This Vegan Rustic Strawberry Galette is the vegan version of my Rustic Strawberry Galette! OH MY GOODNESS I am so excited that I was able to recreate it so closely to the original, because I have to admit, I thought it just couldn’t be done (so glad I was wrong!!). It is just as delicate and luscious–a perfect summer dessert when strawberries are in season! This makes a small galette, enough for 8 nice slices. I make it with all sorts of fruit in season, take a look at my fresh apricot one, and oh WOW with fresh figs below! YUM!
Check out the little video clip below, to see how I make it in my kitchen–crazy easy!
Vegan Rustic Strawberry Galette
This Vegan Rustic Strawberry Galette is the vegan version of my Rustic Strawberry Galette! It is just as delicate and luscious–a perfect summer dessert when strawberries are in season!
- 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/4 cup confectioner sugar
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 cup white wine
- 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 Tbsp almond meal
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 10-12 medium strawberries rinsed and sliced
- 1 tsp granulated sugar
Preheat oven 400F
Place all the dough ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and process until a soft ball forms (30 seconds). The dough will be sticky, that's OK--sprinkle it with a little flour (no more than 1 Tbsp flour), enough to gather it in your hands and make it into a ball.
Place it on a piece of parchment paper and using a rolling pin, gently roll into a circle about 7 inch in diameter--it doesn't have to be perfect.
Transfer onto baking sheet.
Mix applesauce, almond meal and vanilla extract and stir well with a spoon until thoroughly mixed.
Spread the custard evenly over the dough to within about 1/2 inch of the edge.
Spread the sliced strawberries in one layer, no need to arrange them in any way, they will be naturally beautiful.
Fold the edge of the dough up over the berries to create a little border (see little video clip below).
Sprinkle the granulated sugar on top of the strawberries and folded edge.
Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until the strawberries are juicy and tender and the crust is golden.
…and here it is, when I take the time to display the strawberries beautifully….WOW!!!!
