You can call this ‘crostata’ if you like. They are basically the same thing, a rustic tart crust folded over the filling, sweet or savoury, baked flat rather than in a tart pan, just French and Italian, respectively. Recently I have come across a spinach galette and a mushroom galette, both of which looked very interesting and delicious. So I purposely made lots of red wine spinach, baked mushrooms, so I would have leftovers just for this recipe. Bring this to potlucks or picnics as it tastes FANTASTIC cold.

CrustFilling
  • 180 g Wholegrain spelt flour
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 70 g Cold unsalted butter
  • 6 tbsp Ice water
  1. Place wholegrain spelt flour and salt in a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Cut in the cold butter and mix with your fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Drizzle ice water into the bowl and continue to mix ingredients with your fingertips. Turn out the dough onto your work surface and gather the dough into a ball. Wrap the ball with a plastic film and flatten the dough into a thick round. Chill in the fridge for at least one hour, or up to two days.
  2. Preheat oven to 200C/400F. Roll out the dough between two pieces of parchment paper to form a 15-inch circle. Sprinkle half of Parmesan and Gorgonzola in the center, leaving 2-3 inches border all around. Then mound the red wine spinach, roasted mushrooms, and beet on the top of cheeses.
  3. Fold the border up and over the filling to form a rim, pleating as necessary. Now sprinkle the remaining Parmesan and Gorgonzola over the vegetables. Brush egg glaze over the rim.
  4. Bake the galette until the crust is nicely golden brown, about 30-35 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Slide onto a serving platter and sprinkle some garden cress over. Serve hot or at room temperature.

A savory crostata (I usually think of them as desserts). What a great idea and looks so pretty too.

I do love the rustic look of this dish. I can never have too many recipes for mushrooms and this does have some great elements of flavor. This looks very satisfying and I am sure that that meat would not be missed. Have a great day!

Barbara 30/4/12 13:56

What a great rustic tart, Angie. Love the red wine vinegar spinach; that would be a great foil for the beets.

This is so beautiful! I have to try making a galette! I love their look!

kitcheninspirations 30/4/12 16:07

Although I love the idea of gorgonzola, I am not that fond of the fact that it renders as the crust bakes, so I would likely substitute it for goats cheese, which goes amazingly well with beet and mushrooms. I am intrigued on the Parmesan roasted mushrooms, so I'm going to check it out right now.

Claudia 30/4/12 17:34

No red wine spinach in these parts but I am thinking regular spinach would do. I just love the savory! Bring this to me anytime - prefer it over the sweet (and well - mushroom and I are good friends).

Nicely done, Angie. I have been wanting to try this for a while now. I love the easiness of it instead of trying to form a tart. Have some swiss chard, that should hopefully work as well.
