Strawberry and Pistachio Galette

When I went to the supermarket this week, I found some beautiful plump, red strawberries on sale.  It immediately reminded me of a recipe for a strawberry and pistachio galette that I had seen in The New York Times earlier in the week.

Fortuitously, I already had pistachios in my stash, so making this galette was a no brainer once I saw the strawberries.

And isn't the finished product a beauty:

The outside was crunchy even absent the extra pistachios, and the inside was a dream mix of contrasting textures and flavours. I skipped the extra strawberries and icing sugar on top as I was taking it to work. Although some people were unsure what it was (I heard "breakfast pizza" mentioned), it was snapped up at morning tea time - a good sign.

If you have some nice strawberries about, I can highly recommend making this galette.

Oh yes, I have nomstrawberries, but I shall buy some tomorrow. That looks so delicious and you are right, the strawberries are plump and sweet now. I think this would make a perfect breakfast!!

Looks good and you got strawberries in the winter months.

It's very much strawberry season here (albeit the tail end) so this is great inspiration! Thanks.
