25 Best Rhubarb Recipes

Here are 25 of the best rhubarb recipes to help you take advantage of spring’s favourite produce. Bake it, cook it, drink it, spread it!

Best Rhubarb Recipes

Hello spring. Finally.

Though it’s still a little chilly where we are (who am I kidding, it’s always chilly where I am lol), we welcome the longer days and the bright sunshine!

Rhubarb is one of the best things about spring. In fact I read several articles calling it “spring’s darling”. How wonderful! Not everyone is familiar with it though.

When I shared my recipe for Strawberry Rhubarb Galette (it has video!), I had to do a little bit of research to make sure I was handling rhubarb right. Check it out and save yourself some google time. Most important thing to remember: don’t eat the leaves!

Anyway, since rhubarb is available for a very short time, thought we’d get a head start and start planning for all the delicious rhubarb dishes we’re going to make this season.

From desserts to drinks to savoury dishes, this collection has a recipe for all your rhubarb cravings. Enjoy!

Best Rhubarb Recipes: Rhubarb Crisps

Crisps are so easy to make and so delicious. It’s no wonder they are a favourite.

As you can see rhubarb is traditionally paired with strawberry but it’s also delicious on its own.

Galettes and Pies

Rhubarb galettes are popular too. Here are some recipes you can try (galettes are “rustic pies” which means they are super easy to make!).

And here are a couple of (mini) pie recipes for you.

You can use rhubarb in other baked goods like scones and muffins as well.

I had no idea you could make so many recipes with Rhubarb! I'm eyeing the Rhubarb Champagne and the Strawberry Rhubarb Coconut Milk Popsicle. Both would be great to try this summer.

I have never tried Rhubarb before. My mom and grandma used to make all kinds of recipes with it as a kid, but as an adult I've never tried it out! Should, these all look amazing!

You know, I am absolutely obsessed with rhubarb pies and have never tried myself to make anything out of rhubarb. This post has inspired me! So many delicious recipes here!

My wife loves rhubarb, but I've never developed a taste for it. It was 'forced' on my once as a child and I didn't like it, so I guess I've never wanted to try it again!

Oh no! Though I feel the same about okra lol. Hope you change your mind someday, it's really delicious :)
