It’s strawberry picking season in NC currently and one of my favorite things to do with too many strawberries is to add rhubarb and make a delicious and healthy fruit compote.
Rhubarb is rich in fiber which makes it a great addition to help keep you regular and improve gut health. It’s also a great source of Vitamin K.
While I grew up eating strawberry rhubarb pies, I now enjoy this awesome tart and sweet flavor combo more regularly on yogurt, cottage cheese and even toast!
- 3 stalks of rhubarb
- 1 cup of strawberries
- 1 squeeze of lemon juice
- Low cal sweetener of choice, to taste (I like this recipe very tart!)
- Clean and chop rhubarb stalks. Clean and cut strawberries. Add both to a non-stick pan on medium heat.
- Add lemon.
- Add sweetener.
- Let simmer on low, approximately 5-10minutes or until fruit is tender. Make sure to stir occasionally.
