This has got to be one of my absolute FAVOURITE recipes. If you are looking for an easy dessert recipe filled with seasonal ingredients, then you’ve come to the right place! This Peach Galette with Lavender and Basil is absolutely delicious! The lavender and the basil, combined with the peaches, give this galette such a unique flavour that is hard to resist!
I have truly been loving using seasonal fruits in my meals these days. I’ve been going a little crazy over the peaches this year because they are just so darn GOOD! In my opinion, the taste of ripened, juicy, fuzzy peaches is truly one of the best flavours out there. I’ve been brainstorming recipe ideas that involve peaches, and this one immediately came to mind because of how much I love galettes. A galette for every season, I say!
PEACH GALETTE INGREDIENTS
The ingredients for this peach galette recipe are rather simple. You guessed it: PEACHES! Peaches are the main star of the show, along with ground lavender and fresh basil leaves. Additionally, there is some monk fruit in the peach mixture to add a little natural sweetness.
As I said earlier, the lavender and basil really give this peach galette recipe an interesting flavour. It is almost a little more herbal, floral tasting and savoury. I am such a huge fan of the savoury and sweet combination.
For the dough, it is simply a combination of flour, butter, salt and water. I highly suggest making the dough the next before, which is what I did. This makes the preparation of the galette that much easier. In fact, I actually made two batches of galette dough, one to make this galette and another to save for later. Why not? It’s always nice to have dough on hand and ready to go whenever you might need it!
This dough recipe will yield a medium sized galette. However, if you wanted to make a larger galette, I would recommend doubling the dough recipe. The standard recipe will make about 4 medium servings, or 6 if you cut smaller slices.
I honestly feel like I don’t see enough peach dessert recipes out there. Peaches seem like a really underrated fruit if ya ask me! There are so many wonderful things you can make with peaches. Maybe I will have to do some experimenting and see what other desserts with peaches that I can come up with!
I absolutely love how well peaches go in savoury dishes as well. I recently made this Peach, Pesto Prosciutto Pizza with Arugula & Pistachios and it was definitely a keeper!

Peach Galette with Lavender & Basil
- 1 cup organic all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 stick unsalted, organic butter, cubed
- 3-4 tbsp ice water
Peach Lavender Basil Filling
- 4-5 fuzzy peaches, sliced thinly
- 1 tbsp ground lavender
- 1 tbsp arrowroot powder
- 1/3 cup monk fruit sweetener
- 1-2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
- 1 tbsp melted butter, for brushing
- extra monk fruit, for brushing
- extra fresh basil, for topping
- Prepare the dough by placing the flour & salt in a large mixing bowl. Combine. Add the unsalted butter. Work the butter into the flour using your hands until the it starts to resemble crumbly pea size pieces.
- Add the ice water and stir until a ball of dough forms. You can use your hands or a wooden spoon for this. Add extra water if necessary.
- Once you have your dough ball, gently flatten it and place it on some plastic wrap. Wrap the dough in the plastic wrap tightly and form a little disk. Place in fridge for at least 2 hours to chill.
- While the dough is chilling in the fridge, make the galette filling. In a medium mixing bowl, add sliced peaches, monk fruit, ground lavender and arrowroot powder. Gently toss together using your hands. Be careful not to squish the peaches if your peaches are extra ripe! Let the peaches sit in the mixture for about 10 minutes.
- When the dough is done chilling, flour a non-stick surface and roll out the dough to form a circle. Add flour as you go along. Once you have your circle, wrap the dough around your rolling pin by starting at the top of the circle and gently moving it towards you, picking up dough as you go along. Transfer the dough onto a floured baking sheet.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Start adding your peach mixture to the middle of the dough. Feel free to arrange your peaches any way you'd like. Add the basil to the peach mixture.
- Once all the peaches have been added to the dough, start gently folding the sides of the dough inwards. Add melted butter to the sides and the monk fruit sweetener. Place in oven and bake for 30-40 minutes.
- When done, let stand for 5 minutes. Serve with extra basil on top and a dollop of vanilla ice cream!
