Need a nice side dish for your spring/summer menu? This tomato basil galette is perfect- it’s easy to make, it incorporates seasonal tomatoes and fresh herbs. Pair this with grilled chicken or fish. I enjoyed it right out of the oven and cold as leftovers. This was my first time making a Galette and it was super easy. Don’t you love when something so fancy looking is so easy to make?

What is a galette you might ask? From the web “Galette is a general term used in French to designate various types of flat, round or freeform crusty cake or tart”. It can be sweet or savory. I just adore tomato and basil together- you could definitely change up the cheese and toppings for this recipe. Just make sure to use what’s in season!

The packers are here so I will make this a quick post before they take my computer away from me! Have a great week!

Tomato, Feta and Basil Galette

INGREDIENTS:

  • INGREDIENTS:
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 3 1/2 Tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 3 tablespoons ice water
  • 1 pint jewel box tomatoes or multicolored pear tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup small basil leaves

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Combine flour, cornmeal, butter, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a food processor; process until the mixture resembles coarse meal. With processor on, slowly add ice water through food chute, and process just until combined (do not form a ball). Gently press the mixture into a 4-inch circle on heavy-duty plastic wrap. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°. Unwrap dough, and roll dough into a 10-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Place dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  3. Arrange tomatoes, cut sides up, on top of dough, leaving a 1 1/2-inch border. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Fold edges of dough over tomatoes to partially cover. Bake at 425° for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle evenly with cheese. Bake an additional 5 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes, and sprinkle with basil. Cut into 8 wedges.
