One morning, a vegetable vendor came knocking at our gate and displaying his decent, robust broccoli. Our neighbor was inspecting them but said "The inedible part is even bigger than the florets!"
Even in the grocery I hear people comment about the useless stalks being too big. But what most people are unaware of is that the stalks are as edible as the florets. In fact they pack a lot of flavor on a Leek and Broccoli Soup. Or just simply stir fry it with some oyster sauce and sprinkled with toasted garlic.
Just make sure that you peel the tough outer skin with a peeler and chop for the soup or slice thinly for stir fries. Trust me. The stalks will make the money you are paying for broccoli worthwhile.
Up next, Leek Broccoli Soup.
