Foodie Tuesday – Mixed Berry Crisp


As you may have heard, we here at Go Folic recently created our own Savory & Soulful recipe brochure.  Here’s another tasty dish from our new brochure, just in time for summer!  Our mixed berry crisp features strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries, which are all high in folate – and currently in season at a grocery store or farmers’ market near you!

Here’s a Go Folic tip: if you can find “fortified” or “enriched” whole wheat flour, use that in place of white flour for added fiber.  It will taste just as good!
