counts as entree + veggie serving. If you have an extra protein, feel free to add in some chicken or ground beef crumbles...
I like to put it on a whole wheat roll with FF cheese!..
I was just going to suggest christina's receipe, I tried it the other night and even my hubby loved it and he is not on the plan. Just be real hungry because it is very filling...
Wow, Christina's recipe sound 'gourmet'. Is there another website or something for her recipes? I did the Recipe Exchange - the one that has a lot of Dukan Diet comparisons etc. And the Dukan Diet recipe club. Didn't see it there. But anyway they all sound wonderful. Thanks, Teri..
Hi Teri!! I do have a website where I keep all of my recipes. There is a link to it in my signiture below. I hope you find a few recipes you like. Just scroll down to the recipe section and they are divided up into catagories..
I love to cook, so I add more often!! Have a terriffic day!! Christina..
I gotta say that you MUST do something with this: add veggies or whatever. I tried it right out of the packet and it was the worst meal I've had yet on NS. Very disappointing, but next time I will try enhancing it...
I had it tonight for the first time, and boy it was.
I didn't mind the taste, but my stomach is still burning from the spices-.
I'm glad I took a prilosec today...
Christina, I just checked out your recipes and all I can say is WOW!!! You are an awesome cook. I will definitley try some of the breakfast ones on the weekend when I have more time to cook in the morning! Thanks..
Katie, I agree that it's plenty spicy! I am surprised that my tummy didn't react more than normal. I think more tomatoes (fresh) may help to cut that down quite a bit. Christina's recipes list is quite extensive, and worth checking out!.
What a clever idea...using the Dukan Diet tuna as your mayo!.

I've seen this recipe all over the place, but can't seem to find one for the country gravy. Any suggestions?..
I had the veggie fajitas for the first time last night. I added some cumin and garlic powder to the sauce. I had some extra protein from earlier in the day so I added some chicken, shredded cheese and a little salsa. I put it all on top of a whole wheat tortilla with some FF sour cream. It was huge!..
The country gravy that Christina uses is "Pioneer Brand" country gravy. It comes in a package that looks kind of like the package for Dukan Diet pancake mix. WalMart has a big section with all different kinds of gravy and sauce mixes, that is where I found it..
Christina's recipe is fantastic and well worth the time spent making it...yummy!!!!!..
I love Christina's recipe! I don't even use the gravy and it is wonderfull!..
I did this tonight, soooo much better! Actually I quite liked them. I may have to "eat" my words :0)..
My husband and I are only on day 4, but we had our first fajitas tonight. I read in some of the forums last night that people like to rehydrate the fake meats/dehydrated meats before they cook them, so I poured boiling water over the whole fajita mix, covered it with a plate for ten minutes or so, then used our fat serving for dinner to put some olive oil in a skillet and saute it. I added extra cumin and coriander and garlic and onion powder, and some sea salt (please don't hit meI had to do it, but I didn't put much). It soaked up all the remaining water really fast, and smelled really good. We had found something in the produce aisle called "salsa in a bag", which was all the things you need for salsa already washed and ready to go. We made blender salsa and he ate his on corn torillas like soft tacos, and I used a low-carb tortilla to wrap mine like a burrito.
He is from Texas, and we both love spicy and/or Mexican food. After we ate, we both thought it would have been even better if we had remembered to put some lettuce on it...
I had this for the first time last night, I substituted 1/2 cup brown rice for the tortilla/whole grain roll and stuffed a pepper with it and added a touch of FF sour cream, a little spicy but YUMMY..
