5 Ways to Use Broccoli Stalks
Here are 5 of our favourite ways to use broccoli stalks that are delicious and combat food waste:
1. Elevate Your Salads
Grate the stalks on a cheese grater or food processor and add them to your next batch of slaw. They'll add a slightly bitter / peppery crunch that pairs well with sweet and tangy dressings.

2. No Fish, Just Chips

Peel and slice the stalks into thin coins, then roast them in the oven with a dash of oil and your favourite seasoning. They make a crunchy and satisfying snack, much like kale chips.

3. Snack It Up
Use a vegetable peeler to shave the stalks into long, thin ribbons. Toss them with a little bit of oil and salt, then roast them in the oven until they're crispy. They make a tasty and healthy alternative to potato chips.

4. Blend It Like Beckham

Blend the stalks into smoothies or puree them into dips and spreads. Just be aware that they'll add a slightly peppery / bitter flavour, so you may want to balance it out with sweeter ingredients like fruit or honey.

5. Add Some Crunch
Chop the stalks into small pieces and add them to soups, stews, and stir-fries. They'll take slightly longer to cook than the florets, so add them in a min or two before.
