Using Broccoli Stems

How many of us have cooked broccoli florets and simply thrown away the stems? Instead, slice those stems in a food processor and store in the refrigerator and/or freeze to use in salads or soups and casseroles!

Using Broccoli Stems

Great in all soups especially cream of broccoli, stir fry, for crunchiness, to serve with dips and many other things! I can't believe anyone would be crazy enough to actually throw them away! (07/21/2009)

Using Broccoli Stems

The stems are my favorite part of the broccoli. Peel off the outer woody layer and they are great steamed or raw. Years ago, I told a friend about this and she later said that she and her son had started eating the stems raw while the rest of the broccoli was cooking. (07/22/2009)

Using Broccoli Stems

Use the stems for a crunchy bit in your broccoli dishes, also use the leaves and stems in your greens, very, very healthy for you. You can peel the stems for a nice stick in your raw crudites. If chopped small, they will cook just fine. (07/22/2009)

Using Broccoli Stems

One more way, chop fine for crunch in egg or chicken salad. I love them peeled and sliced and cooked with the florets, actually prefer to the florets, but if I don't have any celery I find that broccoli stems or even cauliflower chopped fine work just as well in salads. (07/22/2009)
