A Three-Ingredient Nectarine Galette

Farm-Fresh Nectarines

While we eat great dinners often around here, dessert is frequently neglected. It’s just too easy to pop out the door for a cupcake or a cone of gelato. But now, there are no more excuses. This three-ingredient fruit galette has changed dessert at our house for the better—and hopefully will at yours, too.

It requires virtually no prep, can be made with almost any fruit and is ready in just under an hour. By the time you prepare and eat your dinner, dessert is served!

Three-Ingredient Nectarine Galette in progress

We used nectarines, but simplicity means versatility, so substitute in whatever fruit strikes your fancy. We can’t wait to try it with apricots, but cherries, berries, and apples will yield just as decadent of a dessert.

The finished product is just as good as what you might find at your neighborhood bakery—sweet tender fruit and a not-too-sweet crust, crisp with sugar. Perfect for a summer BBQ or a quiet dinner at home!

We were asked a few weeks ago to start contributing weekly recipes to Chef Marcus Samuelsson’s site—this week is our first contribution. He’s a fantastic chef (check out Red Rooster in Harlem) so we were extremely flattered when we were asked to contribute.

    I have no idea how I stumbled on to this, but that doesn’t matter. I think this is a beautiful site, and I’m so glad I did!

    It’s funny. Today I was going to buy the ingredients to make a raw vegan apple pie and seeing this recipe and the pictures were a nice little reminder ;)

    XO!

    Wow, what a beautiful and simple recipe! Thank you! I had some pie crust in the freezer, and can’t believe I made this recipe lickety-split! (Dessert gets neglected at our house as well… but I’m learning and trying…) :) Cheers on posting to Chef Samuelsson’s blog! So fantastic!

    Everything about this is absolutely perfect! What an honor to be selected by Marcus Samuelsson! We’ve been longtime fans of Red Rooster! It’s one of our favorite spots in Harlem! We just love the Fried Yard Bird! Love seeing your posts over at Samuelsson’s site, especially the Lobster with Linguine and Mint!
