1. Broccoli size
- heads about 20 - 22cm / 8-9" wide. Sounds like alot, but the broccoli shrinks while baking.
2. Broccoli stem
- the thick stem that most people just discard actually has terrific flavour, just like the small stem on each floret. Just peel the outer layer - vegetable peeler or stand it upright and use your knife - then chop and use in this recipe or another recipe. I stockpile things like this and end up using it in a Fridge Forage recipe
that I do every week! Stir fries (cut into batons), finely dice and use in soups, fried rice, casseroles or even hide them in things like pasta sauces.
