Roasted Vegetable Galette with Olives

This savory galette served as the “main course” of this year’s vegan/vegetarian “no turkey, all sides” Thanksgiving meal. Because the recipe is open to seasonal interpretation, it can easily be made throughout the year. The original recipe (here) included carrots, parsnips, butternut squash, and beets but also suggested eggplant, bell peppers, and zucchini for future variations. Personally, I left out the beets. They may give gorgeous color, but there’s no way I’m going to eat one. This galette reads like it has a lot of steps but it actually requires minimal effort. While the oven is preheating, the dough can be prepared. Then, while the vegetables are oven roasting, the dough can be chilled. Bake everything together into a delicious, free form pie, and it’s “almost” weeknight dinner accessible!

    Galettes are a great thing, both sweet and savory. I like this one, so colorful and with peas!

    You don’t like beets? I consider myself super picky and I LOVE beets. Are you just not a fan? Bad experience? SO curious.

    You made me laugh with your comment about the beets! I love beets, but in this case, they would have clashed. The orange colors are gorgeous all by themselves! This looks just wonderful!

    This does look so lovely and it has so many wonderful vegetables – I’m afraid I would have added the beets – I love them for not only their colour xx

    I know you have a severe aversion to beets that makes me smile every time I read your comments about it. Despite the lack of beets this roasted vegetable tart looks fabulous. Take care, BAM

    I made a fruit galette last weekend (finally)! You know this could be done with a prepared crust and leftover veggies if you are really crunched for time–that would be super easy then!

    Love galettes, but most seem to be for sweets so this is a nice change! Looks really good. Personally I love beets but adding them to this would have made for a rather muddy looking dish. I like what you combined.

    I love the idea of a vegan/vegetarian thanksgiving dinner! We had sushi and vegan pumpkin bread. Sushi was not vegan but at least we didn’t kill a turkey🙂
