Top tips:

  • Try different combinations of vegetables, such as sweetcorn or broccoli.
  • Use different herbs to vary the flavour e.g. parsley or thyme.
  • Be creative with your crumble topping. Try different types of cheese e.g. parmesan or feta or add crushed digestive biscuits instead of oats.
  • Serve the crumble with a side salad.
  • The baking dish gets hot so remember to wear oven gloves.
