If you haven’t already guessed by the name of my blog, I love baking! and a lot of the time that means simple comfort foods. Today I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes, a Roasted Veggie Galette. This isn’t your typical galette by any means, some might even call it a pizza. Yellow squash, portobello mushrooms, onions and zucchini are tossed in Pompeian Arbequina Olive Oil and roasted until tender. Then layer the veggies over a soft “pizza dough” crust and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese – it makes a delicious appetizer, lunch or dinner.
I chose the Arbequina Varietal due to its fruity, mild-bodied flavor which makes it perfect for cooking fish or vegetables, something we eat a lot of in my house. Simply slice and toss the veggies in a few tablespoons of the Arbequina olive oil and roast in the oven until tender. The dough for the galette is quick and simple and comes together in less time than it takes to roast the veggies, how great is that!

There are 3 Varietals to choose from, Arbequina, Koroneiki and Picholine – ranging from mild to full-bodied flavors. Each is a mono-varietal extra virgin olive oil that celebrates a single olive variety and with less than .5% acidity you can rest assured that only the highest quality olives are used. One of the really cool things about these new varietals is that you can track the origins of your exact bottle of oil and learn all about the process that goes into creating it. You can learn more, find recipes and even get nutritional information at Pompeian.
Which Varietal will you try first? I’d love to hear what you plan on making. I definitely see some grilled fish and bread baking in my near future. I can’t wait to get back into the kitchen and try out a few new recipes to share with you all soon. I hope you’ll enjoy this Roasted Veggie Galette as much as we do, happy baking!
