Fig, Caramelised Onion & Lamb Galette

A galette is a free form pie or tart. This rustic lamb galette is the perfect meal to serve guests. We love the sweet figs and caramelised onions combo paired with juicy lamb and fresh mint. Yum!

Prep time: 15 mins Cook time: 55 mins Serves: 5


For the lamb
  • 450g Pure South Lamb Boneless Loin, finely diced
  • 2 tsp Olivado Avocado Cooking Oil
  • 1/3 cup FreshLife Pine Nuts
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Ground Coriander
  • ¼ tsp Cinnamon
  • Salt & pepper


  • 1 sheet of shortcrust pastry, thawed
  • ½ cup F. Whitlock & Sons caramelised onion relish
  • 6 FreshLife Silver Platter Figs, halved, width-wise
  • 1 Egg, whisked


  1. For the lamb: Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add lamb, cumin, coriander and cinnamon, and fry for 5-10 minutes until browned. Season with salt and pepper, stir through pine nuts and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a flat baking tray with baking paper. Lay the pastry on top, then using a sharp knife, trim the edges of the pastry to form a large circle.
  3. Spread the caramelised onions in the centre of the pastry, leaving 5cm of crust around the edges. Lay the fried lamb on top, then top with quartered figs.
  4. Lift the edge of the dough and place it inwards, covering some of the filling. Repeat with remaining edges until you have a circular galette with some exposed filling. Brush pastry edges with egg.
  5. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until golden and cooked through. Garnish with mint leaves and enjoy.
