Nothing says "Spring is here," like the sight of rhubarb popping up around the farm!
Those beautiful bright red stalks are great for more than just making your spring dishes beautiful, though! 1 cup of rhubarb provides good amounts of your DRI's (Daily Recommended Intake) for calcium and vitamin C, while also providing 1 g of protein.
Since the stalks are very tart, they are usually combined with a lot of sugar to balance them out (strawberry rhubarb pie anyone?). For a savory rhubarb dish, check out Naturally Ella's recipe below for a spicy rhubarb sauce- A great way to get all the health benefits without all the added sugar!
