That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at Dukan Diet as they probably could give you help..
I add garlic and hot peppereither dried chipotle flakes or ground. I also squeeze in some fresh lemon to a lot of the tomato based sauces..
Basil and oregano are good, too. Hot sauce is also nice..
I sometimes put curry powder in the Stroganoff and Risotto...
I am curry queen! Saute garlic, ginger, onions, add fettucine or pasta primavera, some cauliflower and curry - yum. Can you get thai mix at your grocery store? That and a spoonful of peanut butter added to noodles along with tofu is a passable pad thai..
Instead of drowning salad in dressing, chop cucumber, tomato, a bit of feta and drizzle with vinegar(balsamic is best but use what you have) and add oregano - you won't miss the fatty dressing.I'm always adding cinnamon, ginger - gingerbread spices I guess to oatmeal and pancake mix..
I also add paprika to eggs.
The bean lunches, chili, and fajita taste fresher with a squeeze of lime and a handful of fresh coriander..
Experiment - take a spoonful of the dish and see if you like the seasoning before adding it to he whole serving if you're doubtful...
Adding 1 tsp Kraft dayglo orange cheese topping powder can improve some of the dried pasta with cheese dishes too. Only 13 or so calories, but does add some salt too...
Check some of these flavors out.
