In a sauce pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add in onions and ginger, cooking for 1-2 minutes.
Next, stir in rhubarb, water, honey, and chilies. Let simmer until rhubarb has broken down and sauce comes together. Add a pinch of salt and taste to adjust seasonings (if you want it sweeter, add more honey or if you want it spicier, add more chiles.)
Prepare noodles according to directions, drain, and set aside.
Shred kale and place in a large bowl. Once noodles and rhubarb are done, toss with kale to slightly wilt.
Top with cilantro and lime wedges to serve. Enjoy!

For the Streusel
-1⁄2 cup flour
-1⁄2 cup sugar
-2 tbsp. packed light brown sugar
-1⁄2 tsp. lemon zest
-1⁄2 tsp. kosher salt
-1⁄4 tsp. almond extract-4 tbsp. unsalted butter, cubed
-1⁄2 cup chopped almonds
For the Muffins
Makes one medium jar of syrup
-4 lg. (~1 lb.) rhubarb stalks, chopped
-2 c. granulated sugar
-2 c. water
-2-3 T. freshly squeezed lime juice, or to taste
-scant 2 t. rosewater, or to taste
-rose petals, optional
Combine the rhubarb and sugar in a medium, thick bottomed saucepan. Stir well, and leave for 45 minutes or so (unheated), stirring now and then.
Add the water and bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Continue to simmer for another 15-20 minutes, until the rhubarb starts to break down.
Carefully strain into a bowl through a cheesecloth-lined strainer. Transfer to a clean saucepan, stir in the lime juice, and bring to a simmer. Let simmer over medium heat for another 15 minutes or until the syrup has reduced quite a bit and thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
Stir in the rosewater a bit at a time, until it is to your liking. Rose water can be quite an assertive flavor, so be judicious to start. It keeps, refrigerated, for a week or so.
Serve over yogurt, in soda water, or drizzled over waffles.
