Ingredients 

Crust

  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup grated halloumi
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup cold butter cut into cubes
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Filling

  • 3 tbsp olive oil divided
  • 2 delicata squashes halved, seeds removed, and cut into ½-in slices
  • 1 large onion thinly sliced
  • 6 oz halloumi cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste

Topping

  • egg wash: 1 yolk whisked with 2 tsp water
  • ½ cup pine nuts
  • ¼ cup grated halloumi
  • 1 tsp dried mint
  • ¼ cup pomegranate arils

Instructions 

Crust:

  • Add the flours, halloumi, and salt to a food processor and pulse until combined. Add the cold butter cubes into the food processor and pulse until mixture resembles a sand-like consistency. Add the egg, cold water, and vinegar and pulse until the dough comes together.
  • Remove the dough from the food processor and form it into a disc. Wrap the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Filling

  • While dough is in the refrigerator, prepare the filling. Arrange the delicata squash slices on a large baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tbsp olive oil and salt. Roast for 30 minutes.
  • While squash is roasting, heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a skillet over low heat. Add onion slices and cook until caramelized, stirring occasionally. This should take about 25 minutes.
  • Once squash is roasted and onions are caramelized, add them to a large bowl. Gently mix in halloumi, honey, cayenne, salt, pepper.
  • Remove the dough from the fridge. Roll dough on a floured surface, into a circular shape about ¼-in thick (this doesn't have to be perfect, sine galettes have a "rustic" shape).
  • Place the dough on a parchment lined baking sheet. Add the filling in the center, leaving a 2-inch border of crust. Once all of the filling is added into the center, fold the crust over the top of the filling.
  • Brush the crust with the egg wash. Sprinkle with pine nuts, grated halloumi, and dried mint.
  • Bake the galette until the crust is golden, about 40-50 minutes. Removed from the oven and let cool slightly. Sprinkle with pomegranate arils before serving.
