You can also add them to a ramen style Japanese noodle soup. Let me add that I love dandelion greens.

I adore dandelion greens too -- I try to source small ones, which I find are the most tender and not too bitter. This is one of my favorite soups using dandelion leaves: If you want to try a risotto, gingerroot's Ricotta Risotto with Dandelion Greens and Orange is delicious And finally aargersi's dandelion greens salad, which is served with a poached egg, is amazing.

Put them in your favorite pasta fagioli recipe. I take out some of the soup and puree it when I have time, before cooking the pasta in the soup. Bitter greens lighten the dish.

I've always been a fan of braising dandelion greens. I usually saute onions and garlic with a pinch of chili flakes. After they are nice and soft, I throw in the greens just to wilt. I cover the greens in chicken stock and put the pan in a 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Delicious, especially the broth.
