Ingredients:

For the crust:

1 cup (140g) cassava flour

1 cup (80g) super-fine almond flour

½ cup (60g) tapioca starch/flour

1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise and scraped for seeds (reserve pod for another use)

Pink Himalayan salt

80g almond paste (marzipan), chilled

100g vanilla bean ghee, chilled

1 large egg

1 tsp. Almond extract

2 tbsp. vodka, iced 

2-3 tbsp. water, iced 

 

For the filling:

2.5lb / 1 kg 100 g ripe strawberries, divided

5-6 tbsp. grade A maple syrup, divided 

1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise and scraped for seeds (reserve pod for another use)

4 tbsp. super-fine almond flour

2 tbsp. tapioca starch/flour

1 tbsp. vanilla bean ghee, melted

1 large egg yolk

1 tbsp. full-fat coconut milk

2-3 tbsp. coconut sugar, optional 

 

How-to:

 

  1. To make the filling: Preheat oven to 250° F / 120 C. Rinse and hull 1.5 pounds strawberries. Leave any tiny ones whole and half or quarter the rest, so they all look uniform in size. In a shallow baking pan, gently toss strawberries with 4 tablespoons maple syrup, vanilla bean seeds and salt; spread in a single layer. Roast slowly, uncovered, for 2 to 2.5 hours until berries look jammy, and their juices have reduced to syrup. Mash coarsely and let cool completely.
  2.  To make the crust: Place flours, vanilla bean seeds and salt in a food processor and pulse to combine. Add almond paste and vanilla bean ghee and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. In a small bowl, whisk together egg, almond extract, vodka and 1 tablespoon water; drizzle over flour mixture. Pulse until mixture just begins to hold together. If dough is too dry, add 2 tablespoons more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and pulse. Gather dough into a ball. On a piece of parchment paper lightly floured with tapioca starch, roll out dough to a 13″ by 16″ oval, 1/4 inch thick. Do not worry if dough tears. Just patch it up and carry on. Transfer dough and parchment to a rimmed baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or as long as overnight.
  3. To assemble the galette: Preheat oven to 375° F / 190 C. In a small bowl, combine almond flour and tapioca starch; sprinkle over dough, leaving a 2-inch border. Spoon roasted strawberry mixture over it. Thinly slice 1 pound of strawberries, reserving end pieces for another use. Arrange decoratively on top of roasted strawberry mixture. Fold in edges, patching up any tears. Brush berries with 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup (depending on the sweetness of your strawberries) mixed in with melted vanilla bean ghee. Whisk egg yolk with coconut milk; brush over edges of galette. Sprinkle entire surface of galette with 2-3 tablespoons coconut sugar. Bake until golden, about 40-45 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool completely.
