I’ve never been much of a dessert person, but lately I’ve been craving a little something after dinner. Always on the quest for a healthy alternative (cause let’s face it – a chocolate bar is always an option!) but wanting something a little more dessert-y than simple fruit, this recipe satisfies both criteria. And the best part is – it’s very versatile. Check out all the menu items you can create with easy rhubarb compote.
What’s in it:
6 cups rhubarb – well washed and chopped
1/8 cup water – add more if necessary
1/4 cup maple syrup – add more if prefer sweeter
How to make it:
Nothing to it. Combine all ingredients into a saucepan and simmer on low heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring regularly, until rhubarb has a jam-like consistency. Cool and serve.
What to make with it:
Organic yoghurt (we like Pinehedge Farms) with rhubarb compote , chopped fresh strawberries and granola topper
Biscotti drizzled with warm rhubarb compote
Rhubarb Ice Cream Sundaes
Fresh blueberries topped with rhubarb compote
Strawberries dipped in chocolate and drizzled with rhubarb compote
Toast with rhubarb compote
Get as creative as you’d like! Enjoy!
