Strawberry Rhubarb Toasted Oat Sundae
With buttery toasted oats, a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a quick strawberry-rhubarb sauce, these Strawberry Rhubarb Toasted Oat Sundaes are sure to delight!
- 1/4 cup butter, unsalted
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- pinch salt
- 2 cups old fashioned large flake oats
- 1/2 cup water
- 3 cups rhubarb, chopped
- 3 cups strawberries, sliced
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 container vanilla ice cream or gelato
Heat a large, heavy-bottomed skillet (cast iron works great) to medium-high heat and add in butter, sugar, salt and oats.
Cook, stirring often for about 5-7 minutes until the oats are well-coated and golden.
Remove the oats from the pan into a bowl and set aside.
In the same pan, add water, rhubarb, strawberries and sugar and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Once you reach a boil, turn the pan to medium-low and simmer stirring once and a while until the rhubarb and strawberries have cooked down to a beautiful sauce, about 7-10 minutes.
Set the strawberry-rhubarb sauce off the heat to cool.
To assemble the sundaes, fill the bottom of a cup with oats (about a 1/4 cup of oats per cup), then drizzle in the strawberry-rhubarb compote, followed by a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream and top with more oats and strawberry-rhubarb sauce.
From the delicious and beautiful fruits and vegetables at the market to the longer days, this time of year has me so excited to enjoy it all!
So head to your favourite market, grab some fresh rhubarb and strawberries and your favourite ice cream and make some sundaes to share with family and friends.
Sundaes make me feel like a kid again and I hope you’ll enjoy this version for the kid in you!
Until the next cooking adventure,
