Cheese is such a staple in the typical British diet. We use it heavily in dishes but more and more people are choosing to cut it out from their diet for a variety of reasons. Whenever I’ve asked a vegan what they missed most about the way they used to eat, the most common answer I get is “cheese!”.
I must admit I’m not the biggest fan of fruit pies, or cooked fruit desserts. I prefer eating my fruit raw and cold; however, rhubarb is one of those fruit (a vegetable, actually!) that you can’t eat any other way apart from cooked…so I thought why not give it a try. It’s so deliciously tart and not too sweet. In fact, I only used 2 tbsp sweetener in the filling and it was just right! Traditional recipes use anywhere between ½ and 1 cup of sugar for the filling alone!
