If you’ve been following my blog long enough, you know that I’m not one for super complicated and time-consuming recipes! Instead, I’m constantly creating my own quick (and healthier) recipes for our family. Making up my own recipes indulges my adventurous side, as I love to work with recipes from all different types of cuisine!
I’m so excited to share this Blueberry Lemon Galette recipe with you! It was a HUGE hit with the boys (and the grown-ups too of course!). One of my favorite things about this recipe is that (like a trifle), it looks a lot more complicated to make than it really is.
Inspired by the galette de rois (French cake/pastry), the recipe I have included below is a crowd pleaser and takes no more than 10 minutes to assemble and about 15-20 minutes to bake! I love sharing recipes from different cultures that expose both myself and my family to new tastes from around the globe.
Frozen Fruits and Vegetables are Fresh and Budget-Friendly
One of my budget-saving tips for eating a real food/healthy diet is to use frozen fruits and vegetables. For this galette, I chose Nature’s Touch Frozen Organic Wild Blueberries. Frozen wild blueberries are great for baking, and are often more affordable than the fresh counterparts– especially when the fruit is not in season! Since they are frozen, you don’t have to worry about them perishing before you can use them on your next flavor adventure.
Frozen fruit is also a super fresh option since it’s picked and packed right after harvesting. With our global agricultural economy, it can be days before your “fresh” produce ever reaches the supermarket shelves! By freezing them right after harvest, frozen fruits and veggies maintain great nutritional value.
Nature’s Touch Frozen Fruits and Vegetables
Nature’s Touch has a full line of frozen fruits and vegetables, and I purchase mine at Shaw’s. I love to purchase organic fruits and vegetables whenever possible, but it can be expensive, so I love that Nature’s Touch also has pesticide-free wild blueberries and mangoes.
You can find Nature’s Touch frozen fruits and vegetables at ShopRite and Shaws (at my store they were located in the frozen fruit and vegetable aisle, NOT in the natural foods section). You can also shop Nature’s Touch at Big Y for the frozen veggies. Here are just a few of their available products:
- Organic Mangos
- Pesticide-Free Mangos
- Organic Blueberries
- Pesticide-Free Wild Blueberries
