Veal cutlets stuffed with pesto


Veal cutlets stuffed with pesto

For this dish, you will need very thin veal or turkey cutlets. The ones which you find in supermarkets are pretty thick but they can easily be flattened at home. Place the cutlets between two film sheets and flatten with a baking roller or by gently pounding with your fist.

2 servings

2 large and thin veal or turkey cutlets

Olive oil

For the stuffing:

A handful of chopped parsley and basil

2 tbsp. grated parmesan

2 tbsp. sliced almonds

1 tsp. capers

1 tbsp. olive oil

½ clove garlic, minced

For the sauce:

1 tbsp. olive oil

1 shallot, minced

100 ml white wine

1 tsp. Dijon mustard

Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 200° C roast.

With a handheld mixer, purée all the stuffing ingredients. The stuffing does not need to be totally smooth. Divide it on the cutlets, fold them and fix with a cocktail stick. Place the cutlets in an oiled oven-proof dish and drizzle over a little olive oil. Roast for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile make the sauce. Warm 1 tbsp. olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat and sauté the shallot for 5- 10 minutes. Add the white wine, mustard, and some black pepper and cook until reduced.

Divide the cutlets on the plates and pour the sauce over. Serve with roasted sweet potato slices or black rice and some greens.
