Never throw away broccoli stalks! Use a peeler or paring knife and remove the outer layer if it’s too tough. Then cook the stalks and florets and make puree. Also, you can add them in seasonings and broth whenever you are cooking a broccoli soup. If you want it to taste rich, add some cream. Broccoli stalks can also be sautéed with olive oil. Again, add a bit of red pepper, garlic and other spices to your taste to make it taste and smell more extravagant.
