For the shortcrust pastry with olive oil

  • 250 g of flour
  • 1 egg
  • 80 ml olive oil
  • 40 ml of water
  • 1 tablespoon of herbes de Provence
  • 5 g of salt

For the filling

  • 1 kg of multicoloured tomatoes
  • 75 g crème fraîche
  • 2 tablespoons of wholegrain mustard
  • 1 drizzle of olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  • Start by preparing the olive oil shortcrust pastry by mixing the flour, egg, olive oil, water and salt. Form a ball and cover it with cling film. Let it rest while you prepare the next step.
  • Wash the tomatoes and cut them into thin strips. Then place them on paper towels to remove excess water.
  • Mix the crème fraîche and the wholegrain mustard. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Roll out the shortcrust pastry with a rolling pin and form a circle. Your circle should be large enough to have enough dough to cover the tomatoes.
  • Then spread the crème fraîche and mustard in the centre of the pastry. Place the tomatoes on top. Add a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of herbes de Provence. Then fold the edges of the dough inwards, covering some of the tomatoes.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes at 180 °C (conventional heat).
  • Serve with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.


For an extra treat, you can add feta cheese or slices of mozzarella to this French Galette with Tomatoes before baking.
