Smoked Gouda Pumpkin Galette

Yields1 Serving

pumpkin galette

 ¼ cup vegan sour cream
 1.50 tsp apple cider vinegar
 1 ¼ cups gluten-free all purpose flour (I like Bob's Red Mill)
  cup vegan butter (I like Earth Balance)
 1 lb peeled, cored pumpkin
 1 tbsp coconut oil
 4 oz soft tofu
 2 garlic cloves
 Juice of two lemons
 ¼ tsp nutmeg
 1 tbsp flour of choice
 Fresh thyme
 vegan Gouda or other cheese
 salt and pepper to taste
 4 tsp coconut oil
 1 large red onion sliced
 sea salt
 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
 2 tsp maple syrup

Mix flour and chilled butter (cut into pieces) in a mixer or with a fork- add sour cream and vinegar and combine well. Form into a ball of dough and refrigerate.


Cut the pumpkin into chunks and coat with oil, salt, and pepper. Roast on a baking tray in the oven for approximately 20 minutes at 375 degrees. Flip pieces once to twice during baking.


Combine tofu, garlic, lemon juice, pepper, nutmeg, and flour in a blender or food processor. Add one cup of cooked pumpkin and blend well.


Meanwhile, sauté the onion slices in oil over medium-low heat. When soft and starting to brown add in the vinegar and syrup and turn heat to until soft and sweet.


Roll dough out on a floured surface or a piece of parchment paper. Pour filling into the middle of the dough and place cubed pumpkin, chunks of vegan cheese, and thyme over the filling. Sprinkle with onions and top with salt and pepper.


Fold the sides of the dough up around the filling to form an open-faced ‘galette’.


Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until brown. You may brush the crust with soy or nut milk to ‘glaze’ it if you wish.


Enjoy with a side salad for a delicious meal, or serve as an appetizer or first course at your net holiday gathering.
