A Beautiful Plate

Mushroom Galette

Rustic and flavorful, this cremini and shiitake mushroom galette is filled with sharp blue cheese and wrapped in a flaky sour cream pastry dough. This homemade mushroom tart is great for entertaining! 

Mushroom Galette with Blue Cheese on Cutting Board

I’m never opposed to eating pie for dinner (remember this butternut squash pie?) and this mushroom galette makes it feel almost virtuous. 

A sour cream pastry crust is folded over a rich blue cheese mushroom filling and baked until golden brown. The blue cheese adds a sharp, salty tang, while the mushrooms add heft to this rustic vegetarian tart. 

Baking is my love language, particularly this time of year, but homemade pastry dough can be laborous and time intensive. Galettes are a great and easy compromise. While you’ll need to reserve time for preparing and chilling the dough, the free-form crust is very forgiving. 

Elegant and hearty, this tart can be served warm or at room temperature any time of day, making it great for holiday entertaining.
