Soy Pannacotta with Rhubarb Ginger Compote

 Soy Pannacotta with Rhubarb Ginger Compote

I love soy milk and I love rhubarb, hence the combination of the two : Soy Pannacotta with Rhubarb ginger compote
My bad... for not putting up this post last week. 
I was busy... taking my own sweet time with spring cleaning...  with few tens of glass doors and windows to clean... and at the rate I am going... looks like it will be Summer Cleaning too.

Spring Cleaning is the MAIN reason... but the underlying reason ~ I was distracted by Instagram ... shhhh dont tell H  ... 

What comes to mind when I mentioned the word 'Spring and Summer'?
Perhaps.... Rhubarb is one of them?

 Soy Pannacotta

I have been experimenting and cooking rhubarb ever since I could get rhubarb in the market at a reasonable price. Tried baking Rhubarb Streusel Cake... I received 3 thumbs down . Had it with Vanilla french Yoghurt... another 3 thumbs down.
Thought I'd give rhubarb another go... this time round, I marry the few ingredients I love ~ rhubarb (of course), ginger and soy milk...the vote was 2:2 .

Hence Soybean Panncotta with Rhubarb compote was 'born' in my kitchen...

I loved the smoothness of Pannacotta with a hint of ginger plus some burst of sweet/sour and gingery taste of Rhubarb compote. H was OK with it .. his comments was "could do with extra sugar"
And the kids... hmmm still 2 thumbs down 

 Rhubarb compote

Have a blessed week everyone
