This roasted beets and goat cheese galette will prove that beets can be delicious and fancy. In this recipe, you will learn how to cook beets the right way, how to make 100% white whole wheat crust and how to use the underdog vegetable to create the beautiful galette.
The main hero in this vegetable galette is one of the underappreciated veggie – beets. Few people like them, few can’t stand, and the majority just doesn’t know what to cook with beets. For that reason, I hardly see beets in someone’s shopping cart.
I can’t say beet is my favorite vegetable, but I think it deserves more attention. When you know what to do with them and how to cook beets the right way, they will shine. I decided not only to offer you a recipe to use beets but create something beautiful with unique flavors.
Moreover, I know not many people also love goat cheese. To spice things up, I decided to add this as well. Goat cheese and beets are a perfect marriage. They complement each other so much and create such a complex flavor. To go even further I added one of my favorite vegetable –onions. To mellow down the flavor, you need to roast them first, though. Combining two fall root vegetables and adding other flavors gave birth to this rustic beet galette.
And I mean rustic. I think the process of making galette is rustic. The feeling when you fold the dough over the vegetables without any fuss and trimming brings you to a country house where you just picked fresh vegetables from the garden and decided to make a quick galette. The soothing flow makes me go back to galettes every time, and mostly I prefer them to pies.
I chose to go 100% whole wheat for the crust. Not only it brings nutty flavor to it but also the color. First, we eat with the eyes, and I wanted to make this beet recipe as appealing as possible. The brown whole wheat pie dough with tiny thyme leaves here and there completed my goal.
In the end, I’m delighted the way this roasted beets and goat cheese galette recipe turned out. The flaky whole wheat crust, the sweetness of beets, the savoriness of goat cheese, the aroma of balsamic vinegar and thyme leaves and tender roasted onions created the unique complex flavor. This savory galette is a true fall celebration.
Even thou it looks little complicated, but the whole process is very easy. Roast the vegetables, make the pie crust, assemble everything together and bake. The cooking time is longer than active time. But it worth the wait.
Hopefully, the picture and the post inspire you to give beets a chance, and they’ll no longer be a strange vegetable to you.
Happy Cooking 😉
Roasted Beets And Goat Cheese Galette Tips and Tricks:
- This guide will show you How to cut the onion into wedges Method #4.
- Use white whole wheat flour. I haven’t done it yet with regular whole wheat flour. I think it will be too dense.
- If you use regular all-purpose flour, make sure to reduce iced water.
- Use only good quality balsamic vinegar.
- You may need more sugar or honey. It depends on the sweetness of the beets. Some beets are very sweet, some are tasteless. If your beets have to be more on a flat side, bring the flavor back with a bit of brown sugar.
