What are scallopini? Italian-style thinly-sliced meat cooked in a tasty sauce. The perfect accompaniment for pasta
Scaloppine di vitello (veal scalloppini) is an extremely popular Italian dish. It’s traditionally made from pieces of thinly-sliced meat, dipped in flour and fried in butter. In this recipe, we make a healthy variation by using seitan: a vegetarian meat substitute with a rich texture, packed with protein and low in carbohydrates.
