Rhubarb Crisp


I'm not sure if you've picked up on this yet, but summer always makes me extremely nostalgic. It's probably something about coming home after being away for a whole school year and having almost everything feel the same as it did when I was younger.


In my opinion, nothing tastes as deliciously nostalgic as my favorite summer dessert: my mom's homemade rhubarb crisp. She used to make it every June or early July from the fresh rhubarb we grew in our garden. This year I volunteered to veganize the recipe and make it slightly healthier, while still maintaining that perfect balance of bitter and sweet. The result? Heavenly.

To get this recipe, you can head on over to my post on One Green Planet, where I am so excited to be debuting as a regular columnist!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous--pretty enough to make me a believer! (I'm not a huge rhubarb fan...but that really does look delish!)

    1. Thanks, Jes! Rhubarb can be pretty bitter sometimes, but this recipe hides that well, I think. Let me know if you try it and convert to us rhubarb-lovers :)

    Made this recipe substituting apple sauce for the margarine. Having never had rhubarb before, I ended up serving it with a sprinkle of sugar to combat the tartness. Wow. It's a nice recipe. Thank you.
