This is an easy galette with figs, goat cheese and red onion. It only requires a few ingredients, and is so easy to make. It is gluten free and lower in fat since I replaced some of the butter with greek yogurt instead. This galette is perfect to serve as an appetizer or starter during fall.
I am a big fan of galettes! I’ve made several sweet ones with fruits, and just loved ever single one of them. But this was my first time making a savory one. It sure didn’t disappoint me! I used goat cheese at the bottom to get a nice and melted layer, then topped it with sliced figs and red onion. The combination of these ingredients is amazing. I’ve always liked the combination of goat cheese and figs. It makes the perfect match with the tangy and creamy goat cheese and the fresh, juicy and sweet figs. But then to top it off with some sliced red onion that gets a bit caramelized in the oven is amazing. I drizzled a little bit of honey on top to make it even a little bit sweeter.
The crust is made with less butter which I replaced with Greek yogurt instead. The crust is still crispy, but less heavy than a regular crust when only butter is used. I really prefer this crust, since I don’t want the galette to be too heavy. It makes a very balanced and fresh appetizer or starter, without getting too heavy.

Fig & Goat Cheese Galette Topped with Red Onion (Gluten Free & Less Fat)
For the crust
- 2 1/2 dl Gluten free all purpose flour
- 25 g Butter
- 3/4-1 dl Thick greek yogurt
- A pinch of Salt
- 1 Egg whisked
For the filling
- 2 Figs sliced
- 50-75 g Goat cheese crumbled
- 1/2 small Onion cut into thin wedges
- Honey (optional)
- Start by adding flour, butter, yogurt (start with 3/4 dl) and salt together. Kneed until you have a firm dough. This will take a while (4-5 min). If it really doesnt stick together add a little more yogurt and kneed again.
- Wrap in cling film or put in a plastic bag and let it rest in the fridge for 20-30 minutes. (This step can be skipped).
- When the dough is ready preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
- Roll the dough either in to one big think circle, or two smaller ones (if making two galettes, I prefer making small ones).
- Crumble the goat chees over the galette and then slice the figs and put on top. Add the thinly sliced red onion wedges on top. Leave about 1/2-1 cm around the edges. Fold the dough edges in over the figs and goat cheese.
- Brush with egg wash and bake in the oven for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Serve with honey (optional).
