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.

Ingredients:

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

Method:

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.
