Rhubarb & coconut

Rhubarb & Coconut tart

Rhubarb tart is one of those very rustic tarts that remind me of my childhood. My mom has always grown rhubarb in her garden! It is sweet but sour, and the rhubarb provides an attractive red and green dual color. . 

This version is very easy to prepare and delicious. You can serve it with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
