  • 4 cups rhubarb, sliced
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup (For less sweet compote, use 2/3rds of a cup)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 3 teaspoons beetroot powder (optional)


  • Put the rhubarb, maple syrup, cardamom, and beetroot powder (if using) in a sauce pan. Bring it to a boil, stirring occasionally. 
  • Turn the heat down to a simmer and let it cook for about 12 minutes, stirring occasionally until the rhubarb has broken down. 



This will keep in the fridge for a few days.
