Artichoke Spinach Galette

Artichoke Spinach Galette

I’ve been Galette-Obsessed lately.

 

I actually dream of ingredients that I can stuff inside the earthy pie crust. While I’m in the produce section, I’m thinking hm, would that work?

I truly love the idea of a freeform pie that takes on rustic characteristics with hearty contents. Not only are they beautiful, but they can be versatile too! The fillings can be sweet for more of a dessert theme, or savory and cheesy like the one I made today.

I thought this particular version would be an amazing appetizer for our New Year’s Eve get-together. The simple, aromatic ingredients will satisfy all the people on our guest list!

It’s going to pair perfectly with my new fave California sparkling wine, Rosé. Can’t get enough of it!

As an appetizer, this galette will serve about 20 people. I suggest the slices be pie shaped and very thin. The rich taste and flaky crust goes a long way!

Three artichokes in strainer

I started with fresh, California artichokes. If you are pressed for time, you can use canned artichokes, but I find using fresh artichokes makes all the difference in flavor with this galette! We steam them for about 30 minutes and use the hearts.

Chop the artichokes hearts and top the cheese mixture with them.

Fold the pie crust over the ingredients

Fold the pie crust over the ingredients

Bring up the pie crust over the ingredients and fold to form a crease or pleat. Continue to do this all the way around the entire galette.

Using the egg wash, brush the dough before putting into a 375 degree oven for 35-40 minutes.
