Too often, when I go into the kitchen, I see the stem of the broccoli in the garbage can. Of course the head of the broccoli or the floret should be separated into little florets like this, but this, in my opinion, is the best part of the broccoli providing that you peel it. And there is a thick, heavy peel. Then you go on the outside. [BLANK_AUDIO] Here it is. And you can do it in a different way. Now jullienne or fluted, but certainly that part here is the best part of the broccoli. It comes like this. Same thing on the cauliflower. [NOISE] And you can see, delicious, tender. Much more tender than that. For never [UNKNOWN] out the stem of your broccoli.
