I'm sharing as it struck me by its taste, rather.
I found it strongly flavorful in a pleasant way.

Personally, I go for KISS: water-sauted it, then garnished with raw butter off-flame. Made a great breakfast with some beef on the side.

Tearing the leaves off was time-consuming.

It is, eh... nettlesome, so, gloves and all that till it's disarmed.

Your take?
