Roasted Autumn Vegetable Galette with Goat CheesePrint
Oh hey. Do you like pie? I made a pie. Sort of. It’s called a galette. It’s rustic and beautiful. Full of sweet vegetables and goat cheese. Laced with roasted garlic and rosemary. It’s golden. It’s comfort. A mosaic of color and flavor…
A peppery pile of baby arugula dressed with lemon and olive oil is all this needs beside it. They are very happy together.
Enjoy your Monday. It’s a great big day for us to spin with actions and words. Make them sweet as pie.
Roasted Vegetable Galette with Goat Cheese
Serves 8 as an appetizer or 4-6 as a meal
- 1 1/2 cups diced peeled carrots (3 medium)
- 1 1/2 cups diced peeled parsnips (3 medium)
- 2 cups diced peeled butternut squash (about half a medium squash)
- 1 cup diced peeled red or golden beets (1-2 medium)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Cracked black pepper, to taste
- 1 head garlic
- 1 (4-ounce) log goat cheese, crumbled
- 1 pie crust (store or homemade)
- 1 egg mixed with 1 tablespoon water, for glazing
- Preheat oven to 400F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Combine carrots, parsnips, squash and beets on lined baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle with rosemary, salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Cut the top off the head of garlic exposing a bit of each clove. Place garlic on a square of foil and sprinkle with a tablespoon of water. Pinch foil together at top into a small packet. Place on baking sheet with vegetables. Roast veggies for 35 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until tender. Garlic is done when cloves are easily pierced by a fork. Let cool slightly.
- Transfer roasted vegetables to a large bowl. Squeeze roasted garlic into a small bowl and mash with remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Toss veggies with garlic mixture and 3/4 of the log of crumbled goat cheese.
- Line an unrimmed baking sheet with parchment and allow crust to come to room temperature. Unroll crust in center of sheet. Pile veggies in center, leaving a 2 inch border all the way around. Sprinkle with remaining goat cheese. Fold crust up around veggies, pleating as you go. Brush edges of crust lightly with egg wash.
- Bake for 35 minutes at 400F or until crust is golden (place a piece of foil loosely over galette if top of crust begins to brown too much before bottom is browned). Let cool 10 minutes before cutting into wedges.
