Vegan Apple Galette
A galette is one of those desserts that looks impressive, but is actually pretty easy to make. And by making it vegan, you guarantee a treat for everyone!
- 2 rounds store-bought soft vegan pie dough (or make your own)
- 4 medium baking apples, peeled, cored and sliced into ¼-inch pieces (I used a mix of Granny Smith and Gala, but there are many other great baking apples)
- Juice of ½ lemon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom or 4–5 cardamom pods, ground
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1½ teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp ground cloves
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- Optional: 1½–2½ tablespoons vegan butter (I love Miyoko’s), cut into pieces
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Stretch the dough into a rectangular shape, extending toward the sides and ends. Place in a bowl and squeeze lemon juice on them. Add all remaining ingredients except butter to the apples and toss gently. Depending on the size of your apples, you might have extra liquid; if so, leave it in the bowl and don’t pour it onto the apples to avoid soggy dough.
- Lay the slices slightly stacked against each other on the dough, leaving a ¼-inch border of dough. Roll dough border up to form a rim. If you’re using butter, scatter pieces on top of apples. Bake approximately 45 minutes until apples are lightly browned. Serve warm or room temperature with a dollop of vegan ice cream or yogurt.
