    Carrot Noodle Salad Eggs

    Broccoli stalks are often neglected (or thrown out!), but they’re worthy of a little attention. Spiral slicing or cutting them into matchsticks turns the stems into sturdy, crispy noodles.

    Tips

    • Use broccoli stem peels in soup stock or stir-fries.
    • Use reserved broccoli florets in soups, pastas, stir-fries, and side dishes, or cook and add to this salad for a double broccoli feature.
