Beetroot & Feta Galette with Wholemeal Carrot Pastry

This galette is delicious and healthy and features caramelised onions teamed up with beetroot and feta in a delicious wholemeal, carrot pastry.

Galette is a term used in French cuisine to designate various types of flat round or free form crusty cake or pastry usually with a savoury filling. Making a galette style pie is actually the easiest type of pie to make, because the edges are free-formed and there’s no pastry wastage, because you simply roll all the pastry out, lay in it the pie dish, put in the filling and fold the extended pie edges back in towards the centre.

The pastry is light and almost crunchy when served straight from the oven, but remember if you re-heat it in the microwave the pastry will soften.
