Dessert: Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Ingredients

Red fruit bubbling away under a crunchy oat topping — this dessert tastes like summer

Filling

  • 4 cups chopped rhubarb
  • 4 cups frozen strawberries, thawed or chopped fresh strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt

Topping

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup oats
  • ½ cup sugar, preferably brown
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup butter or non-hydrogenated margarine, melted

Directions for Preparation

Filling

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a deep baking dish that is about 11 inches by 7 inches.
  2. Add the red fruit to the dish and sprinkle with the sugar, cinnamon, and salt.

Topping

  1. In a medium bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Pour in the melted butter/margarine and stir until mixture looks like peas. 
  2. Sprinkle crumb topping evenly over the fruit. 
  3. Bake until the topping is golden brown, and the fruit is bubbling, about 35-45 minutes.

For an added nutrition boost, add a tablespoon of hemp hearts or chia seeds to the fruit filling.
