Rhubarb has fiber, vitamin K, antioxidants from Vitamin C and A. Best of all, it’s a low maintenance vegetable, comes back each year and tastes better the older the plant gets. This plant needs to be celebrated indeed! I love the tartness of rhubarb but having said that, I also like it paired with a little sweetness. I enjoy a good rhubarb compote in a variety of ways!
- 3 cups of diced rhubarb
- 2 cups of halved strawberries
- 2 tbsp of honey
- 1/4 cup of water
Bring to boil then simmer for 15 min. Use emersion blender to mix.
Ideas on where to put the compote:
1. Add to Overnight chia pudding
- 1 cup of plain almond milk
- 1/2 cup of chia seeds
- 2 tbsp of maple syrup
Let sit overnight
2. Top warm or cold on fiasco’s bourbon vanilla bean ice-cream or dairy free creamy coconut!
3. Top off a cheesecake
4. Add atop waffles
