Broccoli and cauliflower stalks

Do you eat the stalks off both of these vegetables? I only ask as I had a conversation a while back with a lady who was lamenting the long stalk on her broccoli as it was something she paid for but would have to throw away.

I asked why she did not eat it and she said, are you supposed to? Huh, yes of course I said if not with the florette then slice or julienne  and pop in stir frys or soups. I wonder if she broadened her horizons and ate them. 

I guess it’s what we grow up with. So my question to you is do you eat your stalks?

    No I find they seem tough. I eat the thin ones attached directly to the florets but not the thick main ones,

    1. Fair enough. Just curious Jennifer do you steam or boil your broccoli?

        I steam. Usually just in a microwave bowl for three or four mins.
