No qualms about it- we are starry eyed for Rhubarb! Rhubarb's season is in full swing, and you've probably noticed it hanging out at the Farmer's Market and in your backyard quite a bit. Rhubarb is not only very easy to come by, but it's jam packed with vitamins, fibre and antioxidants, making it a powerhouse of nutrients. It is one of my fave sources of calcium -- but don't eat too much or you'll be a pooping machine!
Up there are my (soon-to-be) world famous rhubarb pancakes. I don't have this recipe for you yet as it is being perfected for my second book. What I would suggest is that if you have UnDiet- then use the blueberry pancake recipe and swap out the blueberries for rhubarb. Just lightly sauté it in coconut oil and a little honey first.
What I do have for you is this selection of seasonal rhubarb favourites.
These make a great afternoon tea snack or maybe even an addition to a weekend brunch. Get the recipe here.
This is a must ever season. So simple to make. Simmer together some apples and rhubarb, sweeten with honey and you'll be loving this off the spoon! Get the recipe here.
Well now we're getting a little fancy pants over here. I have no idea what inspired me to try these out a few years back but I did and they were amazing. Get the recipe here.
This cake is cottage favourite. The combo of sweet and tangy with this moist cake (the same base as the Spice Carrot Muffins you'll find in UnDiet) make this a winner every time. Get the recipe.
