Because I buy organic broccoli, sometimes it comes with a huge stem and a small amount of florets. You see, you can’t pick and choose from ‘pretty’ produce when it comes to organic.
I never use to eat the broccoli stem. That’s until a few years ago when I realised it was just like any other green vegetable. Chop off the ‘woody’ outer layer and it can be steamed or stir fried with the broccoli florets.
It’s such a waste of good food and money if you throw the stem in the bin. Give some of these quick and tasty ideas for eating the stem a try next time you buy broccoli.
