  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup ice water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bunch Swiss chard, stems removed and leaves chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour and salt. Add the cold butter and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Sprinkle the ice water over the mixture and stir with a fork until the dough comes together. Shape the dough into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  4. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the mushrooms and garlic to the skillet and cook until the mushrooms are browned and any liquid has evaporated, about 10 minutes.
  6. Stir in the Swiss chard and cook until wilted, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into a 12-inch circle. Transfer the dough to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  8. Spoon the mushroom and Swiss chard mixture onto the center of the dough, leaving a 2-inch border. Sprinkle the shredded Swiss cheese over the top.
  9. Fold the edges of the dough over the filling, pleating as needed. Brush the crust with a beaten egg for a golden finish.
  10. Bake the galette for 30-35 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Let it cool slightly before slicing and serving.
