Rhubarb yogurt parfait

photo rhubab dessert

4 cups rhubarb (cut into small pieces)

1/2 cup water (can adjust as desired)

1/2 cup granulated sugar

Yogurt

Cook the rhubarb in a pan with very small amount of water and the sugar, covered, over low- medium heat till it  is tender, stirring occasionally. Let is cool (see pic how it looks after being cooked). Place the yogurt in a pretty glass and the stewed rhubarb alternately by about 1/4 cup fulls, ending and beginning with the yogurt. Top with sliced almonds/walnuts/sprinkles/fruit (I used some leftover strawberry jam and fresh strawberries)

You will have quite a bit left over of the cooked rhubarb. It freezes well for future use in muffins/ breads/pies. You can keep in the fridge for up to a week.

Kale spagetti with broccoli

  1. Chop kale/greens into small pieces; wash
  2. Add kale to spagetti while they boil.You can sneak in chopped carrots/ peas/ tomatoes.
  3. When spagetti are done, drain and add a little bit of butter and your favorite sauce (we use plain feta cheese or a mix of shredded cheeses)

Green leafy veggies (and canned beans/corn) can be added also to rice while it cooks (regular slow cooking rice).

Broccoli- wash,cut into florets,mix well with 1-3 tbsp of oil and salt to taste. Put in a dry pan on med heat and stir occasionally (3-5m; don’t overdo to keep crunchy and brighter green)

What is Rhubarb? How to use it?

 

Rhubab (Wikipedia pic)

According to Wikipedia, “rhubarb is usually considered to be a vegetable; however, in the United States, a New York court decided in 1947 that since it was used in the United States as a fruit,it was to be counted as a fruit for the purposes of regulations and duties.”

So, it is a fruit.

Only stalks are  edible. While you can eat them raw, most commonly 1-inch pieces of the stalks are stewed (boiled in very small amount of water) with sugar to combat their extreme tartness(1/2 to 3/4 cup of sugar is added for each pound of rhubarb) until soft. Use only a little water as rhubarb contains a lot of water itself and you risk to end up with rhubarb soup. In the US, rhubarb  it is most often teamed up with strawberries / cinnamon/ nutmeg and baked into pies and tarts. A typical English preparation would use ginger; the French may puree it into a sauce and serve it with fish.

Swiss chard salad/side

swiss chard

  • Swiss chard
  • Lemon zest, olive oil, half a cup of toasted sesame seeds (hazelnuts/walnuts), salt

Wash the chard and roughly chop both the leaves and stalks (if stalk look too rough I discard). Steam chard until tender, about 5 minutes. Add dressing to taste. Chill before serving. This salad stands a lot of interpretation (you can add steamed kale / chicken / tomatoes / mix it with raw salad greens)

Broccoli and chickpeas salad

2 -3 cans of chick peas
