Make something with Rhubarb AND make a recipe you have never tried before

Killing two tasks with one hour in the kitchen - that's what I like.

Included in our organic vege box last week was a rather sad looking bunch of rhubarb, or have I been spoilt by my mothers amazing examples of the red stuff?

The recipe to attempt was Vegan Rhubarb and Apple Crumble.

"VEGAN CRUMBLE?" you scream, reminiscing about mama's buttery, sugary goodness - "IT'LL TASTE LIKE GRAVEL".

Step One: get recipe from vegan flatmates recipe book.

Step Two: chop up rhubarb and apple.

Step Three: add dates that have been soaked in boiling water - neglecting the need for extra sugar.

Step Four: make crumble top, using rice bran oil, agave syrup (sweet stuff that vegans really like), muscovado sugar and oats.

Step Five: jam into dish, bake, then serve in Crown Lynn bowls.

Step Six: feed Vegans (they are always hungry)

Step Seven: Bask in the praise of your vegan baking endeavours.
