When you make broccoli do you throw away the stems? Yeah I always did too unless I had soup planned in the next couple of days, I would keep them in that case to slice and throw some into the soup but mostly then got tossed. Well here are a few ways to use them instead of tossing them. I think now that I have seen these recipes I won’t ever throw away the steams. It seems like a waste anyway to go to the store and buy the broccoli and then bring it home and automatically throw away half of it.
Pure Wow did a round-up and shares eight different recipes for using those broccoli stems. They all look delicious, especially this Broccoli stems with garlic and anchovies by Food 52. I think I would leave out the anchovies but the broccoli and garlic sounds really yummy. Sure beats throwing away perfectly good food that I paid good money for.
