I made this Rhubarb and Strawberry Crumble with the addition of chia seeds in the oat topping a few weeks back.
Since then the strawberries in the garden have come to a halt, I have to admit they have not been as productive this year as they have previous years. Perhaps they are getting old and I need to renew the ground with new strawberry plants. Also I have noted the wild strawberries from the neighbours garden are creeping into ours, oppressing the growth of the traditional strawberries with vigorous leafage growth.
The rhubarb plant however is doing fabulously, emerging from the earth in true style .
I have loads more rhubarb sticks to pick, but this is the first rhubarb recipe of the year.
The rolled oats were a lot more larger than the ones I normally use which made this crumble a little more chewier, but still very nice to eat covered in a blanket of double cream. You can have custard if you want, but its been a little warm for that I think.
Adapt any Rhubarb and Strawberry Crumble recipe you use. Just stir in 1 - 2 teaspoons chia seed in the crumble topping.
