Galettes are a rustic pie/ tart (pastry dough wrapped over a filling), that can be made sweet or savoury. They're a crowd pleaser for sure, and can be served as a meal, snack or tea- time hors d'oeuvres.
Here I've made a beautiful, rustic, banana and blueberry galette for a sweet treat. If you're looking for a quick dessert, this galette is perfect for you. It's super comforting, delicious and easy-to-make.
The golden brown crust has the perfect crunch, and pairs deliciously with the gooey, sweet berry filling. Serve this galette with a scoop of vegan ice cream and you've got a winning dessert. You can also customize this recipe with using your favourite berries or fruits.

Lightly oil a cast iron pan or baking dish and sprinkle with flour. Then flour your hands to hold the dough and place on the pan, pressing to flatten the dough and spread to the corners. Top with the filling, spread then, fold the corners of dough over the filling. Lightly brush the crust with non dairy milk and sprinkle with sugar (optional).
