4 pattypan squash, or other summer squash 320 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard 3 g
4 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1/2 lemon
1/2 tbsp olive oil 8 mL
300 g veal cutlets, thinly sliced
Roasted Garlic and Basil Sauce

Before you start

If possible, choose «milk-fed veal» which is much younger and more tender than the grain-fed one.

The sauce may be prepared in advance.

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Boil the pattypan squash in a pot of salted boiling water, about 4 min, until al dente. Drain them in a colander, then season with salt and pepper. Keep the squash warm in the oven.
  2. In a shallow dish, combine the mustard, lemon juice, and olive oil. If the veal slices are too thick, gently flatten them to about 3 mm, using a meat pounder. Dip the escalopes in the mustard mixture or brush them with it on both sides.
  3. Heat a ridged grill pan over medium-high heat. Cook the veal escalopes in batches about 1 min per side, or until cooked through.
  4. Season the veal with salt and serve it on the warmed dishes with the squash and the Roasted Garlic and Basil Sauce.
