I am a huge, huge, HUGE fan of jicama! I love that it’s a root vegetables that acts like a fruit. Low in natural sugar, crunchy like an apple, and delicious both raw and cooked. I love it shredded in a coleslaw, spiralized like noodles, diced and added to salad, sliced into sticks and roasted, and now I’m adding dessert to the list! Basically, anywhere I can use apples, I’m totally adding jicama! This galette is first with it’s flakey rustic crust and a mildly sweet filling of thinly sliced gala apples and jicama. You got it! Jicama!
Dessert doesn’t get much easier than a galette. The crust is meant to be super rustic so you don’t have to fuss with it too much. It’s imperfections are what makes it so perfect! You can make your own crust in only 5 minutes or you can use store bought. The choice is yours!
I love to add a little extra something by brushing the raw crust with honey (or pure maple syrup) and sprinkling it with turbinado sugar. You can also use white sugar but that extra crunch from the larger sugar crystals is so worth it! Demerara sugar is another great option.
