Here's an easy to make low-carb and gluten-free rhubarb crumble recipe. It's one of the best ways to enjoy this tart spring seasonal crop!
It was so exciting to see rhubarb in the produce section of my local grocery store! So, of course, I just had to grab a few stalks.
However, this time, I wanted to make a low carb gluten free rhubarb crumble recipe. I had never made it before, so I used this recipe as a guide.
I was curious to see how the rhubarb tasted plain without the strawberries. And, I wanted more of a flour crust versus a crunchy nut based one.
For the recipe, I used four stalks of rhubarb. Mine were a very deep red. In fact, the woman working the grocery store checkout commented on the color.
It's funny because I was in the self-checkout and couldn't get the rhubarb stalks to register after weighing them. It turns out I had to balance them upright in the shape of a tipi.
So, the lady who was assigned to the self-checkout lanes had to come help me. That's when she told me what a nice color the rhubarb was.
All the trouble buying this tasty fruit was worth it! The sugar-free gluten free rhubarb crumble was super delicious!
The crumble was devoured almost immediately after taking the photos. And it was just as tasty or even better than the usual mix which adds strawberries.
I can tell you that the next time I go to buy groceries, I'm picking up a lot more rhubarb. I just love it's tart flavor and want to freeze a bunch for later when it's out of season.
I've got to get on my husband to plant some rhubarb in our backyard. I want to make sure I've got a good stock of it in the future!
I'll definitely be making this low carb sugar and gluten free rhubarb crumble again. But, I need to find a few more ways to enjoy this yummy spring crop.
The color of the fresh rhubarb was really appealing. I'd love to find a similar variety to grow in our yard. So I'll be visiting the gardening centers this weekend to look for some healthy plants.
Technically, rhubarb is a vegetable, but since it's treated like a fruit in the kitchen, that's what I always call it. If you want to learn more about it, check out the page devoted to it on Wikipedia.
