Chef Tips

Broccoli stems are tender at heart. Peel off the hard outer skin and then chop, grate, slice or dice them just as you would carrots. Add them to soups, stir-frys, veggie stews whatever’s your fancy. If you want to cook them with the florets, whichever cooking method you choose, cook the stems on their own first for 3-5 minutes or until just tender, before adding the quicker cooking florets.
