What is Rhubarb?
Rhubarb is a leafy vegetable that is tart, red and high in vitamin C and fibre. The sour taste comes from oxalic acid. Rhubarb is one of those things that you either love or hate. It’s mostly used as a fruit filling for pies and tarts but there are so many more ways to eat this sweet vegetable! If you’ve never had roasted rhubarb before, prepare yourself for something magical. Soft sweet stalks with a hint of tartness—they’re amazing on their own or combined with other ingredients.
Due to its versatility and unique taste, rhubarb is often treated like fruit in cooking, resulting in varied culinary uses that include both sweet and savoury dishes. By combining rhubarb with sweeteners like sugar or honey, you can balance its sourness and create a deliciously sweet and tangy flavour. Furthermore, you can stew, roast, or grill rhubarb to bring out its unique flavor and texture. Despite being a vegetable, rhubarb’s culinary uses are more similar to those of fruit, making it a versatile and popular ingredient in many different types of cuisine.
Roasting rhubarb enhances its natural sweetness and maintains some of its tartness. When roasted, the rhubarb becomes tender and slightly caramelized, making it a delicious and versatile ingredient.
Roasted rhubarb is a versatile ingredient that you can use to top yoghurt, ice cream, salads, or grain bowls. Additionally, it’s perfect for baking cakes, and muffins, or as a filling for tarts and pies.
For a savoury application, roasted rhubarb can be served alongside roasted meats or added to sauces and glazes to add a tangy and slightly sweet flavour. Overall, roasted rhubarb is a delicious and versatile ingredient that adds a unique touch to both sweet and savoury dishes.
