A galette is essentially a pie that is baked without a pan. It’s not quite a tart, because the sides are pleated, forming a “crust”. This Wild Mushroom Galette is a savory dish made with mixed mushrooms. Feel free to use whatever combination you like. We Sous Vide the mushrooms first to get rid of excess moisture, which will make your bottom crust soggy. It looks like a pizza, but with a buttery, flaky crust and a layer of creamy ricotta cheese. Baking this dish in the Anova Precision Oven is fun, easy, and yields fantastic results. This recipe is ideal for a weeknight meatless meal or as a brunch course.

Steps

1. Assemble puff pastry

Stir together flour, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl. Using a food processor or a pastry cutter, cut in chilled cubed butter until butter resembles small peas. Add 1/4 cup ice water. Process. Stir in up to 1/4 cup more ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, just until dough comes together. Shape dough into a disk, and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Chill at least 2 hours or up to 3 days.

3. Prep mushrooms

In a small bowl or a sheet pan, tear the mushrooms. Tearing mushrooms preserves the muscle-like fibers and provides a much better texture on cooking. Season with salt, pepper and herb sprigs. Drizzle olive oil and toss until all ingredients are well combined.

4. Sous Vide Mushrooms

Sous Vide the mushrooms at 185F for 30 minutes. This method helps release some of the moisture which prevents your galette from being soggy. Remove from oven when done. Discard herb sprigs and let cool for about 15 minutes.
