Malabar spinach?

My friend just got some malabar spinach from the nursery and now we are wondering how to use it. I though just in a salad, but when eaten raw it has a very slimy quality, like aloe vera.

How do you use it? How do you combat the slime?

Malabar spinach needs to be cooked; not a salad friendly green. Once cooked, the sliminess goes away and it tastes like regular spinach. Quick saute or braise as a side dish or in a soup. Keep in mind, it's a little more "sturdy" than regular spinach, so it takes a little longer to wilt down.
