Perfect vegan peach galette

This peach galette is a delicious summer dessert that is perfect for any occasion. The galette dough is made with whole wheat flour, and vegan butter, and is filled with fresh peaches, and a touch of sugar.

The galette is then baked until the dough is golden brown and the peaches are tender. Serve this galette warm or cold, with a scoop of vegan ice cream or whipped cream.

About the peach galette recipe

A galette is a type of French pastry that is similar to a pie, but the dough is not as thick and the filling is not as formal. Galettes can be made savory or with any type of fruit, but peaches are a classic summer choice.

I developed this recipe as simple as possible for two reasons, so you can make it as often as possible and learn it by heart. And because peaches are so good and delicious. They are not an expensive stone fruit and go well with other fruits.

So if you have ripe peaches, that are not as firm to use in a salad or other recipes make a galette. If you have ripe berries, apples, or prunes add them to the peach galette, it will be perfect and delicious.





What you need

  • Flour, I use all-purpose flour (affiliate link) but you can use any flour you like. If you use whole wheat or spelt flout the crust won’t be as flakey as with all-purpose, but for sure will be delicious.
  • Sugar, use cane sugar, I usually look for one that is vegan.
  • Vegan butter, substitute with solid coconut oil if you don’t like vegan butter.
  • Iced water, is really important. Make the iced water first and then measure what you need
  • Peaches, ripe, perfect and sweet
  • Vanilla, you can use vanilla extract or vanilla paste or powder. The less liquid you use in your galette the better.

Tips on how to make the vegan galette

  • The crust is the easiest thing to do and you can make it by mixing all the ingredients with your hands or with a food processor (affiliate link). If you use your hands you can use the same bowl for the whole dessert.
  • In the apple galette recipe, you can see the step-by-step process to prepare the dough.
  • The thinner you cut the peaches the less time the galette will spend in the oven.
  • When rolling the dough roll it around ⅛ inch thick or just slightly thicker. This will prevent it from leaking.
  • If you want a extra crispy crust, let it cool down on a baking rack.
  • It is best if you roll the dough over a silicon mat or over a piece of parchment paper, that way the galette won’t stick and you won’t have to wash an extra piece of cookware.

tips for making the best galette

  • Start with a delicious, flaky pie crust. This is the foundation of a great galette!
  • Choose your fruit or filling wisely. A galette is a perfect vehicle for showcasing seasonal fruit or a unique filling.
  • Be mindful of the ratio of fruit to crust. Too much fruit will make for a soggy galette, while too little will make the crust the star of the show.
  • Use a vegan egg wash to brush the crust before baking. This will give your galette a beautiful, golden brown hue. I use coconut cream or other full fat vegetable milk.
  • Enjoy your galette warm, with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

Equipment

  • Food processor

Ingredients
 
 

Crust

  • cup flour
  • ½ cup vegan butter
  • pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup iced water

Filling

  • 5 peaches
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

*optional

  • 2 tablespoons coconut cream or other full fat vegetable milk
  • 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar

Instructions
 

  • Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Make your dough. Add the flour, salt, and butter to your food processor (affiliate link). Pulse until it resembles wet sand. Then, let the food processor (affiliate link) run at a slow speed while you add the ice water. In about 30 seconds, you should have a perfect and manageable pie crust. Wrap in kitchen plastic and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  • Cut the peaches into wedges and put them in a bowl. Add the 2 tablespoons flour, sugar and the vanilla, mix well.
  • Remove the dough from the refrigerator and spread it on a silicone mat or a piece of parchment paper. Put the peaches in the center, leave one inch of dough without the peaches.
  • Fold in the edges of the dough and cover the peaches. Brush the edges with the coconut cream and sprinkle with turbinado sugar on the edges of the galette.
  • Put in the oven for 20 min. or until you see the peaches are super soft and have a boiling syrup around them and the crust begins to brown.
