Taming Tough Broccoli Stalks

Martha Stewart Living, September 2003

Don't let their tough exterior fool you: Broccoli stems have tender hearts. Just remove the outer layer with a vegetable peeler, slice the stems, and steam or saute them as you would the florets. Use in soups, side dishes, and salads -- here, we've tossed them with white beans and an oil-and-lemon dressing.
