Honey Roasted Rhubarb

Sometimes you need a vacation when you get home from a vacation. I’ve been playing catch up ever since we got back from California. My days have been filled with answering e-mails, laundry, chores, grocery shopping, blog work, and trying to find ways to use our rhubarb. Our four plants exploded while we were on vacation. I don’t want my precious rhubarb to go to waste so I have been making rhubarb recipes like mad. One of my new favorite rhubarb recipes is this Honey Roasted Rhubarb.

This recipe is super simple to make. There are only four ingredients-rhubarb, honey, orange zest, and fresh orange juice. That is it! I’ve been eating Honey Roasted Rhubarb with my plain Chobani Greek yogurt every morning. It is so good! You can also spoon the Honey Roasted Rhubarb over ice cream for dessert. The sweet honey balances out the tart rhubarb while the orange juice and zest gives it a nice refreshing kick.

The Honey Roasted Rhubarb is great served warm or chilled. It will keep in the refrigerator for about four days. I still have some in the fridge and I think it will make a great topping for pancakes, waffles, or French toast this weekend. I can’t wait for breakfast!

    Our neighbors growing up had soooo much rhubarb certain times of the year and they’d give it to us. Too bad I never had it prepared this way…sounds amazing!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this! I’ve been wanting to make something with all the gorgeous rhubarb I keep finding at the farmer’s market, but I only know how to cook rhubarb with strawberries (and strawberry season hasn’t started here yet.) I’ll be making some of this this weekend for sure!

    What a simple but great idea. I can imagine this with yogurt and oats. Yum!

    We eat rhubarb frequently in the summer… and now I’m glad I have yet another way to prepare them

    I don’t eat much rhubarb, but we do have a ton of honey on hand. Looks good and I can only imagine how great it would be over yogurt!

    You can freeze rhubarb so that it’s availble to you all year. I’ve never personally done it, but I have had dishes made with it.

    Wanda — May 18, 2012 @ 8:52 am

    Whitney, I freeze rhubarb every year.You just cut it into the size pieces used in your favourite recipes and pop it in the freezer. Nothing fancy to do. I use it in muffins, crumbles, pies and of course, rhubarb sauce – which I mix with plain yogurt; make smoothies, etc.

    Yum! I love rhubarb but have yet to try it roasted! Definitely adding this to my collection of rhubarb recipes!

    I would love to love rhubarb! Lol! I’ve tried it a couple of times and have been iffy about it, but this recipe looks delicious! I’ll have to try it if I can get my hands on some rhubarb :)

  14. 14

    I have rhubarb, and I didn’t know how or what to make with it. I’m going to try your recipe, it sounds amazing.

    Lauren — May 18, 2012 @ 9:17 am

    I’d probably skip the yogurt and go straight for ice cream. Mmm…

  16. 16

    OK, you have posted so many rhubarb recipes and I have never tried it before! That’s it! I have GOT to try it! This looks great!

    So fun!! I just tried and cooked with rhubarb for the first time last week and love it. It’s pretty expensive around here even though it comes from local farms but my cousin loaded me up with a DRAWER full of it. :) I just made a galette the other day [first time for that too] and am so excited. Definitely love sweetening it with honey. I’m going to check out your recipes so I can use the rest of it!

    Sounds delicious! I’m always jealous of how well your rhubarb does!!! Mine is still green. Maybe your thumb is a bit greener than mine ;)

    It’s so great that you have rhubarb plants in your yard! We didn’t grow rhubarb where I grew up, so the first time I saw it, I thought it was red celery. I avoided it just like I avoided celery, but then someone educated me! I love all the recipes you have for rhubarb, and this looks lovely and simple.

  22. 22

    I have never had rhubarb prepared like this before-looks and sounds absolutely delicious!

    It’s amazing how much deliciousness happens after rhubarb, orange, and honey are combined! This would make for a nice crepe filling!

    I would love to make your recipe. I know you said it was simple. You didn’t post the recipe rather pointed us to another site but I can’t find it. I have visited it several times and triple checked. What am I missing? Your post sounds delicious!

    Maria! This looks so yummy. Wish I were your neighbor…I’d take some off your hands. :)

    Can’t wait for more rhubarb recipes.

    I try to cook with rhubarb as much as humanly possible while it’s in season because it won’t be around for long! Love the sound of this…it would be a great way to dress up some yogurt in the morning!

    I’ve never baked with, let alone grown my own rhubarb, but this recipe alone has me inspired to do so. I love its simplicity and your Greek yogurt pairing :)
