alaches/Halachas/Anoda cristata recipes

Hi All,
I bought some of this green at a farmers market at the SE corner of Morning Side Park in NYC. The vendor told me about a soup made with it, recipe roughly thus:

saute green beans and onions 10-15 min.
Add alaches and zuccini, cook 10-15 min

I can see a variety of ways to interpret this, but could not find anything online, for any of the above spellings.

Anyone cooked with this green and had results worth sharing?

  1. Try Hilachas in place of Halachas. It's kinda like pulled pork but made with beef.

    1. re: todao

      That does sound like a tasty dish, but I am specifically interested in this green/herb/weed I have in my fridge and how to get the most out of it.

      the recipes I found for Hilachas had no greens like halachas in them.
