What to do with cauliflower leaves?

I always cut the leaves of cauliflowers, eating only the florets and composting the remaining leaves.

I have heard that they are not only edible, but in fact quite tasty and nutritious.

Does any one have any experience of using the leaves in any cuisine?

Though far from my favorite, they can be cooked/treated, just like Kale, Mustard, or Collard Greens.

I only like the young ones...I treat them as any other green (kale, swiss chard, etc.). I imagine you could substitute them for kale in a kale soup...
