  1. Lorna.. You are a woman after my own heart.. I love Broccoli soup and often make soup from scratch.. Have you made Brocolli stalk soup? With us growing our own broccoli we have the long stems too.. So long as you cut the woody parts out, They are just as nutritious and tasty as the broccoli.. Loved your recipe.. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Sue. Yes, I do use the stems. I just peel the outer skin off. I am sure that you have learned to use ever bit of the plant for something. This recipe can also be used as a dip for pita bread, etc.

      1. My grandmother taught me that. When you take so much time and effort into growing something, it’s great when you can find more ways to use them, even by composting.
