We are approaching summer in tiny steps. The first heralds arrive in April and are called asparagus and rhubarb. With them, the culinary diversity on the markets begins until it ends again in August with fresh cherries. Until then, we try to prepare as much as possible with the fresh rhubarb cause they are not available all year round like apples or pears. Thus we show you a simple and easy recipe for a vegan rhubarb tart.

The bottom of the tart is a classic shortcrust pastry that consists only of flour, sugar, and butter. We add a lightly sweetened quark cream on top of it but kept the cream very simple. You could usually add a little lemon zest, but the rhubarb is most of the time quite sour, so you don't need any sour taste on top. You can, of course, change the pattern for the tart. Be creatice! You could arrange the pieces in a kind of spiral or cut the rhubarb into strips. We are sure that your tart will look very, very pretty in the end!
