Stewed rabbit with spring vegetables

What could be tastier than a stewed rabbit with vegetables? The dish is incredibly delicate, aromatic and most of all tasty. People often use the rabbit only for roasting or with sirloin sauce, so I mention another treatment in which the properties of meat are better applied. This recipe is suitable for people who are dry, sinewy, irritable, bitter from emptiness. For people, without problems, we can add green pepper and a little white wine.

We need:

portions of rabbit meat with bone,
green pepper,
white wine,
rice semolina,
vegetables of your choice – fresh spinach,
young peas,
young carrots


In a deeper pot, quickly fry the onion, roughly sliced, add portions of meat, salt, cover and simmer in our own juice almost until soft. When the liquid boils, cover with a little boiling water. (If our health allows it, we can add green pepper, white wine until the end of cooking.) We clean the selected vegetables and add them to the meat at the end. Concentrate the juice from the meat with semolina mixed in cold water and cook. As a side dish, we choose from variants – rice, spelt, potatoes mixed with boiled egg and herbs, lettuce with shoots.
