Galette is a French word for a crusty cake (sometimes it’s also called ‘Galette des Rois’ which translates as ‘King Cake’, eaten on the day of Epiphany). In Quebec (the French-speaking area of Canada that includes the city of Montreal), the term is also used to describe pastries and cookies. Vegan Zucchini (Courgette) Galette (Lazy Cat Kitchen) is made with soaked cashews to make the creamy filling, flavoured with miso and mint.
