This savory galette makes a great lunch or dinner
A galette is like a pie, except the crust is only on the bottom and the sides and it’s a totally free-form dish. No pie plate here!
A good galette has a crust that is nice and crisp. But the filling can create a problem. Most veggies are filled with water, which can make the crust wet. The solution? We put a layer of grated Parmesan cheese on the bottom of the galette before adding the filling. This creates a (delicious!) barrier against any excess water.
If you don’t want to make the dough yourself, feel free to use a store-bought dough. Also, it’s important to bake the galette right after assembling it. Don’t let it sit around and get soggy!
