A Galette of Winter Greens

February 22, 2013

I have in mind three, maybe four posts on winter greens. Today’s post may inspire you to plant more greens this spring, (and you can have a galette of spring greens).

If you decide to dash to the store to buy greens, wait until you read tomorrow’s post.

Here are some of the greens I used in my galette. The kale picked this week was more robust than a month ago when this picture was snapped. The red frills mustard to the left of the image was a sprightly addition to my galette. I also snatched a handful each of endive and arugula for good measure.

Chard, abundant in the garden now, was half of my greens mix.

And BTW, there’s lot of radicchio. Use what you have and like.

Thanks to Lauri Kranz of Edible Gardens LA for posting the image and link for Galette of Winter Greens which prompted me to gather my greens.

The recipe is from The Yellow House blog, (though I used my own pie crust recipe). You’ll enjoy Sarah’s musings on winter greens and her images are gorgeous. (As in the one at the top of this post).

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post.
