Broccoli Stem and Red Pepper Slaw

Broccoli Stem and Red Pepper Slaw

I never throw out broccoli stems. If I don’t use them for pickles or stir-fries, I’ll shred them and use them in a delicious slaw like this one.

  1. Step 1

    Place the shredded broccoli stems in a colander, sprinkle with salt, toss and leave to drain for 15 to 30 minutes. Squeeze out excess water.
  2. Step 2

    In a large bowl, combine the broccoli stems, bell pepper, cilantro, mint, and chile and toss together. In a bowl or measuring cup whisk together the vinegar, mustard, salt to taste, ginger, garlic, sesame oil and grapeseed or sunflower oil. Toss with the shredded vegetable mixture. Serve or refrigerate until ready to serve. Sprinkle each serving with black sesame seeds.
