Blood Orange Galette
This galette was delicious. And it almost didn’t happen. A few weeks ago I was in Denver on a work trip, my parents live just outside Denver and whenever I head that way I usually extend the trip and visit them for a couple of days. They were having some friends over for dinner the night after I got in, so I offered to make dessert. Sadly, the flu hit my parents house about the same time I did and our dinner party never happened, citrus sat in the produce drawer unused, the roast got put in the freezer, unroasted. I couldn’t stop thinking about this galette though (cardamon crème anglaise!), so later in the week when everyone was feeling better I whipped it up. I’ve been meaning to post it since…but the flu came back with me to L.A., and I’ve been feeling like crap since. So, not much chatter, but I suggest you make this asap.
I used this recipe, including the pastry recipe (without the egg). The local grocery store didn’t have clementines so I used oranges and sprinkled a bit of extra sugar on them.
This is a super easy galette to put together, really, you slice a few oranges, zest a lemon,toss them with some sugar. Done. You’re left with a super colorful, bright, delicious dessert.
I made the cardamom crème anglaise while the galette was in the oven.
