Rhubarb Tart

It’s rhubarb season again and I love to find new ways of cooking it. I’ve done compotes, crumbles and cakes with I but never tried them in a tart. I looked at a few recipes on the net but couldn’t find one that I liked so I did a mix of a few recipes here and there and the result was a delicious almond and rhubarb tart.

  1. Wash and cut the rhubarb in 3cm (2 inches) chunks and place in a sieve sitting on a bowl. Sprinkle with the 150g sugar and let it macerate for 2 hours so the water drains out.

  3. Butter and flour a 23cm tart tin. Roll the pastry and place in the tin, cutting out the excess pastry around the rim.
  4. Preheat the oven at 180C
  5. Drain the rhubarb (reserve the juice.) and place in a fry pan and sauté on high heat for a few minutes until just softened.
  6. Tip them out at the bottom of the tart. RhubarbTart_001
