Rhubarb Strawberry Crisp

We have a rhubarb plant in our back yard & we love it! I am always a bit sad when we have used all of the rhubarb from out plant. Looking outside today I see some more stalks of rhubarb which is great because there is a Rhubarb Coffee Cake I want to make! One of my families favourite recipes is this Rhubarb Strawberry Crisp. 

I use a crisp topping recipe from Norene Gilletz, It is the topping for the Crunchy Apple Crisp in PLEASURES OF YOUR PROCESSOR.  The filling this Rhubarb Strawberry Crisp is  just rhubarb, strawberries & sugar. Easy

Here is the recipe

Rhubarb Strawberry Crisp


For the fruit part of the recipe

4 cups of diced rhubarb…I don’t know how many stalks this is… *** make sure you wash the rhubarb well & dry it the best you can   I cut the rhubarb & submerge it in a big bowl of water for a few minutes then I drain the water off & put the rhubarb onto a kitchen bowl  & get most of the water off

4 cups of sliced strawberries….I cut mine in half, I like bigger chunks then if they were sliced

1 cup sugar *** this made the crisp quite tart so if you like your sweet, add more sugar!

For the topping

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup Vegan Margarine  *** you can use butter if you want

1/3 cup oats


Preheat oven to 350

Grease, I use a non-stick cooking spray, a baking dish…I use a 10 x 8 oval dish for this crisp…so use an appropriate size dish

  1. Combine the rhubarb, strawberries & sugar in a bowl. Mix well so that all of the fruit has some sugar on it!
  2. Put this sugared fruit into the baking dish
  3. Prepare the topping.. Using your food processor, add of the topping ingredients & pulse until well combined but not long…. You can mix this up by hand your prefer… using a fork, mix the brown sugar & flour together…add the margarine & mix so that it forms clumps, then add the oats & mix well. *** mixing by hand will give you a more of an ‘oat’ texture & in the food processor you will have a more smooth texture
  4. Take the blade out of the food processor….
  5. Using your hands, dot the topping all over the fruit
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 1 hour…until the fruit is bubbling & the topping is brown & crispy


Juicy & fruity & crunchy & delicious

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
