They are my favorite part. Peel the woody exterior off with a veg peeler or knife. Slice into coins or any shape you want. Roast, grill or steam and toss with butter.

Peel them, cut them in coins, Soak them in vinegar, salt, water and red pepper flakes over night or a couple of days. Then drain them a bit and eat garnished with sesame seed oil.

I like to poach them in cream along with slices of fresh horseradish and carrots, them purée and season them and serve as a base for roasted meats or grilled vegetables.

The stems are fabulous for making Broccoli Soup - either cream of or puree. They're actually the best tasting part of the broccoli.

One year in college, I lived in a household of Chinese students. They would cut them up for stir fries and wonder what to do with the leftover florets.
