CITRUS GALETTE


The market is flooded with citrus of all shapes and sizes. It is so exciting to use the freshest oranges and grapefruits to make my desserts this season. I wanted to make a whole wheat dessert that did not take too much effort. I made a simple dough using oats and 24 Mantra Organic's whole wheat flour and organic sugar. Sliced some oranges and grapefruits and made a rustic galette in my skillet. That's what I love about making galettes- it doesn't have to be perfect. I call it a lazy man's pie. It tastes like a pie (and even better with organic products) and takes no work! 

INGREDIENTS- 

  • 3/4 cup organic whole wheat flour

  • 1/2 cups old fashioned oats

  • 3 tbsp organic sugar

  • 1/3 cup cold butter, cubed

  • 1 tbsp cold water

  • 1 orange and grapefruit, sliced

  • brown sugar, to sprinkle.

PROCEDURE-

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C.

  • In a food processor, combine flour, oats, sugar and cold butter. Pulse until the mixture resembles a course meal.

  • Add water and mix until the dough begins to come together.

  • Transfer the dough onto a plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  • Roll out the chilled dough on a lightly floured surface.

  • Transfer the dough to a skillet. Place orange and grapefruit slices and fold over the edges over the fruit.

  • Sprinkle with brown sugar

  • Bake at 180C for 20 minutes or until the crust is golden-brown.
