Sugar-less Stewed Rhubarb with Chia May 12 2014
This easy stewed rhubard recipe is delicious and so healthy with no sugar. You can enjoy this for breakfast, dessert or as a snack. Try mixing it with some creamy greek yoghurt, on your favourite granola, porridge or with buckwheat pancakes. I suggest serving it with go-go healthy's new Spiced Granola (available now at the EQ Village Market and online soon) that has hints of ginger, cardamom and cinnamon for a truely delicious snack or meal.
1 bunch of rhubard trimmed and chopped
juice and zest of 1 orange
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon chia seeds
Stevia - I have the 100% pure extract powder and used 4 scoops
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Place the chopped rhubarb, orange juice, zest and water in a saucepan and bring to a simmer over a low heat.
Add stevia and vanilla and keep simmering for 5 - 10 minutes until rhubarb is soft and cooked.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and add in the chia seeds. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes so the chia seeds soak up some of the liquid and thicken the mixture.
Now dig in!
Serves 2 - 4.
