Despite looking cumbersome with all its leaves, rhubarb is very quick and easy to prepare and cook. You could use the stovetop for this recipe but we opt for the microwave because we’re lazy and forgetful at times. Add this deliciously tart rhubarb to an apple crumble or serve with greek yoghurt for a snack.

You will need

  • Bunch of rhubarb, leaves removed, washed and chopped into 3cm lengths
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon sugar

What you do
Place the wet rhubarb in a microwave proof dish or pyrex bowl and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Stir, cover and place in the microwave for 3 minutes on high. Remove and leave for 1 minute. The rhubarb should be soft but still be intact.  You can zap for another minute if not cooked enough to preference.
