Rhubarb Vanilla Compote

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by DDW7976

A quick and easy 15 minute dessert that can be rolled in crepes or used as a topping for ice cream. I served in homemade crepes and sprinkled with powdered sugar. From Eating Well magazine 6/2008

Easy, tasted good. I liked the scent of cinnamon while it was cooking. I couldn't really detect its flavor, or the vanilla, when we ate this. Still, a good use of rhubarb, and I will use it again.
