Recipe: Vegan Rhubarb Crisp


Hello everyone,

I hope you’re all enjoying the weather, getting together with friends, and eating yummy food! In preparation for several holiday get togethers this weekend, I went to the West Side Market to pick up some fresh produce. I was so please to find one of my favorite summer vegetable/fruits – rhubarb!

rhu·barb (noun)           

1 . the thick leaf stalks of a cultivated plant of the dock family, which are reddish or green and eaten as a fruit after cooking.

2. the large-leaved Eurasian plant that produces rhubarb.

Rhubarb is technically a vegetable, but legally a fruit. It’s generally thought of as the “pie plant” since the stalk is used in many summer pie fillings. Strawberry-rhubarb pie anyone? Sure, it’s tasty, but pie is overdone, and who wants to roll a pie crust in 85 degree weather? Not me!

Today I decided to make a sweet, rhubarb crisp. There are only seven ingredients, and this recipe is so easy to make! Head out to your local farmer’s market and pick up some beautiful greenish red rhubarb stalks to make this dessert today!
