Spring is here which means Rhubarb will be just around the corner, if its not already. This dish or snack works great as a pre-dinner snack, as a light cheese dish before dessert.
It’s super simple, just break some crispy bread, spread it with a soft blue cheese. Then put the rhubarb on top and serve.
Rhubarb with blue cheese on crisp bread
serves 4 as a snack or small appetizer
100g / 3,5oz fresh blue cheese
3 tbsp cream
50g / 1,75oz sugar
50g / 1,75oz water
16 pieces of crisp bread or salty crackers
Peel the rhubarb if the skin is thick, then cut into 16 pieces. Combine sugar and water and bring to a boil in a pan. Add the rhubarb and slowly simmer for a few minutes. Remove and leave to cool.
Mash the cheese with a fork and combine with the cream, this is to make the cheese softer and creamier. Spread the cheese on the crisp bread. Carefully lift out the rhubarb from the liquid and let any excess liquid drip off. Place the rhubarb on top of the cheese and serve.
