Broccoli Stem Slaw

Veronica's Healthy Living
Don’t throw away those broccoli stems!  There are many uses for them, and they are sweet, tender and contain many of the the same nutrients as the broccoli floret, See
The tough, outside stem should be trimmed, which leaves the tender, crunchy inside that is perfect to cut into strips for crudités’, chopped for stir fries and sliced into thin strips for slaw, salads and soups.
For today’s recipe, we will used the food processor to cut the stems and broccoli leaves into small pieces.  However, you may slice the stems thinly to serve as a Cole slaw or in a salad, if so desired.
