ISO Broccoli

What's the best way to cut up broccoli stalks? I don't want to waste it, but after taking off the rind i don't know of a way to make it look presentable. Ideas?

Very versatile part of one of my favorite vegetables. After removing the tough outer skin, I just cut it whatever way is best for how I'm going to use it - cubed, diced, or cut into batons or julienned - & added in with the florets, or used alone in soups or mixed vegetable dishes, stirfries, fried rice, etc. If julienned finely enough or grated, they're also a great addition raw in cole slaws. In fact, I frequently keep a bag of "Broccoli Slaw" on hand in the fridge to toss into stirfries, etc. Most supermarkets carry it now & it's very handy to have on hand, consisting of very finely julienned broccoli stems, carrots, & usually a touch of red cabbage.

I hated it growing up, but then my Mom almost ruined veggies for me. Who knew they didn't always come in cans!?

My children love it too!

After peeling, I use a mandolin to make shoestrings.
