3/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill unbleached all-purpose flour

3/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill whole wheat flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

10 tablespoons cold butter

1/41/2 cup of ice water

Sweet Potatoes

2 medium sweet potatoes

1 tablespoon olive oil

½ teaspoon salt 


½ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley

¼ cup toasted walnuts

Pinch of salt

Chili Oil

¼ cup olive oil

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper


  • To start, prep the crust: Place the flours and salt in a bowl and stir to combine. Grate the butter into the bowl and toss with your hands, rubbing the butter into the flour for about 30 seconds. Add enough of the cold water to bring the dough together in a shaggy ball that is not too firm and not too sticky. Shape into a disk and wrap in plastic or beeswax paper. Refrigerator for 20 minutes. 
  • While the dough is chilling, scrub the sweet potatoes well and pat dry. Using a mandoline, slice the sweet potatoes into ⅛” thick slices. Place in a bowl and toss with olive oil and salt. 
  • Heat your oven to 400˚F. Remove the dough and transfer it to a lightly floured surface. Roll into about a 14” circle and transfer to a sheet tray covered with parchment. Starting from the center, begin to layer the sweet potatoes around, leaving about a 2” space on the edges. Continue layering until you’ve used all the sweet potatoes. 
  • Begin to fold and pleat the edges of the crust over the sweet potatoes. Brush with olive oil or melted butter if desired then transfer to the oven. Bake for about 45 minutes until the crust is golden and the sweet potatoes are soft.
  • While the galette is baking, chop the parsley and walnuts together until both are finely minced. Transfer to a bowl and toss in a bit of salt. In a small skillet, add the olive oil and heat until hot. Place the crushed red pepper in a heat-safe bowl and pour the oil over. Let sit until the galette is done.
  • Before serving, drizzle with the chili oil and sprinkle the parsley mixture generously.
