What is Galette?

Galette is a french pastry that can be either made sweet or savory with edges roughly folded in to create a gorgeous, rustic-looking bake.

The word “galette” comes from the Norman word “gale”, meaning flat cake. Galettes are usually do have a very rustic look, meaning that they are usually flat round or freefrom cursty cakes. However, in the case of a Breton galette the dish is prepared with a pancake batter that usually contains buckwheat flour. In addition, galettes are also usually pretty adaptable making in fairly popular. The key is to simply roll out your pastry, top with your filling and fold it up roughly before popping it in the oven.

Ingredients you will need

  • Tomatoes: I used cherry tomatoes for this recipe, because I personally do enjoy the mild and sweet flavor they have. However, you can use regular tomatoes as well or even mix the two.
  • Thyme: Provides a fresh flavor to the galette. I recommend using fresh thyme.
  • Flour: I used regular all-purpose flour.
  • Yeast: Yeast is needed for the dough. It helps the dough to rise.
  • Olive Oil: Also needed for the dough.
  • Salt & Pepper: Enhances the flavor.
  • Cashews: I used cashews as the base for the vegan cream that is placed under the tomatoes.
  • Nutritional Yeast: Needed for the cream as well. Provides the cheesy flavor that goes great with the tomatoes.
  • Garlic: Adding garlic does make everything better right?
  • Lemon Juice: Also needed for the cream.
