Stuffed Veal Roulades

You know those recipes that appear to be super fancy when you serve them, but in reality were super-duper easy to make? Ya, well this is one of those. This recipe came about on a relatively cold fall day a few years back, when I wanted to put together something cozy and comforting, which is the best way to describe this dish.

You can also pre-make the filling or pre-stuff and roll the veal and keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to cook it up, making it one of my famous easy weeknight meals. I love prepping things ahead, so that all I have to do is cook it. Although, this recipe is relatively quick to prep and doesn’t require much active time. It’s great to make it ahead if you plan on serving it as a main when you are hosting. There’s nothing I love more than having everything prepped and ready to go, for hassle-free hosting. You’ll probably recognize that most of my recipes are conducive to that concept.

There’s just something about the mix of flavours in every bite: the sweetness of the dates, the crunch of the walnuts, and the creamy sharpness of the goat cheese mixed into the spinach – every bite is satisfying!

Enjoy! XX
