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!
