This delicious No-potato Galette is easier to make than it looks! That means if you are trying to impress anybody with your awesomeness as a cook, you can lay this baby down on the table next to a succulent meat dish, and be all smug about it. 😀Jump to Recipe
By definition, a galette is a flat round cake, or pastry – OR – any food prepared in said shape. Potatoes are used frequently. But those dang nightshades! They can be so bothersome to some people (ahem, me 🙋🏼♀️). Japanese sweet potatoes to the rescue! Those are the ones with kind of a purple-y skin, but a white flesh. Before you ask, I haven’t tried white sweet potatoes, which is what I use in my AIP Mashed Potatoes. I went with the Japanese ones because they don’t seem quite as dense as white sweet potatoes, and thus able to soften a little better.
Um, duck fat…?
Some of you may raise an eyebrow at one certain ingredient: duck fat. I know! I have had a bit of an “unpleasant” response to it in the past myself. But then Laura Morrow, founder of the company Simply AIP, contacted me asking, “Hey, do you have a recipe that uses duck fat?” Duck fat is in this month’s subscription box, and she needed a recipe to go along. Now, honestly, heretofore I have disliked duck fat. BUT. I do SOOOOOOO love a creative challenge! I set out to make a recipe that uses duck fat that I would actually like. So that’s how this recipe came to be. And if you are a Simply AIP subscriber*, you will see a recipe card in your box this month (January 2019) with this recipe! 😀
Try something new! Enjoy your cooking! Be a food adventurer! And have an absolutely fantastic day!
