Broccoli is one of the top symbols of healthy food, and has been for generations. While many of today’s children are being taught at an early age to appreciate the delicate broccoli florets, there is one part of this healthy green cabbage that many people avoid – the stem.
Well, good news folks. No need to toss broccoli stems. When peeled and treated with love, they are a delicacy. The New York Times has some great, simple recipe ideas for you, including seared broccoli stem coins.
If the broccoli you get in the supermarket is just the florets, check out a local farmer’s market for the the whole package.
How do you enjoy your broccoli?
