2 tablespoons corn oil

Boil 2 cups of water and add the dandelion leaves. Add ¼ teaspoon of soda (helps to keep the green color). Let it sit for 20 minutes.

Drain the dandelion leaves and squeeze them by hand. Try to keep some water in them.

In a pan, cook the dandelion leaves with half of the onions on low heat. Mix well with a spatula for 5 to 10 minutes. Add the lemon juice.
