Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp {SF, GF, V}

Tempeh Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Sammies (2)

There’s nothing I enjoy more than summer fruit…

Seriously just wait until watermelon is officially back in season (I’m already partaking…but you know when it’s at it’s best, it’s well…it’s best. DUH).

Right now I’m enjoying the short strawberry season here in NYC. And once you try a fresh seasonal local strawberry, there ain’t nothing else like it. It is THAT good.


And if you know anything about fresh strawberries, they do not last very long (besides the instant snacking), they are super delicate. So I when I brought home two pints of these sexy thangs and had a few stalks of rhubarb, I thought why the heck not.

Though I did think a pie would suffice, I opted for something lighter and a little less labor intensive. I mean, who wants to spend the summer using the oven?! NOT ME!

This crisp is:

  • tangy
  • crunchy
  • flakey
  • sweet without added sugar or sweeteners
  • just a few ingredients with little to no effort

Now that is amazeballs!
