Although the humble rhubarb is technically a vegetable, this herbacious perennial is routinely promoted to fruit status and served as a dessert.

The perfect runner’s pudding, rhubarb is rich in calcium, which is essential for healthy bones, Lutein which looks after your skin after routinely exposing it to the elements, and vitamin K, which helps form blood clots should you suffer an injury.

What better excuse do you need to order extra dessert?
