Roasted Pumpkin Galette


The second dessert I made for the Pair of Pumpkins baby shower was a roasted pumpkin galette. I love the dough recipe used by the Tassajara monks that was published in the Monterey County Weekly this summer...with a few adaptations...


1/2 C warm water
2 t active dry yeast
2 pinches of organic granulated sugar
3-1/2 C white whole wheat flour
1 t pink Himalaya salt
2 large eggs
6 T soft butter

Dissolve the yeast and sugar in warm water. Let bloom for 10 minutes.

Add 3 C flour, 2 room temperature eggs, salt, and butter. Beat with a wooden spoon until you form a smooth dough that pulls away from the bowl. It should come together very quickly. Turn out the dough onto a counter and knead in the remaining 1/2 cup flour until smooth and shiny, about five minutes. Put the dough into an oiled bowl and let rise for about one hour. Punch down the dough and let it rise again if you have (or need) the time; I let mine rise for another 40 minutes.

Pull and cajole the dough into a large circle and lay it in a tart pan or pie tin - with at least a 1-2" overhang. Arrange the (sweet) roasted pumpkin on the crust. Dot it with butter. Fold the dough inward to create a free-form galette. Brush the surface with a beaten egg and sprinkle with some organic, raw turbinado sugar.

Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, then turn over down to 350 and bake for another 15 to 30 minutes, until the crust is brown and the filling is bubbling. The bottom of the crust should be golden, crisp and dry. Serve with a dollop of unsweetened whipped cream.

  1. This is a great break from the norm. How much pumpkin did you use? One sugar pumpkin? Or just however much...??

  2. I roasted a whole sugar pumpkin, but just used whatever I needed to cover the bottom on the galette. I used the extra in a pasta sauce.

Caulibits Crni Rižoto (Croatian Black "Risotto") #Whole30

Last week, I participated in the Wine Pairing Weekend event 'New Year, New Wine." I paired Crni Rižoto with Dingac Vinarija’s Pelješac...and you can read my post: here . I was pouring a Croatian wine and decided to make a traditional Croatian dish. Every seafood restaurant in Croatia has a  Crni Rižoto  (black risotto) on its menu.  Crni Rižoto  is risotto dyed black with squid ink; I used cuttlefish ink for the same effect. However, since arborio rice is not Whole30 compliant, I made a version for myself that used caulibits instead of rice. Ingredients 1 C fish stock (or a combination of fish stock and vegetable stock) 1 T olive oil 1 medium shallots, peeled and minced 1 cloves garlic, crushed and minced 1/4 lb shrimp 1/4 lb squid tubes, cleaned and sliced into rings 1/4 lb scallops 1/4 lb clams, scrubbed 1/4 lb mussels, scrubbed 4 C caulibits, or chopped cauliflower 1 T fresh parsley, minced juice and zest from 1 organic lemon 1 t cuttlefish ink

This month the French Winophiles group is looking at affordable wines from Burgundy.  Host Cindy of Grape Experiences wrote: "Burgundy, or Bourgogne, is known for its wines of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir... as well as Aligote, Gamay, Sauvignon, César, Pinot Beurot, Sacy, Melon in lesser quantities. Many of the well-known wines are quite expensive, but there are plenty of values to be found." Read her invitation here. And there won't be a Twitter chat for this event, so you will have to dive into the articles themselves to read about our pairings and findings. Here's the line-up...
