Long Lost Broccoli Stems
Saving the Stems
Most people eat the florets and toss the stalks in the trash. We will admit they can look a bit scary and inedible, but underneath a layer or two of peel is a delicious broccoli stem!
Once you remove the florets use a vegetable peeler to remove
some of the fibrous outside layers. This step is very easy!
Spiralize, slice or grate
Now you can slice and use in a stir fry, add to a stock and make
a soup, cut into matchsticks or grate for a broccoli salad or even
turn into noodles with a spiralizer. The possibilities are endless.
Raw Broccoli Apple Salad
with Sunflower Date Sauce
1 broccoli stalk, peeled 1/4 cup water
1 small apple, sliced 3 pitted dates
1/4 cup soaked sunflower seeds*
1. Spiralize the broccoli stems to make noodles, cut into matchsticks or grate.
2. Add the broccoli to a bowl with the apples.
3. Put the sunflower seeds, water and dates in the food processor and blend until smooth but still textured.
