Using Broccoli Stems

Waste of any kind is unacceptable in our home, but the family refused to eat broccoli stems no matter how I cut them. Now I clean and dice those stems, and put them into a zip lock bag in the freezer. When that bag is full, I make one of the families favorite soups - cream of broccoli. There are no more arguments or waste at the kitchen table when this vegetable is served.

At our house, we shred the stems and use them in stir fry and cole slaw.
