I love broccoli stems! They taste good and make it easier to stretch a 
budget. Just wash them and take a sharp knife and peel down the tough 
sides after trimming off the extra leaves and bumps. You can use a veggie 
peeler, but sometimes they're still a little tough that way. After 
they're peeled, cut them into matchsticks and steam, stir fry, whatever. 
Yum! You can also cut them into disks and add to soup or whatever.
