Ahhh….the sad and lonely stump that gets thrown away after the prized crown is chopped off.
BUT IT’S THE BEST PART OF THE BROCCOLI!
Underneath that tough, fibrous outer layer of the stalk is the most TENDER part of the broccoli. It’s so tender, delicate and sweet that most of the time, I just eat it raw. Right there at the cutting board. I don’t even share. All it takes is 1 minute of your time to remove the outer layer.
