Broccoli Stems are the best part of the broccoli! If you've never eaten them before, I recommend that you try this recipe at least once . . . who knows? Maybe you'll have a new appreciation for broccoli. My grandma taught me how to make this side dish and it's great as a crunchy snack, or as a cold appetizer to a larger meal.
Here, I use organic broccoli whenever possible trying to select the ones with a wider stem. I also recommend putting the finished appetizer in the refrigerator overnight so the broccoli stems are extra crunchy!
