Wholemeal galette with leek

Ms Aitch doesn't wash her vegetables or fruits. That's it. Sometimes she even is too lazy to wash the salad. Potatoes will be washed only if they are very dirty. She doesn't peel vegetables as well but that's another story.

Mostly it works well. Sometimes not. If Ms Aitch forgets to wash the lamb's lettuce it's a sandy meal. You have to wash lamb's lettuce, even Ms Aitch has to do it. 

It's the same with leek. Inside the beautiful leaves you'll always find some sand or dirt. And who wants to have these inside a galette?



For the dough:

100g wholemeal spelt flour

100g wholemeal buckwheat flour

1 pinch of salt

100g sour cream

130g cold butter


For the topping:

2 leeks

2 tbsp butter

1 shot of white wine

salt and pepper

1 pinch of nutmeg

1 tbsp flour

3 tbsp cream


1 whisked egg


Knead the flour, salt, sour cream and butter with your hands until smooth. At the beginning it can be crumbly. Form a ball and put on a plate into the fridge for about 1 hour.

Wash the leek and cut into pieces. Roast the leek in butter in a pan, add the wine and let simmer on low heat for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with flour and stir well with the cream. The leek should thicken. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg and put aside.

Preheat the oven to 200°C (top-/bottom heat). Roll out the dough to a round shape on a floured surface and put the dough onto a baking tray covered with baking parchment. 

Spread the leek onto the dough but leave blank a border of 5cm. Fold the border up over the leek and brush with egg. 

Bake on the middle rack for about 30-35 minutes. At best you have to eat the galette straight from the oven. But you can eat it also cold or warmed up.

    So geht das nicht Eva! Da kannst du dich ja mit meinem Lieblingsmann zusammen tun ;).
    Ermahne ihn jedes Mal, wenn er wieder vergisst Obst oder Gemüse abzuwaschen.
    Ich hoffe beim Galette hat's nicht geknirscht ;)
    Sieht auf jeden Fall verdammt lecker aus!
    Liebe Grüße,

      Hihi, ja bei uns daheim ist das andersrum ;-) Aber bei der Galette hat es tatsächlich nich geknirscht!
      Viele Grüße, Eva

  • Eine herzhafte Galette steht bei mir schon lange auf der to do Liste... :) Vielleicht endlich ein Anreiz es auch mal zu probieren!
    Und meine Beziehung zu Obst und Gemüse waschen ist nicht so weit von deiner entfernt...

      Liebe Tina,
      die herzhafte Variante lohnt sich definitiv. Probier' es!
      Hihi ich wusste, dass es irgendwo da draußen noch andere Waschmuffel gibt ;-)
      Viele Grüße, Eva
