Vegan Rice Bowl with Savoury Rhubarb Sauce

This sauce is one of my favourites and in our first CSA basket of the year we received some beautiful fresh rhubarb. Rice, some veggies and this sauce make a great combo.

2 cups cooked brown rice
Savoury rhubarb sauce recipe (To this recipe I add some water to make the whole thing blend easier)
8 cups fresh spinach, roughly chopped
1 Tbsp honey
1/2 tsp garam masala
3 beets, very thinly sliced
6 radishes, very thinly sliced
1 green onion, finely sliced
Fresh mint for garnish

Begin by cooking rice and then follow this recipe to make rhubarb sauce. If the ingredients don't blend well add some water to the blender. Meanwhile clean and chop spinach and cook in a large pan on medium heat until spinach begins to wilt. Add honey and garam masala and take off heat. You can leave the beets fresh or cook them for a few minutes until tender.

To assemble
Place rice in a bowl and top with some wilted spinach. Cover with rhubarb sauce and top with beets, radishes, green onion and garnish with a mint sprig.

  1. Holy Hannah, that looks delicious. Kudos for finding a way to make Rhubarb something other than a dessert!
