Rhubarb Mango Pistachio and Amaretti Crumbles

Recipe From What's For Lunch, Honey?


For the fruit

45og rhubarb, cut into 1 cm pieces

2 mangoes, cut into cubes

1 tablespoon muscovado sugar

small piece ginger, finely grated

For the topping

170g buckwheat flour

handful of Amaratti biscuit, coarsely crushed

85g cold butter, cubes

85g muscovado sugar

85g pistachios, roughly chopped

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

pinch of fleur de sel


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees C. Lightly butter 6 individual ramekin bowls.
  2. Make the topping first by putting all the ingredients into a large bowl and using your fingertips rub the butter into the dry ingredients to form a few small chunks of mixture very resembling coarse breadcrumbs. Place this mixture in the freezer while you prepare the fruit.
  3. Put the rhubarb slices in a saucepan with the sugar and 4 tbsp water. Cook over a gentle heat for 2-3 minutes until the rhubarb just begins to become slightly tender but is still crunchy. It will cook further in the oven. Remove from the heat and stir in the mangoes and stem ginger. Spoon the mixture into the ramekin forms.
  4. Take the crumble topping from the freezer and with your fingertips sprinkle the topping over the forms. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until the tops are golden and the fruit is hot and bubbling.
  5. Serve warm with scoops of vanilla ice cream.
