Broccoli “Stars”

Don’t throw away the broccoli stems they are delicious as a little finger food! You can these eat them by themselves or dip them in something. They are kind of like a crispy chip and we like to call them “stars” because sometimes they look like a star when you cut them. They are really healthy and a great source of vitamins, such as vitamin a. They are also a great source of fiber. In every broccoli stem there are 3 to 4 grams of fiber in them. The recipe is below for these delicious crispy little star chips!!!
