I love broccoli, so much so that my mom had a problem getting me to eat anything but broccoli for a long while when I was a kid (I know…I am weird).  I would eat it plain, with lemon juice or covered in melted cheese (obviously my favourite way). When it comes to cutting broccoli I have been pretty lazy.  Because the stem is my least favourite part, and I wasn’t quite sure how to prep it, I often threw away perfectly edible portions. No more! Check out these instructions on how to properly prep a whole head of broccoli (link).
