Zucchini & Ricotta Galette

So this galette is pretty much amazing for a vegetarian, well meat eaters too but this is a great main dish for us Veggies. This is my first time with a savory galette and my only problem was I wish I had made two. It serves 2-3 people, and there was 6 at the dinner table. Luckily there were lots of side dishes for people to have.

I expected to have problems with the crust, only because most people stress about them so it always freaks me out. This one is super easy though, not a problem. I made it the night before too, so its fine sitting in the fridge for more than an hour.

Finally, there is sour cream in the crust. I think this is why I had put off making this recipe. I hate sour cream, detest it. I don't understand the appeal at all, its soured cream. Aghh that just sounds awful. When I go out to Mexcian restaurants, its always "No sour cream, guacamole or meat" and then I get very strange looks. Anyways back to this recipe, you can not taste the sour cream at all. It makes the crust very flaky and one of the best I have had.

Recipe found here!

Julie, your photos are ALWAYS a favourite with me. I used to feel the same way about sour cream long long ago but oh boy a total fan now. The same with Greek yogurt. You wait...it is going to grow on you :-)

Hi there -- You've taken beautiful photos and I'm glad you're enjoying the recipe. The recipe should be sourced, however, to Smitten Kitchen, where it was originally published last year.


Thank you.

Hi I will source it. Sorry I always try to but most of the time can't remember where I found it, so thats why it says under my profile that none of the recipes I created.

I bet you can swap out the sour cream for full-fat Greek yogurt, too, if you really hate the stuff. ;)

Beautiful galette. Perfect for a light supper or company brunch.
