Take your desserts to the next level with this vegan strawberry galette.
This easy and adaptable vegan galette recipe is the perfect way to make the most out of those seasonal fresh fruits. The combination of the delicate, buttery, and flaky pastry with the fresh and juicy fruit filling is absolutely irresistible. The filling features only a handful of ingredients. These include your choice of seasonal fruit (for this recipe, fresh strawberries were used), granulated sugar, lemon juice and zest, and vanilla extract. Is your mouth watering yet?
This treat can be served cold or warm. But if you do decide to serve it warm, try topping it with a fresh dollop of cream or vegan vanilla ice cream!
Family and friends will be wowed by this simple yet healthy treat and it can be whipped up in no time. You can use a vegan egg wash and demerara sugar on the edges of the pastry to give it a nice shade of brown and some texture. It makes the final galette look really rustic and inviting.
This vegan strawberry galette recipe is so good, you won’t even need a main course.
- 1 ¼ cup plain flour
- ¼ cup + 3 tbsp vegan block butter, chilled (can be substituted with solid coconut oil)
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- (optional “egg wash” – 2 tablespoons soy milk + 1 tablespoon maple syrup)
- (optional 2 tablespoons demerara sugar)
- 1 ½ cup seasonal fruit (I chose strawberries)
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 lemon (juice and zest)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Add flour and butter to a mixing bowl and mash together with a cold metal whisk until it is the consistency of breadcrumbs (you can use your hands but your body heat might start to melt the butter).
Add the sugar, salt and 2 tablespoons of ice cold water and keep mixing/kneading until it is in a smooth ball of dough (do not over work). Cover this dough and rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, slice your strawberries (or other seasonal fruit), and mix with the other filling ingredients.
Pre-heat the oven to 180C.
Cover a clean surface with a dusting of flour and unwrap the pastry. Use a rolling pin to roll the pastry out into a circular disc, about 4mm thick. Place the pastry onto a baking tray lined with parchment.
Place the chopped strawberries in the centre of the pastry leaving a 1-inch gap all the way around the fruit.
Once placed, fold the edges of the pastry inwards, slightly overlapping the sliced fruit. Mix together the soy milk and maple syrup and brush the edges of the galette with the mixture. Sprinkle some Demerara sugar onto these edges for an added rustic effect.
Bake in the over for 30-35 minutes until golden brown.
Decorate with fresh greens and serve warm or cold!
