Use those broccoli stalks in this dish instead of throwing them away. This makes a delicious side, a hearty snack, or a light meal.  

Ingredients

  • 3 broccoli stalks
  • 1/4 cup milk, 1%
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, low-fat shredded

2. Scrub potatoes. Prick the skin with a fork in several places.
3. Baked at 350°F for 30-60 minutes, until soft, depending on size.
