Default Baked Rhubarb

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 pound rhubarb, cut in 1-inch pieces, about 3 cups
Preparation:
In a saucepan combine sugar and water, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Place rhubarb in a baking dish; pour syrup over rhubarb (it is not necessary to cover fruit with water since rhubarb has so much water). Cover dish and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes, until fruit is bubbly, stirring several times.

  • A few drops red food coloring
  • 4 c. rhubarb, peeled and diced
  • 1 (3 oz.) pkg. strawberry Jello, dry
Boil 5 minutes. Peel and dice the rhubarb. Put in the stevia and water. Let come to a boil (I like my rhubarb cooked soft). Then add one 3 ounce package dry Jello right out of the box. Stir and let cool and set.

Default Baked Vanilla Rhubarb

This is so easy it's barely a recipe. My favorite kind of cooking - prepare everything, dump it into the oven, set the timer, and come back when it beeps. Cooking things in packages is always fun too. Opening the packet almost feels like unwrapping a present.
  • 6-8 cups of cut-up rhubarb (5-6 stalks). Be sure to cut off any leaf parts.
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups sugar
  • 1 vanilla pod (optional)
  • Preheat the oven to 200C / 400F.
Toss together the sugar and rhubarb. Put a double layer of aluminum foil on a baking dish, and put the rhubarb in a pile in the middle. If you're using a vanilla pod, place it in the middle of the rhubarb. Seal up the foil securely so you have a pouch. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, until the rhubarb is tender. Chill before serving (though frankly it's good at any temperature).

If you want the rhubarb to disintegrate even more, bake for about 10 minutes longer.

If you want it to be more acidic, omit the vanilla and add the juice of half a lemon

Default Sauted Spinace

  • 2 large bunches of spinach, about 1 lb
  • Olive oil, extra virgin
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • Salt to taste
1 Cut off the thick stems of the spinach and discard. Clean the spinach by filling up your sink with water and soaking the spinach to loosen any sand or dirt. Drain the spinach and then repeat soaking and draining. Put the spinach in a salad spinner to remove any excess moisture.

2 Heat 2 Tbsp olive oil in a large skillet on medium high heat. Add the garlic and saut for about 1 minute, until the garlic is just beginning to brown.

3 Add the spinach to the pan, packing it down a bit if you need to with your hand. Use a couple spatulas to lift the spinach and turn it over in the pan so that you coat more of it with the olive oil and garlic. Do this a couple of times. Cover the pan and cook for 1 minute. Uncover and turn the spinach over again. Cover the pan and cook for an additional minute.

4 After 2 minutes of covered cooking the spinach should be completely wilted. Remove from heat. Drain any excess moisture from the pan. Add a little more olive oil, sprinkle with salt to taste. Serve immediately.

Default Oven-Roasted Broccoli

Take 4 to 5 pounds of broccoli (I just got two large bunches), cut into florets (but relatively big ones.) Here's the key that she doesn't mention in the recipe: dry them THOROUGHLY. That is, if you wash them.

Now, it's easy. Put the broccoli on a cookie sheet. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. (She says 5 Tbs olive oil, 1 1/2 tsps kosher salt, 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper, but I just eyeballed it.) Now add 4 garlic cloves that are peeled and sliced and toss them in too.

Roast in the oven 20 to 25 minutes, until "crisp-tender and the tips of some of the florets are browned."

I shook the pan around a bit as it went, but not sure that's necessary.

When it's done, take it out of the oven--and here's where it gets really good--zest a lemon over the broccoli, squeeze the lemon juice over the broccoli, and add 1.5 Tbs more olive oil.
