I really intended to make a raspberry and apple dessert but as luck would have it my raspberries turned moldy before I had a chance. Blech! Hate when that happens. So I went with the strawberries instead figuring it has to be just as good if not better! I’m calling this a “crumble” because the topping isn’t going to 100% cover your fruit and it isn’t completely crispy but oh so good. Because we are a dairy free and soy free home (at least for right now) I made this with Earth Balance spread that has no soy and no dairy. You can make it with regular butter or margarine too. Love a dessert like this that I can whip up really quick and it’s not full of chemicals and fat!
