In our house we eat lots of broccoli. When we aren't growing it, we're buying it at the grocery store. My only problem is the stalks. NOBODY likes the stalks so those usually get thrown in the compost bin. But here's a new idea for you.
You know those expensive bags of broccoli slaw you can get at the grocery store? Why not make your own. Now when I'm using broccoli I take the stems and run them through my food processor to make my own homemade slaw. Then I use it in whatever recipe calls for store bought broccoli slaw and I've essentially made an extra meal out of something that I would have just thrown away.
It can be used in Teriyaki Pasta , Homemade Broccoli Slaw or even Mu Shu Chicken.
So think twice before you throw those stems away.
