How this easy low-carb appetizer recipe came to be:

The idea for these Bacon Wrapped Broccoli Stems came to me one night as I was preparing broccoli for dinner. I’m not normally a broccoli stem eater, but disposing of them is awfully wasteful. That’s when my lightbulb moment hit!

Don’t be wasteful!

The next time you’re preparing broccoli florets, don’t forget to save your broccoli stalks to make this recipe. You can store the broccoli stalks in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

OR, perhaps the next time you’re preparing Bacon Wrapped Broccoli stems, you can save the broccoli florets in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

As long as you make this recipe it doesn’t really matter in which order you accumulate your broccoli stalks. Just as long as you do.

The easy instructions:

  • Remove the florets from the stalks (reserve them for another use)
  • Remove approximately 2″ from the base of the stalks and discard
  • Carefully shave off some of the outer skin of the stalk (a vegetable peeler may be used for this)
  • Slice the shaved stalks into batons, approximately 3″ – 4″ in length

  • Serve with chilled Smoked Paprika Horseradish Dipping Sauce.
  • Serve hot, or at room temperature.
