AVOCADO SALAD

Ingredients for 4 people: 2 mozzarellas – 1 ripe avocado – 200 g fresh tuna in a single slice – 10 cherry tomatoes – sesame seeds – the juice of half a lemon – pink pepper – extra virgin olive oil – salt

Preparation:

To prepare the avocado salad, cut the tuna into cubes, put them in sesame seeds and quickly sauté them in a non-stick pan for 2 minutes, lightly greased with oil.

Season to taste with salt and let cool.

Cut the Mozzarella and the tomatoes into cubes.

Cut the avocado in half, remove the stone and with the help of a spoon remove the pulp, keeping the skin; cut the pulp into cubes, sprinkle with lemon juice and keep aside.

Mettete tutti questi ingredienti in un’insalatiera e condite con un’emulsione di olio, sale e poco succo di limone. Aggiungete il tonno al resto degli ingredienti e riempite l’avocado svuotato con l’insalata ottenuta. Servite la vostra insalata di avocado guarnendo con un tocco di pepe rosa.

EVERY DAY: AN EASY – FAST – AND CHEAP – RECIPE THAT SUITS EVERYONE

Hi everyone!

You’re thinking about the usual veal scallop recipe? This mustard version, is not only an easy and affordable recipe for everyone but also delicious. The combination with mustard makes it very original.

In fact, very few and simple steps are needed to obtain a second meat dish ideal for an appetizing family dinner. For the creamy sauce we have chosen a French sweet mustard, if you prefer a stronger and spicier flavor opt for an English “Mustard”.

P

Ingredients for 4 people: 4 slices of veal – flour – 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil – 40 g butter – one tablespoon of sweet mustard – 1 sprig of parsley – 2-3 sprigs of thyme – a few trickles of chives – salt

Preparation:

To make the veal scallops with mustard begin by lightly flouring the meat slices.  Heat butter and oil in a large pan and place the slices. Cook them over medium heat for 8-10 minutes, turning them halfway through cooking: the meat must brown on both sides but remain soft. Finally, adjust the salt. Transfer the scallops on a serving plate and keep them warm.

Dilute the cooking sauce with a few tablespoons of hot water or broth, add mustard and stir well to melt completely in the sauce. 

Add to the mixture a chopped mixture of parsley, thyme and chives and cook over low heat for a few minutes. Sprinkle the meat slices with the hot sauce, decorate with some thyme leaves and serve immediately the veal cutlets with mustard.
