Weekly Recipe

You want a little something to satisfy your sweet tooth, but there's nothing in the kitchen, except for the bag of rhubarb in the freezer. I don't know about you, but this happens to me all the time. And I have just the recipe to make it work...

Rhubarb Crunch

4 cups diced rhubarb
1 cup sugar (brown or white)
1 egg
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup quick cooking oats
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup butter


Preheat oven to 375*. Lightly grease 9x13 inch baking pan (I used 8x8...the smaller the pan, the thicker the bars). In a large mixing bowl combine rhubarb, sugar, egg, and 3 tablespoons flour. Stir well and spread evenly into baking dish. Set aside. In another bowl, combine brown sugar, oats, and 1 1/2 cups flour. Stir well, and then cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle mixture over rhubarb layer. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until the edges get bubbly.

A dessert that's made from vegetables? Sweet!
