• Strawberry Vanilla Rhubarb Sauce

    Strawberry Vanilla Rhubarb Sauce | stupideasypaleo.comI’ve been on a rhubarb kick lately since it’s in season and easier to find now than at any other time. Rhubarb is a very tart vegetable but is commonly paired with fruit for a sweet counterpoint. I included some chopped dates to lessen the bite, but this sauce is not predominantly sweet.

    I served this sweet-tart sauce on top of a brined pork tenderloin – which I cut into medallions and pan-seared – but it would also be great on chicken or served with some chopped nuts on top as a snack.

    Serves 1     adjust servings

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup rhubarb, sliced
    • 6 pitted dates, soaked and chopped
    • 3 cups strawberries, quartered (about 1 quart)
    • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated (or 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger)
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

    Instructions

    1. Put the dates in a heat-safe bowl and cover with boiling water. Let stand for 10-15 minutes until they soften, then drain the water and chop until it becomes almost a paste. Set aside.
    2. In a large skillet, combine the rhubarb, strawberries and ginger. Cook over medium-low heat until the fruit gets very soft, about 10-15 minutes. You may have to reduce the heat to low to keep it from sticking or burning.
    3. Turn off the heat and stir in the dates and vanilla.
    4. Serve.
