Rabbit Stew Recipe

Healthy Rabbit Stew Recipe

Healthy and Light

A Healthy Living RecipeThis great Rabbit Stew Recipe qualifies for our healthy  living seal of approval. Fresh  skinless Rabbit meat (use organic if you
can) vegetables and health giving Spices.

Here's a great Mediterranean Rabbit Stew Recipe, with pictures, that we developed to take advantage of the light and tasty meat, combined with fresh, seasonal vegetables and tasty Mediterranean herbs and spices.
How do we know the vegetables are seasonal?
Easy, we only buy what's on sale in our local market that day.
Rabbit is an ideal alternative to chicken, specially here by the Mediterranean where it is cheap and freely available.
The meat is tender, juicy and just a little stronger in flavour than chicken,  in fact, if you don't like the idea of cooking rabbit - a good, free range chicken will do just as well.
Either way, just follow the step-by-step instructions below for a wonderful, healthy and easy evening meal or lunch.
The ingredients will serve two as a hearty meal or four as a light
supper, with a crunchy, fluffy baked potato.


  • One medium Rabbit - about 1.25 kilo/2-1/2 lb. Cut into eight roughly equal pieces
  • One medium onion - chopped
  • Four clove of garlic - chopped
  • Two medium carrots sliced (see pics)
