Potato and Leek Galette with Watercress

Despite its refined appearance, this crisp galette is a lot like a big potato pancake -- and just as irresistible. It gets its oniony depth from the leek.

Ingredients

  • 1 large russet potato, peeled and grated (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 small leek, white and pale-green parts only, thinly sliced crosswise and rinsed well
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup watercress, trimmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Place potato in a bowl of cold water, and let soak for 10 minutes. Drain well in a salad spinner or squeeze in a clean kitchen towel to remove excess water. Combine potato, leek, flour, nutmeg, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

  2. Step 2

    Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Scatter potato mixture in skillet, and press lightly with a spatula to make sure it holds together. Cook until underside is golden, about 6 minutes. Flip. Raise heat to medium-high. Cook until underside is golden, 4 to 5 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Turn out galette. Toss watercress with lemon juice and 1 1/2 teaspoons oil, and place on top of galette. Slice into 8 wedges.
