Rhubarb strawberry and apple crumble

Much like last week’s orange sweet potatoes, rhubarbs are not a vegetable (yes it’s a vegetable) you often find. They’re one of the only vegetables that are used in sweet foods without so much as a second thought and add a really nice tang to desserts. You can eat them raw (except for the leaves which are poisonous) but they’re better cooked.

In deciding whether to turn a fresh bunch into a crisp, muffin, ice cream or sauce, the crumble won (because I also had on hand strawberries and apples that needed to be used… and it involved ice cream – ice cream ftw!). Crumbles are also one of the easiest desserts you can make. This Rhubarb, Strawberry and Apple crumble is tart, slightly sweet with a nice combination of chewy bits (soft caramelised dates) and crisp. I used half rice flakes and half oat flakes but you can stick to regular oats. I personally loved the rice flakes as they have a much crispier feel than the oats. Alone it does taste like a “healthy” dessert – so if you have a sweet tooth, a scoop of ice cream is a must.
