Whipped Feta & Heirloom Tomato Galette


I can't believe how fast this Summer went by! I felt like one minute we were embracing the cold Winter winds and the next minute, we are faced with the hot August humidity. But with all that said, don't let the Summer pass you by this year without trying our Whipped Feta & Heirloom Tomato Galette that is crispy, juicy, and oh. so. yummy!

How do you make Whipped Feta?

One simple step.... blend the feta!

Of course, I added a few additional ingredients to bring out the natural, delicious flavors of the feta cheese: Lemon, Fresh Dill, Garlic, and Olive Oil.

If you're anything like me, I often like to over think the simplest of things. I used to think galettes were these beautiful meals that were also known as "labor of love" dish. But that is SO untrue!

How do you make a Tomato Galette?

Step 1: Prepare and Bake the Puff Pastry.

Preheat oven to 425F.

Prepare the puff pastry by lightly rolling out any crimps on a floured surface, then you'll slice a 1" border that will end up super crispy and puffed up. And finally, you want to crimp the inside of the border with a fork A LOT to keep it from rising with the outside edges while baking.

BUT, if it does get tall and rise during baking, do not worry! It will naturally fall down :)

Step 2: Make the Whipped Feta.

Simply blend all ingredients (lemon, feta, fresh herbs, olive oil, garlic) listed below until creamy and smooth.

Step 3: Assemble the Galette.

Spread the whipped feta onto the galette. And do not feel like you have to use it all (I didn't lol)

Layer on your *thinly* sliced tomatoes. Remember... the thinner, the crisper, the better texture, the tastier.

Step 4: Bake.

Bake until the tomatoes are juicy and tender, and the pastry edges are deeply browned and crispy.

Season with salt and black pepper, a drizzle of olive oil, fresh herbs, and capers. Enjoy!

Now, it’s time to grab our aprons and begin baking deliciousness! ’till next time! xxL

Whipped Feta & Heirloom Tomato Galette



  • 1 sheet of Puff Pastry (thawed)
  • 2-3 Heirloom Tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 7 oz. Feta Cheese
  • 3 sprigs of Fresh Dill, or 1/4 cup Basil Leaves
  • 2-3 Garlic Cloves, trimmed and peeled
  • 1 Lemon, juice & zest
  • 1 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1 Egg, for an egg wash (or substitute with olive oil)
  • Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
  • Capers, rinsed and patted dry (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. Lightly roll out the puff pastry (just enough to even out the crimps), then trim the edges to create a rectangular-shape.
  3. Using a sharp knife, slice a 1" inch border, then press throughout the center of the border with a fork (refer to video for visual instructions).
  4. Brush with an egg wash (or olive oil) and bake for 15 minutes. Once golden brown, take out but keep oven heated.
  5. In the meantime, add the feta cheese, garlic cloves, dill, lemon juice, lemon zest, and olive oil to a food processor. Blend until creamy and smooth.
  6. Gently press down the center of the puff pastry (within the borders) with the back of a spoon.
  7. Spread the whipped feta evenly onto the center of the puff pastry.
  8. Layer on the thinly sliced tomatoes (the thinner they are sliced, they more crispy the puff pastry will be).
  9. Bake for 15-20 more minutes, or until tomatoes are tender and juicy.
  10. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Add the capers, fresh dill, and an additional drizzle of olive oil, then enjoy!
