Broccoli florets may get all the glory, but the stalks make nice additions to a dish, too — either thinly sliced and cooked (as in this recipe) or grated and served raw (as in coleslaw). Just be sure to peel them first to remove the tough outer layer.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Meanwhile, trim the broccoli florets from the stalks. Cut the florets into small pieces. Peel the broccoli stalks and cut them crosswise into slices about 1/4 inch thick. Cook the broccoli until almost tender but still crisp, 2 to 4 minutes. Drain; set aside. Add the butter and garlic to the empty pot and place over medium heat. Cook until the garlic is softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the broccoli, salt, and pepper and toss.
