Ingredients for Instant Rhubarb Fool (without the custard) :
- 3 sticks of rhubarb
- 2 tblsp of sugar
- 2 tblsp mascarpone
- 4 tblsp Greek yoghurt
A handful of other red fruit to colour and decorate – eg redcurrants, blackcurrants, strawberries, raspberries
Method for Instant Rhubarb Fool (without the custard):
- Wash and chop the rhubarb sticks into inch long bits and put in a pan with an inch of water. Add the sugar. Cook for a few minutes until mushy and leave to cool.
- Meantime put into a jug the mascarpone and yoghurt and if you wish a handful any other red fruit to colour the fool (otherwise it comes out vanilla). Frozen berries will work fine and make a refreshing summer pudding. Add the cooled rhubarb and mix either by hand or with hand mixer.
- Taste and add sugar/fruit until it is the right colour and sweetness for your taste.
- Pour into glass bowls and leave to set in the fridge for half an hour. Decorate with more fruit as desired before serving.
