Rhubarb

February 22, 2009

Success! This is not so much a recipe as a reminder that one can pan fry rhubarb in butter (or in my case, nitrate free sausage drippings). I added 2 tbsp of frozen blueberries for a touch of sweetness (I mushed them up in the pan so their juice created a kind of sauce). The result was pleasingly sweet-tart. I can see why people make pies, compotes, and chutneys out of it. Might be good with meat.

This is my second time cooking rhubarb, and I was pleasantly surprised.

Breakfast: peppers and broccoli in a coconut curry sauce fried in coconut oil, 1 scrambled egg, coffee with 1.3 tbsp heavy cream. Handful of walnuts.

Lunch: 4 oz. bison steak pan fried in olive oil & butter, 1 medium yam.

I’m hoping that the yam will affect insulin & leptin levels positively. I still feel weirdly hydrated.
