ROASTED SPICED RHUBARB WITH DATES AND YOGHURT

ROASTED SPICED RHUBARB WITH DATES AND YOGHURT

This dish has hints of the Middle East. The roasted rhubarb works so well with a luscious date sauce and pistachios. Serve with a generous dollop of thick yoghurt and you'll be in dessert heaven!

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 4

Method

Preheat oven to 175C

Toast the pistachio nuts on a rimmed baking sheet, tossing occasionally, until golden brown: about 8-10 minutes. Leave to cool, then roughly chop.

Place rhubarb on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment. Roast in a preheated oven until the rhubarb is tender but not falling apart: about 20-25 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring dates, zest, vanilla, 1 tablespoon of the honey, cinnamon and 1 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan.

Reduce heat and simmer gently until the dates are very soft and liquid is reduced by half: about 8-10 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Blend to a smooth sauce using a stick blender.

Whisk yoghurt and remaining honey in a small bowl.

Serve the roasted rhubarb topped with the date sauce along with the honeyed pistachios.
