Roasted Rhubarb Recipe

Roasted Rhubarb Recipe
Got Rhubarb? For those lucky souls who have a large rhubarb crop, the easiest way to prep it for use in dozens of recipes, is to roast it. Roasted Rhubarb is delicious on its own, especially with a scoop of ice cream, but once prepared is also ready for use in delicious desserts such as crumbles, cakes, and puddings. It’s a good idea (and a timesaver) to make several batches of Roasted Rhubarb at once; the cooked rhubarb can be packaged and frozen for use in recipes all year round.
Roasted Rhubarb is a good dessert as is for those watching their weight, since there is no fat and only 46 calories per serving. For a few more calories, pair it with little fat-free frozen yogurt. For those who aren't watching their weight, use it as a topping for ice cream or cake squares. The cooked rhubarb can also be refrigerated for several days.
