“Don't throw away the broccoli stems they are delicious as a little finger food! You can these eat them by themselves or dip them in something. We call them 'stars' because sometimes they look like when you cut them and the stem is jagged."


  • 2 heads broccoli
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt


Serves: 4-6


Preheat oven to 375°F.

Cut the stems away from the broccoli and peel the outside of them stem (just like you would a carrot). Slice the stems into “coins” so they are about a nickel thick (you can use a 1.5mm blade on mandolin too).

Toss broccoli with a couple tablespoons olive oil (they should all be coated with the olive oil). Layer singly on a cookie sheet and sprinkle with salt.

Bake for 20 minutes, tossing a couple times before they are done. They will be a little crispy and very good.  Lastly, take out and enjoy.
