This recipe was entered in The Foodista Best of Food Blogs Cookbook contest, a compilation of the world’s best food blogs which was published in Fall 2010.


1 tablespoon sea salt
10 tablespoons brown rice flour (or regular)
1 can plain artichoke hearts, chopped
1 teaspoon chili flakes
3 teaspoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1/4 cup fresh goat cheese (or cheese of your choice)


Peel and thinly slice the eggplant. Place in a drainer or bowl and toss with sea salt. Let it sit for one hour for the bitter juices to be drawn out. Rinse under running water to remove the salt and squeeze tightly with your hands to remove excess water. Place in a mixing bowl.
In a medium bowl, beat eggs with flour to make a thick paste. If paste is thin, add extra flour. Mix well till the mixture is smooth. Stir in eggplant & artichoke hearts and mix till they are well coated.
Add rosemary, chili flakes, garlic and season to taste with sea salt and pepper (be careful not to add too much salt) . Add goat cheese and mix carefully so not to cream it... you want them to be chunky.
Heat a large oiled pan. When hot, pour about 2 spoonfuls of mixture into the pan and they should form into galletes or "cakes". Cook until both sides are golden brown.

This recipe is HORRIBLE! I cannot believe that I actually spent time and money to make it, what a disappointment! Did anyone test this before making it public? 10 cups of flour, I used 4 added an extra egg and it was still tough and rubbery. How about stating the prep/cook time and the quantity this recipe will yield? This was a total waste of time, money and food as far as I am concerned and I sincerely hope nobody else makes this terrible meal!

Hello Mollie... I actually made and tested this recipe several times before posting it. It has been well like by many. I would like to point out that the recipe calls for 10 TABLESPOONS of flour, NOT 10 cups. Please take time to re-read the recipe before posting a comment like yours above. When something doesn't seem right, you should look first and see if you made an error. I'm sorry it didn't turn out good for you, but you are the first to say that while others have told me they loved it. The recipe makes about 8-10 galettes... more or less. Have a good day.


Serve as a side with anything Italian or with a salad for lunch.
