Brocolli Stars

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!







Here is our simple way to cook them…


  • 2 bunches of broccoli (so about 4 giant stems)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Grease a cookie sheet
  3. Cut the stems away from the broccoli and peel the outside of them stem (just like you would a carrot)
  4. Slice the stems into “coins” so they are about a nickel thick (you can use a mandoline too)
  5. Toss with a couple tablespoons olive oil (they should all be coated with the olive oil)
  6. Layer singly on a cookie sheet and sprinkle with salt
  7. Toss a couple times before they are done
  8. Bake for about 15-18 minutes. They will be a little crispy and very good
  9. Lastly, take out and enjoy this simple recipe.
