Broccoli Slaw

I've seen the bags of broccoli slaw at the store and I thought I'd try making some of my own. I purchased a bunch of fresh broccoli when it was a great price and I wanted to freeze it to use later. After washing and trimming it all up, I was left with all the stalks. Because being provident is in my blood, I didn't want to just throw all the stalks away. That's when I thought about turning them into broccoli slaw.

First I shredded a few carrots in the food processor. And then I added all the broccoli stalks.

I ended up with this colorful mix. I turned some of it into coleslaw and froze the rest to use in wontons another night. Both dishes were delicious. I also think it would work great to add to stir-fry or fried rice. It would also make a yummy broccoli cheese soup. I won't be throwing broccoli stalks away any longer!
