Sweet & Sour Rhubarb Sauce, Savory Rhubarb Recipe (Vegan, GF)

Turn rhubarb into a delicious tangy sweet & sour sauce to brighten up chicken, beef, or tofu!  This sauce is a great savory rhubarb recipe, serve over rice!

Our CSA box came with a wonderful surprise this week: rhubarb!  So summery and amazing.  I’ve eaten plenty of rhubarb in pies, but have never actually cooked with it for savory dishes. Last weekend we celebrated our 1 year engage-iversary in Killington Vermont and ate at a great spot: The Foundry at Summit Pond.  Its where we celebrated last year right after Brett proposed on the Appalachian Long Trail.  Brett ordered a really yummy dish with a rhubarb sauce and inspired me to find a way to make my own at home.

This Creamy Rhubarb Sweet & Sour Sauce Is:

  • Bright
  • Fresh
  • Tangy
  • Loaded with Flavor
  • Healthy
  • A great savory rhubard recipe!
  • Vegan and gluten free

Savory Rhubarb Recipes For the WIN!

I love a good savory rhubarb recipe.  This is a slight variation on our favorite way to eat tofu: baked and crispy!  The sauce was so amazing and flavorful.  It had such a great tang from the ginger and rhubarb, and every bite really had something new. You can toss this bright and fresh sweet and sour sauce with any protein… or stir it into rice or vegetable stir fries.

What’s In This Savory Rhubarb Sweet & Sour Sauce?

I would highly recommend garnishes, as they added a whole new depth as well.  I ended up using allthe rhubarb for this dish, but just saw some more at the store… so I will have to stock up and freeze some so we can make this again!

How Do I Make This Rhubarb Recipe Savory?

  1. Add all the sauce ingredients into a high speed blender, and blend on high for a few minutes until the sauce has a thick consistency. 
  2. Transfer the sauce to a small pot and let simmer on low for 20 minutes until the tofu is finished.
  3. Serve over your favorite protein and rice/grain.

I poured this amazing sauce over a few other CSA ingredients I got this week – curly kale & scallions .  It was a huge hit, and really nothing like I’ve ever made before.  The sauce packs a bright and vibrant punch…. definitely a healthy take on traditional sweet and sour sauce.  10/10 🙂

    I am not a fan of rhubarb, but always get given it from various growers (can’t say no as it is a principle in our family to never refuse the gift of fruit, vegetables or plants, whether we like them or not, we can always find a use for them!).
    I make the occasional crumble for others.
    So I’m always on the look out for savoury recipes for rhubarb and this covers so many of our taste faves and can be frozen.
    Very many thanks

    This sounds amazing! I’ll have to give this a try once I harvest some more rhubarb! Thanks for sharing 🙂
