Health Tips - Broccoli Stem Rounds

Broccoli Stem Rounds

There are lots of vitamins (A, C and K etc.), minerals and other health benefits, yet almost no calories and essentially no fat.  This is perfect for a hot day as it replaces potassium and sodium. 


1 head of organic broccoli with stems intact
2 lemons
sea salt


  • Cut the stems away from the tops.
  • Using a paring or cutting knife, cut away the tough outer bark of the stems.
  • Cut the stems into small rounds as thick as you like and put these in a bowl.
  • Squeeze fresh lemon juice of 1 or more lemons, pouring this over the broccoli rounds.
  • Salt the rounds as you like and enjoy right away!
