What is a Vegetable Galette?

Galettes are types of French pastries. They come in different varieties including circular cakes, free-form pies, buckwheat crepes, and large, soft cookies. Most variations are sweet, but they can be savory, too! 

Unlike other pastries, galettes are shaped and baked right on a baking sheet. The edges are folded over to create a crust and hold in the filling. As a result, the top of the galette is open so you’re able to get a peek at the filling. 

Mediterranean-Inspired Ingredients

Below is an overview of the ingredients and instructions for this recipe. Don’t forget to scroll down to the recipe card below for the complete details and instructions! 

  • Puff Pastry – Find this in the frozen or refrigerated section of your local grocery store. If frozen, just make sure to thaw it first! 
  • Cheese – Ricotta cheese forms the base of the layers. Then, we incorporated crumbled feta for a creamy texture and a tangy taste. 
  • Vegetables – Sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and grape tomatoes add lots of color, nutrients, and a bold, savory flavor. 
  • Olives – We use a combination of green olives and kalamata olives to add a briny flavor. 
  • Seasonings – Salt, pepper, and dried oregano enhance the savoriness of the ingredients. 
  • Olive Oil – This helps caramelize the veggies and adds a peppery taste! 
  • Egg – A whisked egg is brushed over the puff pastry, creating a crisp golden crust. 

Roll, Top, and Bake! Your New Favorite Meal is Ready in Minutes

Preheat your oven before you begin, allowing it plenty of time to get nice and hot! 

  1. Prepare the puff pastry. Roll the pastry into an even layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper
  2. Layer. Spread the ricotta cheese evenly on top. Layer on the veggies, olives, and feta cheese. Then, add the seasonings and a drizzle of olive oil. 
  3. Create a border. Fold in the edges of the pastry, creating a crust. Then, brush the egg wash over the pastry border. 
  4. Bake. Transfer the vegetable galette to the preheated oven. Bake until the pastry is golden brown and crisp. 
  5. Garnish. Allow the galette to cool for a few minutes. Then, add a garnish of baby arugula and more olives along with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Enjoy!

Serving Suggestions

We think this galette makes for an amazing vegetarian meal when served solo! However, you can also pair it with sides and appetizers like tomato and burrata salad, marinated tomatoes and feta dip, or crockpot spinach and artichoke dip

Or, it can also serve as a beautiful side dish with main courses such as shrimp kofta meatballs, Greek lemon chicken, or beef kofta

Common Questions About This Mediterranean Vegetable Galette Recipe? 

Is galette dough the same as pie dough? 

Yes, most galette recipes feature pie dough that is rolled out into a flat slab. For this recipe, we use puff pastry to keep things super easy! 

What are the three different types of galette? 

The three most common types of galette are galette Breton, galette de rois, and fruit galette. A galette Breton is a buckwheat crepe. A galette de rois is a type of flat cake made with pastry dough. Finally, a fruit galette is a freeform pie shaped around the filling. 

How do you keep the bottom of a galette from getting soggy? 

If you’re worried about your galette becoming soggy, brush egg wash over the pastry before adding the filling. 

Can I store leftovers for later? 

This recipe is best enjoyed right away. However, if you have leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. Just keep in mind that the longer your galette sits, the more likely it is to become soggy! 

Reheat leftovers in the oven just until warm.

    1. You could try cottage cheese for the ricotta, but we haven’t tested it and can’t guarantee the results. Feel free to sub any cheese you like best for the feta!

  1. I’m excited to try this! wondering if it can be done in the air fryer? helpful hints on doing so would be great!

    1. Hi! If your air fryer is big enough we think it would work. Preheat it as usual, and keep a close eye on the galette as the cooking time may vary. We’d love to know how it goes if you try it out!

  2. I am invited to a brunch can I serve this at room temperature as I will bake home ..thank you

  3. In the pictures it looks like you baked it in a frying pan not on a baking sheet? Would a cast iron frypan be a better option?

  4. do you put the egg wash on the outside of the pastry or the inside to stop it from being soggy??

    1. We brush it over the top! If you’re worried about the pastry becoming soggy, you can brush the egg wash on the bottom before adding the fillings, too.

      1. So o made this recipe and it was delicious but the bottom did seem like it didn’t cook enough. Could I bake it for a few minutes before adding the topping?

        1. Yes, just be careful not to burn! You could also try brushing the bottom with egg wash before adding the toppings.
