Are broccoli stems edible?

2

The stems can absolutely be eaten if you treat them right, and are completely delicious—like the florets, but more mild and sweet, almost like kohlrabi.

Yes. Broccoli stems are edible. However the skin around the stem can be quite woody, especially on larger crowns of Broccoli. Peeling away the outer layer reveals a crispy delicious part of the plant, or stems can be cooked and pureed for soup
