1 bunch crown daisy
1 onion
1 cup bulgur
2 cups olive oil
3 cups water
1 lemon
Red pepper, black pepper, and salt, to taste

Wash the crown daisy and boil it in hot water for about half an hour, or until thoroughly softened. Drain the leaves and chop with a sharp knife. Setting that aside, melt butter in a pan. Add olive oil, minced onions, and minced garlic. Once the onion has softened, add the crown daisy, and sauté it for 5-10 minutes. Add salt, black pepper, and red pepper, then serve. If desired, eggs can be added.
