healthy homemade vegetable galette with tomatoes, zucchini and cheese

Baking isn’t reserved for just the fall and winter! With summer farmers markets being filled with so many delicious fruits and vegetables, it’s the perfect opportunity to whip up some delicious baked goods. Instead of making the same old basic fruit pie, try something new with this savory galette recipe that’s chockfull of seasonal veggies!

Never heard of a galette? It’s essentially a rustic, freeform tart or pie that’s a little rough around the edges … literally! It can be sweet or savory and tends to feature delicious and nutritious produce like fresh fruits and veggies. We created a healthy and savory galette recipe that’s filled with summer vegetables, including tomatoes, zucchini and yellow squash.

Our healthy galette crust features a combination of whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, cornmeal, cold light butter and ice cold water. A mixture of creamy ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese and black pepper is spread onto the crust and topped with tomato slices, halved cherry tomatoes, sliced zucchini and sliced yellow squash. A drizzle of olive oil and a medley of fresh herbs and spices completes this hearty, summer-inspired treat.
