Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil (plus a little extra for drizzling)
  • 1 leek, sliced into thin half-moons (makes ~2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
  • Salt + pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup green peas, fresh or frozen
  • All-purpose flour (to dust surface)
  • 1 puff pastry, thawed but chilled
  • 1 cup goat cheese
  • ~1/2 bunch thin asparagus spears (woody stems removed)
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • Optional garnish: additional green onions, other fresh herbs, microgreens, sprinkle of goat cheese crumbles, black pepper, etc.

Instructions

  • Heat pan over med-high heat with olive oil. Sauté leeks and green onions for about 10 mins, seasoning with salt and pepper. Stir in peas, then cover pan and remove from heat to continue to soften.
  • Preheat oven to 400F and line large baking sheet with parchment. Roll out puff pastry ON the baking sheet OR on a floured surface, before transferring to baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle goat cheese into the centre of the crust, leaving a 1-inch edge of pastry. Use fingers to gently press cheese down.
  • Drain excess liquid from sautéed veggies (I used a sieve and the back of a spatula), then transfer to the centre of the pastry. Spread veggies out evenly on top of goat cheese.
  • Place asparagus spears on top of veggies. Drizzle with a touch of olive oil, salt + pepper.
  • Fold up edges of pastry, then brush edges with the whisked egg. Place in the middle rack of the oven for 30-35 mins, rotating baking sheet halfway. Edges should be golden brown when done.
    *As oven temperatures + cooking speeds can vary, keep an eye on your galette around the 30 minute mark! You may need to leave it in the oven a little longer or shorter than indicated.
  • Remove galette from oven and garnish with extra green onions, microgreens, or other fresh herbs as desired. Slice + serve warm!

Notes

*SERVINGS: recipe makes 4-6 servings, depending on how large you’d like slices to be!
*LEFTOVERS & REHEATING: Leftovers of this galette will keep for about 3 days in an airtight container in the fridge. In order to best maintain the flaky texture of the crust, I recommend reheating this galette in the oven. Simply pre-heat your oven to about 300-350F, then warm up leftover pieces for about 5 minutes.
*RECIPE MODIFICATIONS & SWAPS:
  • While goat cheese pairs perfectly with this recipe, another soft cheese like ricotta may also taste delicious!
  • Feel free to play around with different vegetables here – I think some sautéed mushrooms or zucchinis would pair perfectly.
  • You can garnish this recipe with some extra green onions, other fresh herbs (like basil or parsley), or sprinkle some microgreens on top for something extra pretty (that’s what I used in these pictures!)
*TIPS:
  • Keep the thawed puff pastry in the fridge until you’re ready to roll it out. It’s much easier to work with puff pastry when it’s chilled.
  • Be sure to either roll out the puff pastry ON the lined-baking dish itself, OR on a floured surface before TRANSFERRING to the baking dish. Please avoid the same mistake I made the first time I tested this, where I added all the fillings before realizing that it would be impossible to transfer to the baking sheet without everything falling apart!!
  • After sautéing the vegetables, I recommend transferring them to a sieve and squeezing out any excess liquid (you can use the back of your spatula to do this). This will help prevent a soggy bottom!
  • Remove the goat cheese from the fridge when you start making the recipe. This will allow it to soften and spread more easily.
  • I found that spreading the goat cheese out on the pastry with my HANDS was a lot more efficient than using a knife (which may have ripped the pastry). Simply sprinkle it around the center and gently press down with your fingers in an even layer.
