Description

A creative way to use those leftover broccoli stems—sliced, panko battered and baked to a tender crisp!

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Broccoli Stem
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Milk
  • 1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

Preparation

I’m a big fan of broccoli chips because they are easy and delicious, but mostly because they’re a clever way to make use of the broccoli stem that so many of us toss in the trash. A while back, I got tired of wasting the stems and started slicing them up and tossing them into my stir fry recipes. Now, I’ve discovered an even more enjoyable way to eat those veggies. Heck, kids might even like these too!

Here’s how you make them:

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Slice the broccoli stem into coins about a quarter inch thick and set aside.

Make an eggwash by whisking together the egg and milk in a small bowl.

In a separate, shallow bowl, mix the panko, salt, onion powder and cayenne.

Dip the broccoli coins (one by one) into the eggwash and then into the panko until well-coated. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes until the panko is toasted brown.

The coins will be tender inside and crispy outside. These make a perfect snack or appetizer and can be dipped in a variety of dipping sauces (like spicy mayo!). Enjoy!

I’ve tried zucchini fries done the same way. These are tempting, especially with the increased price of broccoli lately!

This looks fabulous! What a great way to use a normally discarded part of the veggie!
