Compote is the best way to refresh during warm summer evenings.
Rhubarb is a delicious & nutritious vegetable that can be easily transformed into yummy desserts, sides, and drinks. It’s low in FODmaps and cholesterol, and it’s a good source of dietary fiber, vitamins (C & K), and minerals (calcium, potassium, and manganese). Mind the amounts you consume, though. I don’t recommend drinking the whole pitcher in one day. It may trigger your symptoms!
rhubarb (around 300g),
1 liter of water,
a splash of lemon juice,
3 tablespoons of sugar,
Chop rhubarb into 1cm chunks. Throw 3 tablespoons of sugar into the saucepan.
Sprinkle sugar with water and cook until it bubbles. Add rhubarb, stir and cook for around 2 minutes.
Pour in water, stir again and bring it to the boil. Add a splash of lemon juice and cook on small fire for the next 20 minutes (until rhubarb gets soft and mushy).
Use a colander to drain off the liquid. Pour compote into the clean pitcher, stir and let it cool of to the room temperature. Keep it in the fridge.
Add more sugar if required, but be careful! The recommended dose of sugar on a low FODmap diet is 1 tablespoon or less per serving.
