Tomato and Goat Cheese Galette
The other night Judy made this tomato and goat cheese galette for dinner, and it was delicious. It would be even more delicious with home-grown or farmer’s market tomatoes instead of supermarket tomatoes, but it’s February, so there you are. She got the recipe here. The recipe called for thyme and she didn’t have any, so she used zaatar (a spice mix that includes thyme), then threw in some sumac powder for good measure.
Judy says the key to making this successfully is slicing the tomatoes thinly, otherwise they will stay too juicy.
A quick postscript. Am I the only person who feels an urge to snicker when hearing the words “goat cheese”? I mean, goat cheese is delicious, but if someone had mentioned it to me when I was 15 (I was born in 1958), I would have snickered. And even today, it just sounds weird to my unsophisticated inner self. Of course, I also think boiled tongue and creamed herring are perfectly normal, so what do I know? But what about you, are there foods you enjoy today that you would have laughed at while growing up?
