Rhubarb Compote with Star Anise and Cinnamon

Very Healthy, Simple, Quick to Make and, of course, Delicious!
Rhubarb is an incredibly versatile vegetable that your body LOVES!!!!
Originated in China and used frequently in Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine, it is a tonic and a blood cleanser, when used in small amounts. It also increases salivary and gastric flow encouraging the healing of stomach ulcers, it is a mild laxative and works miracles for your gallbladder.

Need I say anymore?

You will need:

3 cups of mineral water
Stevia to your taste {use whatever you wish to sweeten this recipe}
3 star anise flowers
2 sticks of cinnamon
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
400 g chopped rhubarb {about 2 cm each piece}

Add the first 5 ingredients to a pan and bring to boil. With the lid off, let it simmer for about 10 minutes with the lid off and add the rhubarb. Bring it to boil, mix once and put the lid back on. Cook in low heat for 3 minutes and turn it off.
Do not mix with a spoon after the first mix, but you can move the pan around so it does not loose its shape.
Let it cool or have it warm with a bit of yoghurt or on its own as a nice breakfast or a desert.
