I usually use the whole stalk - ends and all, in recipes, as I love the taste of every bit of broccoli. You could add the stems, finely diced, to a cream cheese dip, omelette, cheese/broccoli/ham souffle, or on a pizza.

Broccoli slaw, YUM. Great ideas, Dina. Thank you.

I would probably use them as one of the main ingredients in a stri fry dish; chicken/beef with broccoli in peanut sauce (for the chicken), or szechwan or a spicy terriyaki (for the beef)
