six ideas for pastry

Start these delicious galettes and the quiche by making the basic pastry recipe and prepare the fillings while the dough rests in the fridge. Each recipe makes 2 galettes, except for the quiche, which makes 1.


WILD MUSHROOM GALETTES
Sauté 600 g (1 lb 5 oz) sliced mushrooms in olive oil until soft. Add 2 finely chopped garlic cloves and fry for 3 minutes. Add a splash of vegan white wine and stir. Add 3 tbsp chopped flat-leaf (Italian) parsley, a squeeze of lemon juice, a pinch of chilli flakes and season with salt and pepper. Roll the dough into 2 x 25 cm (10 inch) circles directly onto sheets of baking paper. Spoon the mushrooms on top, leaving a 3 cm (1¼ inch) border. Fold the border over, pleating and pressing to form a neat edge. Slide the galettes on their paper onto baking trays and bake for 25 minutes in a 180°C (350°F/Gas 4) oven. 


ZUCCHINI & HERB GALETTES
Peel 4 zucchini (courgettes) and make ribbons with a vegetable peeler. Fry 2 sliced onions in olive oil until soft. Add the zucchini and 1 squeeze lemon juice and fry until tender. Add the grated zest of ½ lemon and some salt and pepper. Roll the dough into 2 x 25 cm (10 inch) circles directly onto sheets of baking paper. Spoon the zucchini mixture on top, leaving a 3 cm (1¼ inch) border. Fold the border over, pleating and pressing to form a neat edge. Slide the galettes on their paper onto baking trays and bake for 25 minutes in a 180°C (350°F/Gas 4) oven. Serve scattered with chopped mint and basil and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.


ASPARAGUS & GARLIC GALETTES
Very gently simmer the peeled cloves of 4 garlic bulbs in olive oil for 40 minutes. Remove and mash to a paste. Roll the dough into 2 x 25 cm (10 inch) circles directly onto baking paper. Spread the garlic paste over the dough, leaving a 3 cm (1¼ inch) border. Top with 200 g (7 oz) fine asparagus spears (slice thicker spears lengthways) and scatter with grated non-dairy cheese. Fold the border over, pleating and pressing to form a neat edge. Drizzle with olive oil and slide the galettes on their paper onto baking trays. Bake for 25 minutes in a 180°C (350°F/Gas 4) oven. 


TOMATO & RICOTTA GALETTES
Make the ricotta recipe and mix in 1 tsp dried oregano. Roll the dough out into 2 x 25 cm (10 inch) circles directly onto baking paper. Spread the ricotta over the dough, leaving a 3 cm (1¼ inch) border. Put halved cherry tomatoes cut-side up, covering the ricotta completely. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Fold the border over, pleating and pressing to form a neat edge. Slide the galettes on their paper onto baking trays and bake for 25 minutes in a 180°C (350°F/Gas 4) oven. 


SPINACH & CAPSICUM QUICHE
Use half the pastry recipe to line a 20 cm (8 inch) tart (flan) tin. Prick with a fork, chill for 30 minutes and bake for 10 minutes in a 180°C (350°F/Gas 4) oven. Fry 1 sliced onion in olive oil for 5 minutes. Add 2 chopped garlic cloves, 1 chopped yellow capsicum (pepper) and 1 tsp dried oregano. Fry until tender. Add 100 g (3½ oz) baby English spinach and fry until wilted. Set aside. In a blender, blitz 600 g (1 lb 5 oz) firm tofu and 2 tbsp nutritional yeast. Mix together the tofu, vegetables and 1 tbsp each chopped chives and basil. Pour into the pastry case and bake for 30–40 minutes until golden. Leave in the tin for 5 minutes before serving.


BEETROOT GALETTES
Add 2 tsp toasted caraway seeds to the basic pastry recipe. Fry 2 sliced onions in olive oil until soft. Add 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar and a pinch of sugar and fry for 3 minutes. Roll the dough into 2 x 25 cm (10 inch) circles directly onto baking paper. Spread the onion over the pastry circles, leaving a 3 cm (1¼ inch) border. Slice 200 g (7 oz) cooked beetroot (beets) and arrange on top of the onion. Fold the border over, pleating and pressing to form a neat edge. Slide the galettes on their paper onto baking trays and bake for 25 minutes in a 180°C (350°F/Gas 4) oven.
