    1 1/2 cups (350 mL) sugar
    1 lemon, juiced

    Reduce to low heat and cook for approximately for 40 minutes, or until all of the rhubarb has softened. Remove the vanilla bean. Remove from the heat.

    Place in a bowl to chill in the fridge.

    Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
