Lemon Ricotta Oat Bran Galette

Lemon Ricotta Galette

Oat bran is a key element in the Dukan diet. It can be challenging to find ways to make this stuff palatable. This light and easy pancake is a tasty way to eat your oat bran. Delicious, actually. Makes 1 galette big enough for two. You may cut  the recipe in half for a single serving.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

2 egg whites
4 tablespoons oat bran
2 tablespoons fat-free plain Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons fat-free ricotta
Zest of  ½ small lemon
1 teaspoon zero-calorie sweetener, such as Stevia.

Method

In a small bowl, beat the egg white until foamy. In a separate bowl, combine the oat bran, Greek yogurt, ricotta, lemon zest, and sweetener. Add the beaten egg white and mix until blended. Place a small nonstick pan over medium heat. Pour the pancake mixture into the pan and cook for around 5 minutes, or until the underside is golden and the upper side starts to dry. Flip the galette carefully (they are fragile at this stage) with a spatula and continue cooking the other side for an additional 5 minutes. Remove to a plate and allow to cool briefly before serving.

Notes

  1. You may use two whole eggs in place of the egg whites if cholesterol is no concern.
  2. For a treat, cover the top with no-fat no-sugar whipped cream substitute (from a spray can).
  3. Feel free to experiment.

    Hello Larry,
    love your work and just saw that you are on Dukan. I just hit “Cruise” and was interested in what your observations are about it, considering the “work” (tasting kitchen glories) you do. How do you manage it?

    Just made quenelles out of ground shrimp, ground chicken, egg white and lots of ginger. First thing that tastes “un” Dukan. Light and simmered in broth. Will keep my eye open for any ideas you may have.
