I'm always looking for something healthy to do with rhubarb; something that doesn't involve a ton of sugar. On Dr. Oz's "Forks over Knives" episode, Rick E. had some kind of rhubarb cookies or something. Anyone know what was in them? Any other ideas for using rhubarb?

I believe that was a Rhubarb crumble. Sort a coffee cake. Ihaven't checked his book for recipe. Will later. I would think you could use some apple juice for sweetener and maybe a few dates.

I was wondering the same thing, since I just saw frozen rhubarb at the discount grocery where I shop, and couldn't imagine what I could make with it that wouldn't have sugar in it. Dr. Oz website has a recipe section but when I checked last night the rhubarb recipe wasn't posted yet.

I bet it would taste good in this cobbler recipe (Strawberry-Rhubarb Cobbler)! It wouldn't be sugar-free, but it's probably about as healthy as you're going to get. I've made a Strawberry-rhubarb smoothie before, but I don't remember the exact recipe. I believe I sweetened it with dates.

I make cobbler with rhubarb. Basically the same topping recipe as Mary's, with nutmeg. I love nutmeg in rhubarb dishes. I usually make it with JUST rhubarb because I'm a purist, but mixing with strawberries or really any berry would make it sweeter.

My father has an extensive vegetable garden and grows rhubarb even though he, or my mother don't use it. I decided to try to make something with it and came up with the following recipe.
Stewed rhubarb and apple
-2 sticks of rhubarb
-3 or 4 soaked dates or prunes.
Chop up apple into small pieces and cook for about 10 minutes. Break the rhubarb sticks into small bits and in the process remove the stringy fibrous strings from the stem. Cook all until until soft and add the soaked dates (or prunes) as sweetener. Add cinnamon. At the end of the process I use a potato masher to break up any bigger chucks.
This lasts in the fridge for a week or so. The more apples you add the sweeter the mixture will be.
