Recipe: Stewed Rhubarb

Super easy recipe devised to help me wean myself off the desire for sugary fruit Yoghurts

Suitable for

  • PP (100g tolerated on a PP day)
  • PV (unlimited on a PV day!)

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of raw diced rhubarb
  • 1/4 cup water
  • (UPDATED:) a pinch of salt, which helps to deepen the flavour and counteracts the “empty sweetness” that comes with using sweetener instead of sugar.
  • Sweetener to taste

Method:

1. chuck water and rhubarb in pot

Halfway to cooked

2. put pot over stove
3. turn heat up to Ludicrous Speed
4. stir occasionally, until it goes gloopy:

5. Add sweetener to taste. I had to put in a fair whack – it was pretty TART! But bear in mind what I said about sweeteners – the spoon for spoon ones are not really very good, as they bulk the artificial sweetener out with maltodextrin or dextrose – both of which are easily digestible carbs. Bad bad BAD spoon for spoon. No cookie.

6. Serve with fat-free natural yoghurt. NOM! 🙂
