Recipes: Goji Berry Greens

Here's a photo from

The following excerpt is taken from

It is likely that Goji berries or their leaves were used as an herb source for early teas; Goji berry fruits or leaves for tea are perhaps the most popular beverage in Tibet and China. Gou qi leaves are usually sold in Chinese grocery market as vegetables. The fresh leaves can be used like other vegetables in soup for instance.
Goji leaf has a wide range of incredible health-care functions. Goji leaf mainly contains lycine, carotene, antiscorbutic vitamin and linoleic acid, glutamic acid, methionine, taurine and over 10 kinds of human needed aminophenols: Ca, Fe, Zn, Se, Vitamin B1, B2, and C.

David says: remove the leaves from the stems.  The stems aren't great to eat, so just use the leaves in soups or salads.  I think I'm going to try making tea with them.
