Hearts of Palm Galette is made with hearts of palm, marinated artichoke hearts, more savory veggies & smoky bacon. The Galette is formed with a rustic, whole grain rye crust. Top it with fresh basil, Buratta cheese & balsamic glaze for a perfect lunch or light dinner.
Disclosure: I was financially compensated to create the recipe for this post and I received product samples. The opinions and recipes are completely my own based on my experience.
I’m so excited to be working with Reese Specialty Products for this Hearts of Palm Galette recipe. Before receiving a box of goodies from Reese, I’d never tasted hearts of palm before. I’m not sure how this happened since I obsessively seek out new ingredients.
Well, now I’m a fan. I love the crisp-crunchy bite and slightly salty flavor of hearts of palm. I’m a huge fan of artichokes in any form, especially artichoke hearts, so I knew these two ingredients would come together and create a great flavor profile.
I could imagine throwing sliced hearts of palm into salads for added crunch, or using them as a topping on tacos or folding them into everyone’s favorite baked artichoke dip. I love to add crunchy ingredients to tuna and egg salad. I’ll definitely be adding chopped hearts of palm to my next batch of tuna salad.
But, since this is a baking blog, I was eager to try hearts of palm in a baked recipe. One of my favorite ways to bake with savory ingredients is to put them into a tart shell or wrap them in a galette. As I’ve said many times, give me any form of fruit wrapped in a crisp crust and I’m a happy camper. Well, I’ll expand that sentiment to include veggies wrapped in a crisp crust.
Because they’re free-form tarts that don’t need a special pan, galettes are super easy to make. They’re supposed to be rustic so you don’t need to worry about a perfectly crimped crust.
Hearts of palm and artichoke hearts give the filling for this galette a chunky, crunchy texture. I think we sometimes forget how important texture is in our food.
As a bonus, hearts of palm are super healthy because they’re low cholesterol and full of potassium and vitamin C. I amped up the nutrition of this recipe with a whole grain rye crust & leafy greens. So, ok, there’s a little bacon in there, but, hey, everything’s better with a little bacon. Am I right?
If you want to make a vegetarian version of this recipe you can leave out the bacon and make the crust with vegetable shortening. For a vegan version, you can also eliminate the Buratta and serve the Galette with a vegan-friendly topping.
