Help me identify this green, something that sounds similar to amaranth

rworange | Aug 4, 2008 11:33 AM

I bought this lovely bunch of greens at the farmers market and I thought the vendor said amaranth , but googling seems to turn that up as a grain.

This was mainly green and has some bunches with scarlet leaves. The vendor said it had to be cooked and couldn't be eaten raw. Does this sound familiar to anyone? The leaves were sort of like ... uh ... mint ... but BIG mint leaves maybe three times that size.

I can't make anything with these unless I can look up a recipe. Please help
