Grow an organic herb garden – it’s easy!

Ever stand in front of the herb aisle,where a teensy 15g bottle costs almost $5, and say ” I should just grow my own herbs!”. Well me too. i finally put my dirt where my mouth is. All you need are some cool potting plants that you will love so you actually use them (these stacking ones were from Costco for 24.99). Some organic dirt and potted plants ( about a dollar each) then put it all together and enjoy!!! We find ourselves using those herbs more often now and we even planted a curry bush!!! No idea how that will turn out. Now get inspired and go grow something!

Easy Organic Rhubarb Crisp

Do you grow rhubarb? Time to break out a family recipe I’m in love with! Grandma Purnell made this and reminded me that I need to eat rhubarb EVERYTHING during the spring. A great tip is to freeze it in 1/2″ lengths during the winter so you can grab and go for this quick recipe. Perfect for a summer patio dinner. Drool….

For 4-8 servings you will need:

7c rhubarb in 1/2″ lengths
5 tbsp sugar
1c flour (we use whole wheat, but any flour will do)
1/2c organic coconut sugar (up to 1c if you like it sweeter)
1/2c flour
1/2c quick cook organic oats
1/2 tsp salt
1/2c butter or mix in some coconut butter/oil to achieve similar results
optional: blueberries or strawberries

Step 1 in the vintage curvy bowl. Yes.

Put the rhubarb into a 10′ casserole dish. Mix the first two amounts of sugar and flour and coat the rhubarb. Combine all of the remaining ingredients until you reach a crumbly mixture. Spread evenly over the top and pat it down lightly. Bake for 40-50min at 375F.

Browned crumble plus soft rhubarb= ready!

Serve with a scoop of homemade ice cream, organic whipped cream or some greek yogurt! Although it serves about 8 people, be prepared to go back for 2nds.
