I recently made this savoury galette for a friend visiting for lunch and she had no idea that it was keto.

In fact, she laughed and asked what had happened to my keto lifestyle. Imagine the look on her face when I told her that this galette is fully keto. That’ll teach her, lol.

This is perfect for a fancy low-carb lunch or a light dinner, it would probably work as a pot luck contribution too.

The creamy lush filling is gently flavoured with the thyme, while the buttery mushrooms add a delicious depth to this healthy low-carb dish. It's actually quite similar to keto pizza! If you prefer sweet, try this Keto Summer Berry Galette. Enjoy!

  1. Mince the onion and garlic, and slice the mushrooms. Mushroom & Ricotta Keto Galette
  2. In a frying pan, add half of the butter and the sliced mushrooms and cook until browned and crisped. (Mushrooms contain about 30% water, so putting them on the tart raw and then baking will result in a runny and not as tasty result.)

  3. While the mushrooms are cooking, melt the rest of the butter in a small saucepan and then finely chop the onion and the garlic, adding to the butter and sautéing until soft.
  4. In a bowl, place the ricotta, gouda, thyme leaves, eggs and butter mixture from the saucepan and stir briskly until creamy and combined. Set aside. Mushroom & Ricotta Keto Galette
  5. Preheat oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F (fan assisted). To make the dough, melt mozzarella and cream cheese in a microwave safe bowl on high for 1 minute. Remove and stir, then microwave for a further 30 seconds.
  6. Stir and then add almond flour, seasonings and egg and mix well until a soft dough forms.
