Best non-dessert recipe for rhubarb
I was looking for a recipe that used rhubarb that wasn't a dessert. This recipe is terrific for its use of rhubarb in a savory main course that is just delicious. As rhubarb in many ways tastes more like a fruit than a vegetable I was worried that my husband, who really dislikes fruit mixed with his meat, wouldn't like this dish. He loved it. The ginger, saffron and rhubarb mix for a flavorful and colorful dish reminiscent of Indian cooking. I served it over brown/wild rice mixed and with fresh asparagus on the side. I used yellow onions instead of red onions and my rhubarb was still a nice red color. As with all rhubarb dishes, be careful not to overcook as the rhubarb will break down and just become strings.
Pros: best usage of rhubarb not in a dessert, nice color
Cons: not for those who dislike ginger or curries. Don't overcook your rhubarb!
