Cast-Off Cooking: Broccoli Stems

Broccoli is in season so it’s a great time to consider eating the stems too. Freshly harvested broccoli doesn’t suffer from the cracks and dryness which plague grocery store broccoli, making it easy to enjoy more of it. Admittedly, stems are nothing to get excited about visually. In fact, they pale in comparison to broccoli’s showy, emerald-green florets just begging to be lopped off and lightly steamed for a quick side dish.
