Rhubarb and Apple Pie.

Want something sweet but not too sweet? Something comforting but ""guilt"" free?
Let me introduce you this rhubarb&apple pie sugar and fat free!(unhealthy and processed ones that is)

Like diversity and change?
This recipe can be modified to create three slightly different pies, to please everyone!

Ingredients :
500g of rhubarb
4 to 5 apples
vegan crust -you can do it yourself or buy it-
vanilla powder
Optional : 2 peaches and oat flakes.

Start by cutting the rhubarb without peeling it, and let it cook in a non sticking pan with a bit of water and some stevia. I love the bittersweet taste of rhubarb so I usually don't add a lot, however make sure to add to your taste. Cover and let it cook for about 10minutes, when it's done you should have something that looks like that :

Drain it and put it aside.
Then do the exact same thing for apples. Cut them in small piece and cool them until they're soft.
Then pour the rhubarb mixture onto the crust and also add the apples.

If you wanted to add a bit of a twist, that would be now! You can add peaches to the apples, the tastes go perfectly together. Don't forget a bit of vanilla if you like it, and if you have a very sweet tooth, take some oat flakes and caramelize them in a pan by just heating them with sugar or stevia. Add that on top of your pie once it's done !

Easy, quick, delicious, healthy and vegan obviously!

  1. Oh this looks amazing! :) I'm definitely going to try baking this!

  2. I'm in love with rhubarb, it's so refreshing. I'm planning on making a strawberry and rhubarb pie soon.

  3. Do you not blind bake your pastry case first? it looks a little undercooked on the bottom!

    Rhubarb is delicious but should not be overcooked, young shoots are sweeter ( less acid) and need cooking for little time.

    I always find French tarts too dry for my taste - I always cook fruit pies & tarts that are moist in the fruit with a very short pastry, but that needs fat & sugar which I guess doesn't fit with your diet.
