When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary.

Tofu Milanese Recipe – NYT Cooking

  • step 1

    Bring a large pot of well-salted water to a boil. Drain the liquid from the tofu and cut crosswise into 8 rectangular cutlets. Pat dry and season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • step 2

    Put flour on a plate. Beat together egg and milk in a shallow medium bowl. Sprinkle bread crumbs on a rimmed baking sheet.

  • step 3

    Working one at a time, dip a slice of tofu in the flour, lightly coating all sides. Place in the bowl with egg mixture. Lift slice from egg mixture and set on crumbs in a single layer. Shower the top layer with crumbs and flip to coat well. Repeat with remaining slices. If not using right away, refrigerate, uncovered for up to 4 hours, until ready to cook.

  • step 4

    To a small bowl, add parsley and capers, and zest the lemon over. Mix together, and set aside mixture, reserving the rest of the lemon.

  • step 5

    Add broccoli rabe to the boiling water and cook for 1 minute. Drain and cool.

  • step 6

    Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a wide 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and red pepper; let sizzle without browning, about 15 to 30 seconds. Add broccoli rabe and stir to coat. Cook, tossing often, for 3 to 4 minutes, until softened. Pile on a platter.

  • step 7

    To cook cutlets, wipe out the skillet and, in the same pan, heat ½ inch olive oil (about 1 cup) over medium-high. When the oil is wavy, cook the breaded tofu cutlets in 2 batches without crowding until golden and crisp, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined baking sheet and keep warm.

  • step 8

    To serve, surround the broccoli rabe with tofu cutlets. Stir 2 tablespoons of olive oil to parsley-caper mixture. Spoon some onto each cutlet. Slice the lemon into wedges, and serve alongside the cutlet.
