Rhubarb Cardamom Galette

This dessert is far from the ordinary, but completely worth the effort for the phenomenal flavor. A French-inspired pastry with a mild tart flavor and hint of pungent spice give you a simply unique Western-instilled treat.

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 12 ounces rhubarb (about 8 thin or 3 thick stalks)


1. Preheat oven to 425° with a rack set on lowest level. Unfold pastry onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. In a small bowl, mix together 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, the brown sugar, cardamom, and flour. Evenly sprinkle sugar mixture over pastry.
