Italian broccoli cutlets.. a dish that you can cook in the oven or simply fried in a pan, they are excellent in both cooking! Let’s see how to prepare them.



1 roman broccoli
2 eggs
2 sprigs parsley
extra-virgin olive oil


1-Wash the Romanesco broccoli well, remove the leaves and with a very sharp knife cut the broccoli into finger-sized slices, taking care not to break them.

2-Slightly remove the hardest part of the central part of the torso, not the florets.

3-Put the breadcrumbs in a bowl with a pinch of salt and pepper and the chopped parsley. In another bowl beat the eggs, and in another the flour.

4-Pass all the broccoli slices, first in the flour, then in the beaten eggs and then in the breadcrumbs, pressing well with your hands so that the breadcrumbs adhere perfectly.

5-Place the ready slices on a baking sheet, I used this non-stick one, lined with lightly oiled baking paper. Sprinkle the slices with another drop of oil and bake at 180 degrees for 25 minutes. Serve hot..Enjoy!




1-Heat plenty of seed oil, when hot, place the breaded broccoli slices. cook 12 minutes per side, turning often. Drain the cutlets on absorbent paper and pat dry. Serve piping hot.
