How to store Vegan Apple Crisp

To store Vegan Apple Crisp, allow it to cool completely and then cover it tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil, place it in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 5 days.

How to reheat Vegan Apple Crisp

To reheat Vegan Apple Crisp, preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Place the crisp in an oven-safe dish and cover it with aluminum foil to prevent the topping from burning. Place the dish in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the filling is hot and bubbly. If you prefer a crisper topping, remove the foil during the last 5 minutes of baking.

Alternatively, you can reheat individual servings in the microwave. Place a single serving on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on high for 30-60 seconds or until heated through. 

Keep in mind that the topping may lose some of its crispness when reheated, but it will still be delicious.
