I'm enjoying tasty peaches this summer and as much as I eat them fresh I'm also using them in recipes like Vegan Peach Cobbler, Peach Mango Smoothie and White Peach Smoothie. 

Vegan Peach Galette

One thing I love about a galette is how rustic it looks, and how easy it is to prepare, perfect for a summer brunch. I decided to prepare a vegan and gluten-free version of this classic peach dessert for my guests and everyone loved it. I made my homemade Gluten-Free Vegan Pie Crust and added peach slices tossed with sugar, cornstarch, vanilla, and salt. So easy yet it tastes amazing!

What Is A Galette?

A galette is a flat round pastry filled with fruits or savory ingredients baked on a cookie sheet, it comes from the French word Galet which means, 'a smooth flat pebble'. 

Making a pie or a tart from scratch may be daunting because of having to prepare the crust and fit it in a pie plate or tart pan. However to prepare a galette, there is no need for a pie plate or tart pan, it is a freeform version of a pie, you are basically folding the crust or encircling it around the filling.

How To Make Peach Galette?

Tips For Making Vegan Peach Galette

  1. If you are using my homemade pie crust, remember that it is gluten-free so it lacks the elasticity that regular wheat flour pie crust has, you have to gently bring the crust up and around the filling.
  2. if some of the dough tears, just press then together as much as you can. It is part of the rustic uneven nature of the galette, when baked you will be surprised how great the crust is.
  3. Have your children help you make galette since it is such a fun way to get them involved and love cooking!
