Broccoli and vegan cheese galette

Written by Veronica Lavenia

Broccoli and vegan cheese galette is a perfect idea to use leftovers or, more simply, for a savoury snack with seasonal vegetables.

In this case, the recipe is even more special because it is made with broccoli from my garden.

Broccoli from my garden are grown without the use of pesticides, perhaps for this reason, when cooked, they maintain a bright color. Once steamed for a few minutes, dip the broccoli in cold water. In this way, the green will keep completely (or almost) even once cooked in the oven.

The vegan puff pastry is always very useful for quick recipes but it can also contain unhealthy vegetable fats. I do not use it often but when it happens I choose a palm oil-free organic product, preferably made with high oleic sunflower oil.
