Using Broccoli Stems

You don't have to throw away those broccoli stems. They can be cooked with broccoli flowers if you cut them into bite size pieces and cut an "x" in each end.

I peel them and cut them into sticks. The kids love them. They are great for dipping into ranch or onion dip. (06/09/2006)

A second in the food processor to shred them (raw) works great! I can mix them in my meatloaf or toss them in my salads or fritattas. Mmm! (06/09/2006)
