If you love pie, you’ll love galette. There are a few different types, but generally, in the US, a galette refers to a rustic flat, round pastry filled with fruits or savory ingredients. They’re easy to make and even easier to enjoy—especially when they’re packed with delicious plant-based ingredients. Find some of our favorite vegan galette recipes below.

What is the difference between a pie and a galette?

A galette is basically pie’s sister, or cousin, perhaps. Making one involves simply laying out the pastry, spreading your ingredients, and folding the edges over the filling, like a tart. The center is left exposed, which helps to create the look of a simple yet elegant dish. Like pies, galettes can be sweet or savory, depending on your preference. Fruit galettes are a particular favorite in the US thanks to their charming, bright and colorful appearance. Common fillings include apples, berries, and peaches, for example. That said, savory galettes filled with ingredients like mushrooms or leafy greens are also equally delicious.
