Rhubarb breakfast bowl

During the week, I’m guilty of repeating often that I should pack my lunch, or should eat a good breakfast, but rarely getting it done.

As we count down the days to our move, though, to a slightly smaller town without so much as a coffee shop, it’s beginning to dawn on me that I might not have a choice.

Enter the breakfast bowl — quick, delicious, and hands-down healthier than what I usually wolf down on the run.

… now if I could just talk the husband into that espresso machine, we’d be set.

Rhubarb breakfast bowl

Ingredients:
Greek yogurt
Granola
Chia seeds
Grapefruit or other seasonal fruit
Pre-made Rhubarb Syrup (Recipe below)

Mix all to taste and enjoy!

… then, when you come home in the evening, use a little leftover syrup to make this.

Rhubarb Syrup
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large stalks rhubarb, coarsely chopped, greens removed

Combine sugar and 1 1/2 cups water in a medium saucepan over high heat. Cook until sugar is dissolved. Add rhubarb and cook until slightly softened, about 5 minutes, then remove from heat and steep for 1 hour. Drain liquid (set aside stewed rhubarb and add to your breakfast bowl or use another day!) and cook over high heat until slightly reduced and thickened, about 5 minutes. Transfer the syrup to a jar. Cover and chill in the refrigerator until ready to use.

    Oh my gosh, don’t discard the rhubarb! Stewed rhubarb is delicious. Scoop in the seeds of a vanilla bean (stew the bean in there too and then remove it at the end). The best.

      Oh my gosh Jaime you’re so right!! Stewed rhubarb is one of my favorite things! A little brandy is amazing as well. I’m removing that silly note immediately.
