This delightful rhubarb and blueberry galette is a tart and tangy dessert, with just enough sweetness!
Rhubarb season is short, but it's a wonderful ingredient to bake with, so take advantage of it while you can.
Rhubarb is often paired with strawberries, which is a delicious combination, but pairing it with blueberries is absolutely phenomenal! It's a wonderful sour + sweet combination.
Why You'll Love this Rhubarb Dessert
This tart and sweet dessert is actually quite easy to pull together. It requires minimal hands-on time - especially if you buy a premade pie crust.
I find galettes much easier than pies. Because of their rustic nature and fold over the edges, it's much easier to work with the pastry.
This recipe serves 6 and would be very welcomed at a brunch or summer dinner!
Ingredients You'll Need
Crust - You can use a pre-made pie crust for this recipe or make this excellent pie crust from Sally's Baking Addiction. You'll also need an egg for the wash (this helps the crust brown beautifully) and an optional sprinkle of raw sugar or cinnamon sugar.
Filling - You'll need 2 large stalks (¾ pound or 3 cups chopped) rhubarb, 1 cup of blueberries, ¾ cup granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon of corn starch, and ½ teaspoon cardamom or cinnamon.
What to Know About Rhubarb
Rhubarb is actually a vegetable but it tastes like fruit (when paired with some sugar) and bakes like fruit. It pairs well with berries, apples, citrus flavors, cinnamon, cardamom, vanilla, and rose water. It can also be used in savory dishes and works well with pork and chicken.
Rhubarb leaves are poisonous to humans, so be sure to cut all parts of them off the stalk before using them. Some rhubarb variants are ripe when they have some green on them, but typically ripe rhubarb will be very bright pink.
Rhubarb is in season in spring and summer. There is usually a first, larger harvest from April to June and a second harvest in June and July.
