Tips for Making the Best Gluten-Free Vegan Galettes
- For gluten-free vegan mini galettes pictured here, use my Gluten-Free Vegan Sorghum Flour Pie Crust Dough Recipe. Or purchase pie crust dough of choice!
- I think fresh blackberries provide the best flavor alongside fresh kiwi, but in a pinch frozen berries will work!
- Maple syrup can be replaced with coconut sugar, raw honey or a sugar-free sweetener such as Lakanto.
- The ground ginger really complements and enhances the kiwi, but it can be omitted or replace with ground cinnamon if need be.
- These galettes taste best straight out of the oven but will keep lightly covered at room temperature for up to 36 hours or in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
- To re-heat, simply place in a 350 F/180 C oven until warmed throughout.

- 1 kiwi peeled & chopped (+ 1 more for optional garnishing)
- 5 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- Combine berries, kiwi, maple syrup in ginger in a large bowl. Mix and mash a little, set aside.
- Divide pie crust dough into four equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball.
- Preheat oven to 400 F/ 205 C.
- On a parchment lined cutting board or counter, take one dough ball at a time and roll out into a small circle (see images above in post), about 1/4 inch thick or alternatively, use your fingers to press the dough out into circles. Repeat with remaining dough on same sheet of parchment.
- Transfer parchment paper (dough circles and all) to a cookie sheet.
- Spoon 1/4 of your prepared berry filling into the center of each dough round.
- Working quickly, fold the sides of each dough circle toward the center of each galette. This is not supposed to be very neat, this is a rustic pie - so do not fret if it gets messy. Just try your best to fold the edges up, and use the warmth of your hands to press and patch any holes.
- Place your prepared galettes into your preheated oven.
