Mushroom Goat Cheese Spinach Galette

I like to cook with mushrooms. They add a lovely texture when meat is not on the menu. When I’m pressed for time or just not up for making crust from scratch, it’s always nice to use a ready made pie crust.

Yes I know a homemade pie crust does not compare however I never said I was perfect. So let me start by making you a promise. I will share a pie crust recipe with you in 2014. Sound good?

I might be stretching the definition of a galette but I did look it up and it explains a galette as being a flat round cake of pastry or bread. So I say this fits. 

This appetizer is made in just under 40 minutes and looks fabulous. After all we first eat with our eyes. It has to look good. 

Happy New Year 2014! and keep cooking :)
