No, I am not really apple-d out, but I am a little tired of baking with them. Since I promised myself that I would attempt a pie or galette, I got to it yesterday in the midst of not feeling well. I went with a galette recipe from Nicole’s blog to really showcase the apples. Unfortunately, I chopped way too many in a hurried manner, which meant I was left with a big pile of extra slices covering my cutting board. The recipe called for 5 apples, however, I simply could not fit that many into the middle of the dough and made a crumble as well. The only other change was that I used a combination of whole wheat pastry flour and spelt flour. Although the galette was not so beautiful, V found it pretty satisfying.
I didn’t even get a chance to take a photograph until after it was half eaten.
I’ve said it before, but I am not really a pie person, and enjoyed the upside down cake more because of the complex texture and flavors. This, however, was wonderfully simple.
The veggie cravings have been abundant.
The baby spinach was topped with the leftover black bean-corn-onion-green pepper mixture from the stuffed spaghetti squash, mung bean sprouts, roasted broccoli, beets, and brussels, our garden tomatoes and radishes, and avocado. I then drizzled on some balsamic vinaigrette made with dijon, balsamic, olive oil, salt, and pepper. This was exactly what the doctor ordered.
Now, I am off to Ikea but I have more to share from yesterday featuring this lovely lady and a new-to-me vegetarian restaurant.
