Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp #festfoods So, it’s rhubarb season, which is like, one of the coolest seasons of all.  It means that we can bake up our favorite desserts: pie, crumble, bars and CRISP.  All with rhubarb.  And because strawberries go so perfectly with it, I had to toss them into the mix {if I didn’t, it’d be like having peanut butter without jelly}.  Let’s do this thing! Watch two of our registered dietitians, Brittany and Lauren, walk you through this super simple recipe.

But first, take a quick peek at the rhubarb.  Isn’t it beautiful?!  Yes, produce can be beautiful. Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp Okay, enough gawking, it’s time to cook!  There are many different ways to prepare Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp, and this is one of my favorite ways {because it’s so easy!}. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Place the oats, butter and brown sugar in a food processor and give it a few pulses until the ingredients are combined {or you can just mix it together in a bowl}.  Spread the mixture on a baking sheet and bake until crispy, about 8-10 minutes. Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp In the meantime, prepare the filling.  Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat.  Add the rhubarb and lemon juice, then whisk in the sugar and cornstarch.  Cook for 1-2 minutes, just until the mixture starts to thicken. Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp Add the strawberries and cook an additional minute or two, until the rhubarb is a little soft and the filling is thick. Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp Spoon the strawberry rhubarb filling into bowls.  Top with crispy oat topping.  Serve as is, or with vanilla frozen yogurt or ice cream.  Yum!
