Roasted Eggplant Galette

Roasted Eggplant Galette is a great Summer entertaining dish packed with roasted eggplant, tomato sauce, and basil. It is a vegetarian dish but can be adapted to meet vegan lifestyle! 

I made Roasted Eggplant Galette a while back as a light Summery lunch. It is one of those recipes that is very therapeutic to make; it involves making a dough from scratch, roasting vegetables, and casually folding ingredients into a galette (free form tart) without much fuss. I used Summer vegetables like eggplants, basil, tomato sauce, and cheese to create almost a pizza like galette but if you are inspired by Fall, perhaps use butternut squash, arugula, shallots, and goat cheese for a Fall-ish galette.

If you are nervous about making a dough from scratch, just trust me that galette dough I am sharing is very very forgiving. I have made samosa galette using the same dough and here is a short time lapse video that shows the whole process:

Whatever filling you decide to go with, I really hope you will make a savory galette for entertaining or as a light lunch!

I am going through this weird phase : writers block + feeling uninspired + overwhelmed so instead of words, I will leave you with some pictures of Roasted Eggplant Galette.
