Rhubarb Compote & Easy Rhubarb Parfait

Rhubarb compote is a mixture of rhubarb and sugar cooked into a tart, sweet sauce. It can be used as a dessert topping, with yogurt or right from the jar.

I have two rhubarb patches in my yard. I planted both of them myself, as the yard previously did not have any. One is in a very hot and sunny spot, and it has done spectacularly well since I put it there.

One has been moved several times, as I can’t seem to find a place for it to thrive. In any case, the bigger plant has been producing more than enough, and I have been putting it to good use so far this spring.

So far I’ve made a Rhubarb Upside Down Cake, rhubarb simple syrup and a (failed) rhubarb margarita, and next I plan to make these Rhubarb Pie Bars.

But what I’ve been making most of all, is a simple Rhubarb Compote. All you need to do is toss a bunch of chopped rhubarb with some sugar, and cook it until it forms a sauce. I actually felt a little silly even writing up a recipe for it, but if that makes it even easier, so be it.

If you like rhubarb, this compote is pretty much good with everything. In lieu of jam on toast, mixed into your porridge, as a dessert topping to cake or ice cream, or in these Easy Rhubarb Parfaits (mine never looks this pretty when I make them for myself FYI). But most often, you’ll find me standing over the kitchen counter, eating it straight out of the jar. It really is that good.

Servings: 4
Calories: 270kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 cups rhubarb compote
  • 2 cups plain or vanilla Greek yogurt

Instructions

  • If you want to make your parfait look beautiful, layer 2 tablespoons of rolled oats in the bottoms of 4 glasses or dessert dishes. Add 1/4 cup Greek yogurt, then 1/4 cup rhubarb compote. Repeat the layering with the remaining oats, yogurt, and compote. Top with an additional dollop of yogurt and a sprinkle of oats, or with fresh fruit as desired.

Notes

These parfaits can be made ahead of time, in which case the oats will soften. Keep refrigerated and cover with plastic until ready to eat.
