Stewed rabbit with artichokes and potatoes. As you may have guessed, the rabbit is one of the meats that I use most often: white meat, very lean, economy, rather neutral in flavor and so very versatile in the kitchen. I practice preparing it in different way: Today I did it in damp, with potatoes and artichokes, blended with white wine and combined with the pungent flavor of fresh onions. Prepares fast, don't expect a long cooking and is very tasty. A great dish, Since the meat is, There are vegetable fibers and carbohydrates.

Cut them in half and then into quarters and saute for 5 minutes in a pan with butter or oil. Must remain crunchy. Season with salt, pepper and set aside.
