Simple to make and saves money. Use in stir-fry or a salad, or make it into a slaw.
Okay, I know I called this Broccoli Slaw and it really isn’t slaw. What it is though is the main ingredient in broccoli slaw made at home from what you would normally throw away.
You know when you have fresh broccoli, you don’t want all that stem?
Well don’t just toss that stem. Cut it to a size that will easily fit in your food processor chute.
Put the grater side of your slicing blade up on the food processor and be sure to remove the s-blade from the bottom of the bowl.
Put the top on and remove the plunger. Put cut broccoli stems in chute and process away.
Turn it on and plunge it down; refill as needed.
When grated, if you are not ready to use it, put it in a freezer bag and freeze. If you actually want to make a broccoli slaw (like cole slaw but uses this instead of cabbage), use it right away or refrigerate it, as I don’t think it will be good raw after frozen.
It may be a bit more finely cut than what you purchase in the store, but it works the same. I like to use mine in stir-fry.
This gives you a bit more food from something you already bought–free food, yay!
Until next time, God bless,
