This rhubarb sauce recipe is simple to make, with just 3 ingredients and little water. It’s technically a rhubarb compote, meaning a chunky fruit sauce, but whatever you choose to call it, we know you’ll want to eat lots and lots of it. The recipe makes about 1 1/4 cups. Feel free to double it to make more!

Recipe Notes

Vegetarian/Gluten Free: This is vegetarian, gluten free and vegan too!
