rhubarb crisp

Rhubarb CrispThat’s right, my sweet Granny brought me more rhubarb…and this time it was so much that you are going to see not one but TWO recipes flaunting this perfectly tart ingredient.

First up is an easy easy peasy rhubarb crisp. It’s a little sweet and a lot tart with a crunchy exterior. Maybe this is my self portrait in food form. Nonetheless, this crisp is good and will make your belly happy.

Rhubarb CrispI am not sure what I love about this dish more, the rhubarb or the nutty topping. The rhubarb is bright and fresh with that POW flavor while the oatmeal topping is sweet and nutty and provides the perfect crunchiness. On their own they are good, but together they are summer bliss.
