Dukan Caramelised Onion and Balsamic Relish Recipe


This is really yummy to serve with meat. It’s not an exact science recipe, so feel free to adjust the quantities to your taste.
I served this at a dinner party and it went down very well with the guests 🙂

Dukan Caramelised Onion and Balsamic Relish Recipe

Makes 4 Servings

Suitable for Cruise PP & PV

Olive Oil Spray

2 Onions, thinly sliced into half rings

2 cloves of Garlic, crushed

2 tsp Dijon Mustard

3-4 tbsp Sweetener

1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar

1. Lightly spray a pan with Olive Oil and wipe away excess. Gently fry Onions and Garlic until Onion becomes translucent, keep a lid on the pan during this time. You might like to add a little water to the pan to help the onions along…I did 🙂 You should do this for at least 10-15 minutes.

2. Add in Mustard, Sweetener and Balsamic Vinegar and cook uncovered over a low heat for a further 10 or so minutes, until liquid reduces, stirring occasionally.

3. Serve with meat.
