What You'll Need

For the Pastry

  • 1 ¼ cup GF flour blend (we like Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 2 sticks Culcherd Original butter, cold and sliced
  • 6 tbsp water, cold
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp Himalayan pink salt


For the Filling

  • 1 cup asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2 inch pieces 
  • 1 cup artichoke hearts
  • 1 leek, chopped
  • ½ cup fresh peas
  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 package Culcherd Herb & Garlic cheese
  • ¼ cup of your favourite pesto (we love Sunflower Kitchen)
  • 4 tbsp Culcherd Original butter, divided
  • 1 tbsp EVOO
  • ¼ tsp Himalayan pink salt


How To

For the Pastry

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Combine flour and salt in a bowl. Using a pastry cutter, cut in cold butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Stir water and lemon together and add to dry ingredients. Mix until the dough just comes together.
  • Shape into a disk, wrap with parchment paper and chill for an at least hour.


For the Filling

  • Melt 2 tbsp butter and EVOO in a large skillet over medium heat. Add leeks and thyme springs. Cook until softened, about 5 minutes. 
  • Add artichokes, asparagus and fresh peas. Cook for about 3 minutes, until asparagus is bright green.
  • Remove from heat and pluck out thyme springs leaving behind the leaves


For Assembly

  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Roll pastry into a 12 inch round, and arrange on baking sheet. 
  • Spread pesto over pastry leaving a 2 1/2 inch border on all sides. Crumble half of the Culcherd Herb & Garlic over pesto and top with vegetable mixture. Crumble remaining cheese over vegetables.     
  • Brush border of pastry with melted butter and fold edges of dough up over filling, pleating as you go. Brush top of dough with remaining melted butter.
  • Bake galette for 30 minutes or until the pastry and filling have started to brown.
  • Garnish with thyme springs.



  • Make ahead up to 2 days, chilled. Reheat in a 350°F oven for 20 minutes.
