Surprisingly delicious savory galette
Until very recently, I had never heard the term "galette." In one of my online surfing sessions, I stumbled onto it.
By definition, a galette is a French cuisine term referring to a simple and versatile pie. It can be sweet or savory. Further exploration on the web had me really curious.
When I first read the ingredients and instructions for the Tomato and Onion Galette above, I was not at all excited. But something about it kind of pushed me to try it. It was delicious!
Here are the ingredients. Notice there are not specific amounts given. That is the versatile part of it!
tomatoes, cut in thick slices, about 3/4 inch
thinly sliced red onion, simmered in red wine vinegar
one pie crust - I made a whole wheat one, using half all purpose flour and half whole wheat
Begin by cutting the tomatoes into thick slices. Place on a baking sheet covered in foil. Sprinkle with a little salt if you like. In a foil pouch, place cut up garlic with a little water and seal. Put this on the baking sheet with the tomatoes. Roast in a 350 oven for an hour.
Prepare the pie crust.
Simmer the sliced red onion in red wine vinegar.
Place the pie crust on a foil covered baking sheet. Top with red onions, tomatoes, mashed garlic, and feta cheese. Sprinkle with thyme. Prepare the pie crust around the vegetables as shown in the picture.
Bake in a 400 degree over till crust is done - about 25 to 30 minutes.
I think you will be very pleasantly surprised with this one!
