They're great both cooked and raw. For salads, I snip them with scissors into sections of an inch or two, stems, leaves, flowers and all. They are also great lightly sauteed with garlic and a dash of soy sauce or white shoyu. Because the stems can get chewy when cooked, chop them into smaller sections first.

I always starry in with some garlic and salt.

stupid autocorrect...that should be "stir fry".

If they have a sturdy stems then take the leaves off, chop and stir fry the stems and add the leaves just for a few min at the end. Great to add a splash of soy sauce and toasted sesame oil and garlic

I don't know if these are the best, but two ways I like to use them are in a (breakfast) green smoothie and a spring herb salad.
