    I'm afraid I'll have to agree with Bill. While this didn't seem bland to me (parmesan cheese DOES add a lot of flavour), I couldn't really discern any special broccoli-stem flavour in this. But I like the idea of using the stems grated, and I may try this with a whole bunch of spices and herbs added.

    I peeled the broccoli stems before grating them, and I think that made a big difference. I loved the flavor combination. My dearest husband didn't complain, but didn't eat it all either. However, I think I will be making this recipe each time I have leftover stems - & I am looking forward to adding good cheese next time (finally used up my parm-in-a-can!)

    The recipe seemed to be a great idea, but what I got was a rather bland fiber that tasted like nothing more than cheese and hot pepper flakes. Sort of like eating the white parts of cabbage leaves with spices or parmesan cheese on toast.. I gave it 3 stars only because it did not taste bad, and as a budget stretcher or as filler for a wet salad it works if you need to fill the bowl.

    What a great idea. Tried it, liked it. Willing be using this recipe again. Also thinking of grating the stems and putting in stir-fries. Really tasty. Great money saver as that is the heaviest part of the broccoli.
