Prep Time 30minutes
Cook Time 45minutes
Total Time 1hour15minutes
1small sweet potato
1small yellow onion
2store-bought prepared pie crust
¼Cfinely chopped pecans
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Remove the thyme from the stem and roughly chop. In a small mixing bowl combine the caramelized onions, ricotta, thyme, chopped pecans, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper. Mix well until combined. Set aside while you prepare the vegetables.
Peel the sweet potato. Using a mandoline*, slice the sweet potato and apple into thin rounds. Remove the kale from the stem. Tear into large pieces, similar in size to the apples and sweet potatoes.
Lay down the two pie crusts on the sheet of parchment paper. It's okay if they overlap now since you're going to fold the outer edges up. Spread half of the ricotta mixture onto each pie crust leaving about 2 inches of dough around the edges.
Next, layer a slice of sweet potato, a slice of apple and a piece of kale. You want a little bit of space between each slice to create a fanned-out look. Continue the pattern until you have created a full circle.
Once the veggies are totally assembled, gently fold the edges of the crust up to seal the edges. Dot the top of each galette with 1 Tb of butter cut into four pieces.
Beat 1 egg with 1 tsp of water. Using a pastry brush, brush the outside of the pie crust to ensure a golden brown color once baked. Bake for 45 minutes or until crust is crisp and golden brown.
