Vegan Strawberry Rhubarb Tart (Gluten Free, too!)

vegan strawberry rhubarb tart

I recently went strawberry picking for the first time and was *blown away* by the flavor nuances one berry can have over the other.  The richness and diversity of fresh berries (fresh anything, really) is incredible. I left the farm that afternoon - giddy with dirty feet and pink palms - and very excited to come home and find ways to eat more strawberries.

So, I whipped up a more vibrant version of the spring staple: strawberry rhubarb pie.  

This strawberry rhubarb tart is vegan, gluten free and requires minimal oven time.  It’s also, like, really good frozen.
