This wild mushroom galette is a savory, free-form pie made with ricotta cheese and whatever ‘shrooms you prefer. It looks like a pizza, but with a buttery, flaky crust. This recipe is ideal for a weeknight meatless dinner or for brunch. To ensure perfection, the mushrooms are first cooked using the Anova Precision Oven’s sous vide mode in order to concentrate flavor and get rid of excess moisture. The second cook stage makes use of the oven’s convection mode for an even bake.

Wild Mushroom Galette
4 (1)
2 cups
all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp
granulated sugar
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 oz (12 Tbsp)
cold butter, cut into small cubes
¼ cup
ice water, plus more if needed
1.5 lb
mixed wild mushrooms, torn by hand into bite-size pieces
2 Tbsp
extra-virgin olive oil
4 sprigs
fresh thyme, plus 1/2 teaspoon chopped
2 sprigs
fresh rosemary, plus 1/2 teaspoon chopped
fresh sage leaves, plus 1/2 teaspoon chopped
2 cups
ricotta, drained
1 large
egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon water

1. Make Pastry

Combine the flour, sugar, and 1 teaspoon salt in a food processor. Pulse to combine. Add the butter and pulse until the butter resembles small peas. With the processor running, drizzle in the water. Continue to pulse to form a dough. If needed, drizzle in additional water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together. Shape the dough into a disk, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 3 days. (If refrigerating more than 2 hours, let the dough warm up a bit on the counter before attempting to roll in step 6.)
