Growing up Scandinavian, I ate a lot of strawberry rhubarb crisp. The sweet and tart dichotomy of fruits topped with buttery, crispy pillows of love remain a fond childhood memory. As an adult, it's a comfort food. And now, it's lectin free!
Rhubarb is a super food! It has calcium and vitamin K for strong bones. It's also a good source of fiber, vitamin C, iron and manganese.If you love strawberry rhubarb crisp but shy away due to the lectins in the traditional crisp toppings, which are made from wheat flour and often oats, have I got a dessert for you!This Lectin Free Gourmet version of my favorite Swedish dessert tastes like the real thing. It's easy to make and will certainly satisfy your craving for the stuff.
