Recipe Sunday – Pear Galette with a Rooibos Glaze

My kittens, are you enjoying a nice Sunday? Yesterday, I came to the realisation that next week we’ll get into December! Goodness gracious! Another year is ending and I hope that you have managed to do many of the things you put your head to. And even if not, you have tried and life is not easy and it doesn’t come with instructions so kudos to you for being a human being. Whatever you are feeling at the moment, I also hope that the recipe I am sharing with you today will lift your spirits. It certainly did so when I made it on Wednesday and it is now one of my favourite recipes!

Obviously, as you know, I LOVE easy and quick recipes returning a delicious result, and this recipe doesn’t disappoint! So, without further ado the Pear Galette with a Rooibos Glaze by Anett Velsberg (on Best of Vegan).

Pear Galette with a Rooibos Glaze by Anett Velsberg (on Best of Vegan)


  • 150g unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 25g whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp vegan sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 115 ml coconut oil, cold
  • approximately 30 ml water
  • 150 ml rooibos tea
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla seeds
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup, for brushing
  • 2 pears, cut in half length-wise, seeds removed and thinly sliced
  • Icing sugar, for dusting
  • Coconut whipped cream, to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F.
  2. Place the flours, sugar and salt in a food processor and pulse to combine. Add the coconut oil and pulse until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Start dripping in cold water while the machine is running until the dough comes together. Take it out, form a ball, flatten it into a disc, wrap in cling wrap and place in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  3. Now make the rooibos glaze by bringing the tea, sugar and vanilla to a boil and reducing it until the consistency of syrup.
  4. Roll out the dough between two sheets of baking paper. Arrange the pears on top, fanning them out and leaving a bit of room from the sides. Bring the sides of the dough over the pears, smudging together any bits that tear. Brush the pears with the rooibos glaze and the dough with the maple syrup. Place in the oven at 200°C for 15-20 minutes until slightly golden. Serve warm with coconut whipped cream. Enjoy!

This is my first time making a galette from scratch and it was so easy! Try it and thank me later.
