Tomato and Chard Pesto Galette [Vegan]



Chard Pesto:
  • 4 large (or 6 small) leaves of chard
  • 3/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup roasted walnut or pine nuts
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • Salt, as needed
Galette Dough:
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup ice cold water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes


To Make the Pesto:
  1. Grind the cashews in a food processor a little, leaving them still chunky.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients, except the olive oil, into the food processor and grind until you get a coarsely textured paste (You can adjust texture to your taste).
  3. Add the olive oil, pulse the food processor a few times to mix.
To Make the Dough:
  1. Freeze the olive oil, putting half and half in two separate small containers.
  2. Place the flour and salt in a food possessor, pulse a few times to combine.
  3. Add the solid olive oil, pulse to break it apart into tiny pieces.
  4. Add the ice cold water, pulse until the mixture is crumbly. It will have a consistency to stick and hold together when squeezed.
  5. Transfer the dough on a dry surface. Give it a fat disk shape, wrap it in plastic wrap and put it in the fridge to chill for at least one hour, or for up to two days.
To Make the Galette:
  1. Heat the oven to 400°F.
