Vegetable Galette

This flavourful veggie pancake makes an impressive and pretty main course. It's easy on the wallet too! Big kids can help by grating the veggies and cheese.


  • 1 medium sweet potato

  • 1 medium carrot

  • 1 leek, white part only

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 3 eggs

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • 1 1/2 cups lightly packed grated Swiss, or cheddar, about 5 oz (140 g)

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek-style or Balkan yogurt

  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard


  • Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Grate sweet potato and measure out 3 cups (750 mL). Grate carrot and measure out 1 cup (250 mL). Squeeze both dry with paper towels and place in a bowl. Thinly slice leek and add to grated vegetables. Toss all with flour.

  • In a small bowl, whisk eggs with salt and pepper. Stir into grated veggies. Stir in cheese. Press into a greased 9 in (23 cm) pie plate. Bake in centre of oven until deep golden, 35-45 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, stir yogurt with Dijon. When galette is baked, let cool 5 minutes. Slice into wedges, top each with a dollop of yogurt sauce, and serve.
