I just couldn't resist the rhubarb in the veg shop today. It's the first I've seen this season and it was not cheap - £4.50 for 4 good-sized sticks, enough for a decent crumble though. I have to say that by the time we round to pudding there was only half a crumble left, as I had a little taster before my 5 mile run and then the vultures descended on it on their return home from school. Truly delicious and brimming with goodness, rhubarb is highly nutritious and packed with vitamin C, fibre and phytonutrients, and if you make your crumble with wholemeal flour and oats, the only real baddies are the sugar and the butter....great for a treat and a perfect dessert if you are training. Nice and substantial, the fruit and the crumble topping are low GI so in theory should keep you going longer than the average dessert.
