Rhubarb- It's Not Just For Dessert

In fact- since it's a vegetable, it's a little strange that it's so often a dessert.
As a member of the celery family,
and an IP friendly vegetable,
it should not be overlooked!

Since the season for rhubarb is very short, this is one of those moments we have to embrace.
Be Inspired this weekend to try something new!

Add a little Rhubarb to your salad

Make a Vanilla Rhubarb Smoothie!
1 cup frozen diced rhubarb
1 vanilla ready-made drink
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cocoa powder
*Place everything in a small blender and blend away!

A few rhubarb tips:
When you find it in the store, buy a bunch and freeze the extra if you don't have plans to use it all at once.
If it gets a little wilty, do the same thing you would do with celery- stick it in some cold water and it will get crispy all over again.
Also like celery, it is stringy on the outside. Feel free to peel before cutting, cooking or freezing.
