Roasted fruit is one of those under rated dishes. In the past, I’ve roasted stone fruit and I have loved it.  Rhubarb is no different. What makes this dish so fantastic is that my kids actually ate it.  And not only did they eat it, they liked it.  I made these greek yogurt parfaits as an afterschool snack, added some of my homemade granola and my kids and their friends were raving.

Thank you French Friday’s with Dorie for forcing me create something that I wouldn’t normally be inspired to make.  This was easier than easy. It’s as simple as preheating your oven, slicing and dicing your rhubarb, sprinkling with sugar ( I sprinkled with sucanat), adding some orange zest and roasting for 15 minutes.  That’s it!  Serve this on ice cream, mixed into a poptart crust, on your oatmeal, or straight out of the jar.

Next week is the last week of school for my kids.  I was planning on making nutella poptarts on a stick as end of the year gifts.  Instead, I am going to create roasted rhubarb poptarts sprinkled with a bit of turbinado sugar!!  I may have to make extra, freeze them unbaked and save them for a rainy day.
