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)
Broccoli stems shredded with carrot makes a great foundation for Broccoli Slaw.They charge for this in the markets! (06/09/2006)
Just curious -- why do you have to cut an "x" in the end? (06/12/2006)
I peel the outside of the broccoli stalks with a vegetable peeler and slice the insides up to use in stir-fry. (07/09/2007)
