  • ¾ cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup 1% cottage cheese
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • ¼ cup 1% milk
  • 1½ teaspoons sugar
  • 1 egg mixed with 1 tablespoon water, for glaze
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups sliced leeks, (about 2 large) (see Tip)
  • 12 ounces cremini, or baby bella mushrooms, wiped clean and sliced (6 cups)

  1. To prepare crust: Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Puree cottage cheese in a food processor. Add oil, milk and sugar; process until smooth. Add the dry ingredients and pulse 4 to 5 times, just until the dough clumps together. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead several times, but do not overwork. Press the dough into a disk, dust with flour and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare filling: Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add leeks and cook, stirring often, until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. (Add water, if necessary, to prevent scorching.) Add mushrooms and increase heat to medium-high; cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are tender and the liquid has evaporated, 3 to 4 minutes. Let cool.
  3. Whisk egg, sour cream, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add scallions, parsley and the mushroom mixture; toss to coat.
  4. To assemble and bake galette: Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a rough 15-inch circle about ¼ inch thick. Roll it back over the rolling pin and transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Spread the filling over the dough, leaving a 2-inch border all around. Fold the border up and over the filling to form a rim, pleating as necessary. Brush egg glaze over the rim.
  6. Bake the galette until the crust is golden, 25 to 35 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Slide onto a serving platter and serve hot or at room temperature.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Refrigerate for up to 2 days. Reheat on a baking sheet at 350°F for 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Tip: To clean leeks: Trim off fuzzy root and dark green stems. With a sharp knife, cut several incisions in the leek's stem end to open it up like a fan. Soak in water for several minutes, then swish to dislodge dirt. Repeat until no grit remains.
  • Easy cleanup: Recipes that require cooking spray can leave behind a sticky residue that can be hard to clean. To save time and keep your baking sheet looking fresh, line it with a layer of foil before you apply the cooking spray.

I made this according to instructions and made sure to cook off the extra liquid. It turned out perfect and my family loved it. This will be a regular item in our house right next to the sweet potato tart, which is our favorite. Ilene

Wonderful Lunch Option! My crust dough was on the wet side (needed more flour than usual to roll out)...but was one of the easiest to handle. I made the dough and sauteed the leeks and mushrooms the night before, put everything in the fridge, then assembled the next morning. Wonderful results! I will definitely make this again. Pros: Tasty, Easy Crust Cons: A little time-consuming, but worth it
