British Pie Week 2018! Vegan Apple & Cinnamon Galette

British Pie Week 2018! Vegan Apple & Cinnamon Galette Posted on 11/03/20185 Comments
Ahoy, hello! My name is Jenny. I am a thirty-something human female from Manchester in the north of England. I enjoy rainy days and sad songs, custard donuts and salt & pepper chips and beer, lentil dhal and fried okra, X-Files and Twin Peaks, fierce fat heroines and mental health advocates, dogs and cats and otters and a very special beirdo. To paraphrase Sylvia Plath: "I blog because there is a voice within me that insists on writing lots of ridiculous chuff".

Galettes are one of my absolute lazy faves these days. I absolutely condone making one’s own pastry (I think it’s worth the effort if you can be bothered and have a recipe here) but Jus-Rol will do just as well in a pinch and makes the fruit the only laborious part of this recipe.

But still, I keep it simple. I used up a collection of older green apples that neither N nor I fancied eating on their own. I cored and chopped (skins on) and stewed in water with a little lemon juice (to prevent browning) for around 10 minutes.

I drained the apple, then melted a dollop of vegan butter (I used Vitalite) in a pan along with a generous tablespoon of brown sugar, and a couple of teaspoons of cinnamon. Once melted, I mixed in the apple, and then deposited the whole lovely lot onto a large square of shortcrust pastry.

You then simply fold the edges over, and bake until browned. Voila!

We had ours with Alpro custard and congratulated ourselves on a British Pie Week well celebrated. Hurrah!

How about you, friends? Have you celebrated with a pie this week?

  1. I envy you brits and your jus-au-rolls (or whatever they are called) We don’t have anything like them in the states. Sure we have crescent rolls (not croissants) and ready made pie crusts, but I’ve never had a ready made pie crust that I thought was good enough.

  2. Every week is pie week in my house! Normally savoury pies though – not sure why I’m a bit sweet pie averse, given I’m extremely partial to all things sweet. I love that Jus Rol exists. It’s figured in my dinner more than I care to think about. I love the look of your galette, and apple and cinnamon are one of those combos that are just meant to be together.

  3. How lovely that you have a pie week! I know that pie day is tomorrow in the US because they right their dates funny, but not really here. I have been thinking about making a pie anyway, but won’t have time. So I will be heating up a frozen savoury pie for lunch.

  4. That looks so good. No pies here but I’m also jealous of your Alpro. The US hasn’t gotten its vegan yogurt/custard game together yet.
