500g lambsquarters
1 onion
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp chili pepper
1 tsp salt

Wash the lambsquarters, chop them and boil them in hot water for 5-10 minutes. Remove it from the water, chop it with a sharp knife, strain it, and set it aside. Chop the onion and sauté it in the butter and olive oil. Once the onions have softened, add the lambsquarters. Once the lambsquarters are tender, mix in salt, black pepper, and chili pepper. Turn off the heat, and let the dish cool slightly. This dish is ideally served with garlic yogurt.  
If desired, this dish can also be served with eggs.
