Strawberry Galette with Vegan Vanilla Cream
- For the Galette
- 150g buckwheat flour
- 2 tbsp flaxseed mixed with 4 tbsp water
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 5 tbsp water
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp strawberry jam
- 200g strawberries
- For the Vanilla Cream
- 3 tbsp coconut cream (kept in the fridge overnight)
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
Pre-heat the oven to 150 degrees celsius. Mix the flaxseed with the water and leave to thicken up for a few minutes.
Add the buckwheat flour to your processing bowl with the thickened flaxseed mixture, maple syrup, coconut oil, water and vanilla extract. Mix well until a dough forms.
Sprinkle a little extra flour on a work surface then roll out the dough to around a few millimetres thickness.
Line a baking tray with baking paper and carefully transform the dough onto it.
Spread the jam around the centre of the dough, leaving a couple of centimetres around the edge. Cut the strawberries into slices then layer on top of the jam.
Fold the edge of the pastry in to create the crust. Place in the oven to bake for 20-25 minutes or until the pastry has turned golden brown.
Whilst the galette is baking it’s time to make the vanilla cream! Combine the coconut cream, maple syrup and vanilla extract in your Ninja and blend together.
Serve the galette slices with a drizzle of the sweet vanilla cream and enjoy!
