Ingredients

  • 18 oz rhubarb 500 g, peeled and cut into 1.5 inches - 4 cm logs (weighted after being peeled and cut - about 10 stalks)
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 9 oz strawberries 250 g, hulled and cut into quarters (weighted after being hulled) + a few for serving
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds

Toppings

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup granola use gluten free granola to make this recipe GF

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine rhubarb, lemon juice, and honey. Split the vanilla bean down its length using a paring knife and scrape out the seeds. Add the seeds and the pod to the saucepan.

  2. Cook on medium heat for about 7 minutes. Add the strawberries and cook for another 10 minutes or until the rhubarb is very tender. (The fruits should release lots of water - it's perfectly normal- this juice is perfect to make chia pudding)

  3. Remove from the heat. Add 3 tablespoons chia seeds and mix well. Transfer to a container, cover with a lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

  4. When ready to eat, layer in a glass 1/4 of chia pudding, 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt and 1 to 2 tablespoons of granola. Top with fresh strawberries and serve immediately. 

  5. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make three other servings (if you are not planning to eat the other servings straight away, assemble only at the last minute).

Recipe Notes

To make this breakfast portable and bring it to work with you, layer the chia pudding with greek yogurt in a jar with a lid, pack the granola in a separate container and add it when you're ready to eat!
