Typically I don’t feature desserts on Monday, but if there is any time of the week that I have fruit going bad, it’s early in the week. I order groceries either Sunday or Monday and there always happens to be fruit lingering behind that’s on it’s way out. No matter what I do, there is always something on the verge of being tosses so if there is every fresh fruit, it’s going into a homemade granola, crisp, cobbler, or galette!!
If you’re not familiar with a galette, simply put, it’s like a rustic pie or tart with half the work. When I tell you this concept is easy, trust me, you’ll be craving a galette every day of the week and questioning why you ever suffered through making a fancy pie lol.
While I love a good pie, there is something about a galette that I’m just captivated by. I love the effortlessness, that you can see all the fruit, that it’s a no frills concept and the list goes on.
What’s great about this particular galette is that it takes that same easy approach, features no dairy or eggs, simply 2 cups of fruit, has minimal added sugar, you can reduce the added sugar if desired or throw in maple syrup instead, you can use frozen berries, the lemon pairs perfectly with blueberries and is ideal for spring weather, the crust holds up, you can easily make the crusts and freeze for later use, you can mix up the fruit and even use canned fruit, it has aesthetic appeal, and is my new obsession!
If you love all things lemon or effortless vegan concepts, you have to try this new vegan Lemon Blueberry Galette!!
