We got some stir fry greens from our CSA this week and we're not really sure what to put them in or how to prepare them.

Thought I'd see if anyone had ideas for simple recipes involving stir-fry greens.

I don't know exactly what stir-fry greens are, but I'm assuming mustard greens, kale, Swiss chard, pak choi, etc.--greens that will hold up to, well, stirfrying. This is what I would do:

-stir fry, obviously--chop them up and add them near the end.

-chop small and add to soup

-saute (stems first, then leaves, if the stems are very thick) with garlic and green onions and eat as a side dish

-steam/boil (depending on thickness) and mix with honey/sugar, sesame oil, crushed garlic, green onions, soy sauce, and sesame seeds for a marinated salad

-carmelize onions and cook lentils separately, then add the lentils to the onion pan and add greens until softened and everything's well mixed.
