Has anyone ever eaten purslane?

I recently learned, in my old age, that purslane (Portulaca oleracea) contains a high amount of omega-3 fatty acid, a compound touted to be a good cholesterol reducer. This feature is not common in most plant matter.

If you've used purslane in your culinary endeavors, what kind of dish did you prepare?

Purslane is considered a weed by many people, and it propagates profusely.
