Rhubarb is a vegetable, though the stalks are typically used in jams and desserts; its tart flavor makes it the perfect companion for strawberries.


  • 2 pounds rhubarb, sliced crosswise ¾ inch thick

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces

  • ½ cup packed light-brown sugar

  • 1 cup rolled oats

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • Ice cream, for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a 9-by-13-inch baking dish, combine rhubarb, sugar, and 1/4 cup flour; set aside.

  2. In the bowl of a food processor, combine remaining 1/2 cup flour and the butter. Pulse until the butter pieces are pea-size. Add brown sugar, oats, and cinnamon. Pulse to combine. Sprinkle over rhubarb.

  3. Bake until rhubarb is tender and topping is golden, 35 to 45 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream, if desired.
