The word "Florentine" on a menu means spinach. This deep-green leaf is full of antioxidants and fiber, and it's delicious too!

What you'll need

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 tsp. white pepper
  • 2 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 6 med turkey cutlets (4 ounces each)
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 small minced garlic
  • 2 med bags fresh baby spinach (8 ounces each)
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup shredded Jarlsberg cheese


  • Step 1
    Pour water into a shallow bowl. On a shallow plate, combine breadcrumbs, pepper, and Parmesan and mix well.
  • Step 2
    Place turkey cutlets between waxed paper and pound to 1/8" thickness, if necessary. Dip cutlets into water, then into breadcrumb mixture to coat.
  • Step 3
    In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add turkey cutlets and cook for 4 minutes. Carefully turn and cook for 4-6 minutes longer, until thoroughly cooked. Remove to serving plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
  • Step 4
    Add garlic to drippings remaining in pan and cook and stir for 1 minute.
  • Step 5
    Add spinach and nutmeg and cook and stir until spinach wilts, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Step 6
    Add the Jarlsberg, top with turkey, cover, and remove from heat. Let stand for 2 minutes to melt cheese, then serve.
