Butternut Squash and Leek Galette

Servings: 4 to 6

Sautéing the leeks with crushed red pepper flakes gives this savory-sweet galette just enough heat to keep each bite interesting. Aromatic thyme makes it feel right at home alongside turkey, though some may choose to enjoy a slice as their vegetarian Thanksgiving main. The recipe is easily doubled.


For the galette dough

  • 5-1/2 oz. (1-1/4 cups) all-purpose flour; more for rolling
  • 1-1/2 oz. (1/3 cup) fine or medium yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbs. kosher salt
  • 3 oz. (6 Tbs.) unsalted butter, cold, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup cold water

For the filling

  • 3-1/2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 3 thyme sprigs, plus 1 tsp. chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 large leeks, trimmed, cut lengthwise into quarters, then sliced thinly crosswise to yield 2 cups
  • 1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 oz. fresh goat cheese
  • 1 Tbs. finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large egg beaten with 2 tsp. water or cream
  • Flaky sea salt
  • Balsamic glaze, for serving (optional)

    I was very excited to try this recipe. The filling is great. However, beware - the 1 Tbs. kosher salt in the dough is an error. Should be 1 tsp. Unfortunately, this made the crust inedible. I will definitely try this recipe again with the correct amount of salt in the dough.
