Recipe for stewed rhubarb

I quite like some stewed rhubarb on occasion instead of fruit atop my porridge in the morning. Here’s my recipe for stewing rhubarb.


  • 500g rhubarb
  • 40g brown sugar (8% of weight of rhubarb - use more sugar if you prefer less tartness)
  • 20g butter (4% of weight of rhubarb)


  1. Wash then slice rhubarb
  2. Turn cooktop to low heat
  3. Melt butter in non-stick pan
  4. Add sliced rhubarb and sugar
  5. Stir frequently

It takes 10 to 15 minutes to stew” depending on how thick you like it. Remove from pan when it’s to your liking.

Store in container in fridge.

I usually spoon about 75g on top of my cooked porridge (along with 60g of natural yoghurt, and a sliced banana).

Sliced rhubarb

Pan with melted butter, and sugar

Add sliced rhubarb and stir to mix

Stirring now and again

… and it now looks like stewed rhubarb
