Ruby Red Rhubarb

We love this sweet and tart treat all year round, but especially when the weather is warm.

Rhubarb is a unique vegetable that is often found in sweet dishes, such as tarts, pies, and crumbles. This is due to to it’s tart flavoring, which perfectly balances out overly sweet flavors.

Bake this delicious strawberry and orange rhubarb crumble to impress you guests! Start by getting your oven hot and ready at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Meanwhile, combine the strawberries and rhubarb in a 9×13 baking dish. Top them with your brown sugar, orange juice, vanilla, and cornstarch. Mix these ingredients well and then flatten out the mixture into an even layer. Cook the crumble for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the fruit has softened (but isn’t mushy).

While the fruit mixture is cooking, make the topping by adding the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Mix these ingredients together until they are well combined, and then add the melted coconut oil and toss the topping mixture until clumps form.

Once the fruit mixture is done baking, top it with an even layer of the topping. Then, bake for another 20 minutes or until the fruit mixture is bubbling and the topping is golden. Let it cool and set for about 10 minutes before serving, then enjoy!
