Dans le vaste monde des galettes – Galettes de chou fleur et courgettes, sur lit de carottes rapées et sauce yaourt


I am so happy about the time change, days seems longer, they are definitely brighter. I am very ready for spring and everything it brings us.

This recipe features one more addition to the vegetable galettes chapter, I love those ones, well you need to first like cauliflower to appreciate those galettes…actually, no you don’t need to like cauliflower to appreciate these, you just need to try them.

I used the orange cauliflower kind but of course any cauliflower would work. I just like colorful dishes. It’s a quick dish to prepare and you can use those galettes as a side dish to chicken or any other meat, and for a vegetarian option, they are perfect as is with a green salad. These are a great way to make kids eat their vegetables, they’re fun and don’t look like one.

Ingredients for about 10 galettes

For the galettes

  • 1 head orange cauliflower, cut in florets
  • 1 zucchini
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 5 tbs parmesan
  • 2 tbs chives
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil

For the carrots

  • 4 large carrots, peeled and shredded
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1.5 tsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper

For the yogurt sauce

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed


Blanch cauliflower in boiling water for about 3 minutes. Drain and set aside. Using a mandoline slice zucchini finely, place in a drainer and add 1 tsp coarse salt and let it drain for about 15 min. Rinse under water and squeeze excess water.

Chop roughly cauliflower and place in a mixing bowl. Add zucchini. Add parmesan, chives, flour, baking power, salt and pepper.

In another mixing bowl, beat the eggs and add to the mixture. Mix well, the mixture should not be too liquid, if too liquid, add flour.

Heat olive oil in a pan, using your hand, form galettes (2 inches diameter) and place in pan. Cook until both sides are golden brown.

For the carrots and yogurt sauce, mix each respective ingredients together.

Serve galettes on a bed of carrots with yogurt sauce on top.
