I went out into the garden and picked a basket full of apples to make this really simple and healthy apple crumble. The variety of apples that we have growing on the tree is called Transparent, and they are absolutely perfect for cooking. Just a little bit of heat applied for a even short time will turn the skin soft so you don’t need to peel them at all. If you want to make apple sauce (which I often do!), just heat it a bit longer, mix everything with a spoon, and the apples pretty much puree themselves!
To start with, I sliced up about twelve apples and arranged them in a pie dish. For the crumble topping, I took some rolled oats, pecans, brown sugar, a bit of flour and just a touch of room temperature vegan butter, and mixed this all together very thoroughly. Sprinkle this over the apples and that’s pretty much all there is to it! You can either bake this in the oven, or what I usually do is just pop it in the microwave for just over ten minutes until the apples are soft. The crumble tastes incredible served with soy milk custard or some coconut ice cream.
