Roasted Rhubarb with Vanilla Yogurt

It looks like spring is here, at last! And let me tell you one thing…it feels really good. Every year, the beautiful cycle of nature repeats itself, and it’s a wonderful awakening after the long winter months, a fresh start. I found bright pink rhubarb at the market and though it was still pricey, I couldn’t resist buying a few stalks and transformed it into this simple pudding. You could also add granola and enjoy it for breakfast.

I usually tend to stew rhubarb to make compote, but I found out that baking it in the oven is another great way of serving it as it keeps its shape and looks pretty. I served it with goat’s yogurt, but cow’s, soy or coconut yogurt would work well too.

4.Drizzle the fruit juice, 2tbsp agave or maple syrup and 1tsp vanilla extract over the rhubarb. Add the vanilla pod. Place in the oven for 30min, giving it a stir halfway through.
5.In the meantime, add the yogurt to the bowl with the reserved vanilla seeds, as well as 1tbsp agave/maple syrup and 1tsp vanilla extract. Mix well.
