Hi...Cynthia here (inserting 2cents),
I grew the Bright Lights, it tasted ok, but IMHO is bland in comparison to
spinach.  But, if you put enough butter/salt/pepper on, it is delicious.  I
cooked some up like my grandma does, parboiled, then sautee in olive oil
with onion and garlic, that wasn't bad at all.  I do not plan to grow
Bright Lights again.  But then again, I don't grow spinach either <bg>.
