Venango County Recipe of the Day: Asparagus Galette With Goat Cheese – Sponsored by Clarion Federal Credit Union.

This asparagus galette could be an appetizer or a side dish!

Ingredients

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
10 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
1 to 3 tablespoons ice water

FILLING:

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
2 medium leeks (white portion only), cut into 1/4-inch slices
2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 pound sliced baby portobello mushrooms
1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 3-inch pieces
1 log (4 ounces) of fresh goat cheese
1 large egg, lightly beaten

Directions

-Place flours and salt in a food processor; pulse until blended. Add butter; pulse until butter is the size of peas. While pulsing, add just enough ice water to form moist crumbs. Shape dough into a disk. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight.

-In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Add leeks and 1 teaspoon salt; cook and stir until softened, 5-7 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook until deep golden brown, 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from pan to a large bowl.

-In the same skillet, heat oil and the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Add mushrooms and remaining 1 teaspoon salt; cook and stir until reduced by half and crispy, about 20 minutes. Add to bowl with leeks.

-Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, bring 8 cups of water to a boil. Add asparagus; cook, uncovered, until the stalks turn bright green, 2-3 minutes. Remove asparagus and immediately drop it into ice water. Drain and pat dry; add to bowl with leeks and mushrooms.

-Preheat the oven to 400°. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 12-in. circle. Transfer crust to a parchment-lined baking sheet.

-Crumble goat cheese over top vegetable mixture. Spoon over crust to within 2 in. of edge. Fold crust edge over filling, pleating as you go and leaving a 6-in. opening in the center. Brush folded crust with beaten egg. Bake until crust is golden brown and cheese is melty, 30-35 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting. Serve warm or at room temperature.
