    Comlek - Rabbit Casserole with Onions and Wine Vinegar
    1 rabbit, jointed
    2 tablespoons tomato puree or 4-5 fresh tomatoes, approximately 350 gr., chopped
    2 bay leaves
    4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
    150 ml olive oil
    0.25 teaspoon sugar
    4 cloves garlic, peeled
    300 ml hot water
    small piece cinnamon stick
    salt and black pepper
    4 grains whole allspice
    700 gr. small onions, peeled but left whole
    1 sprig of rosemary
    1 small glass of red wine
    Instructions: The same recipe can be used for hare, with excellent results, by increasing quantities of other ingredients, since hare is much heavier than rabbit. Rabbit or hare should be treated in exactly the same preparatory way, i.e., being soaked in vinegar. (This only applies to wild varieties.) Served with fried potatoes on the side, this is a piquant dish, or if you prefer a milder taste to counterbalance the richness of the rabbit, serve with plain while rice. A green salad is always welcomed as it adds a refreshing note. Rinse the rabbit pieces and put them in a salad bowl with the bay leaves. Sprinkle the vinegar over the pieces and let them marinate for at least 2 hours or preferably in the fridge overnight. Heat half of the olive oil in a saucepan, pat the rabbit pieces dry and fry them in it until they are quite brown on both sides. Take out and put on to a plate.

    When all the rabbit pieces have been fried, put them back into the saucepan along with the garlic cloves, bay leaves, spices, rosemary and the wine. Then add the tomato puree or tomatoes, sugar and the hot water. Season, cover and cook for about 1 hour. In the meantime, heat the remaining olive oil in a frying pan and gently fry the onions. Stir them occasionally, in order to make sure they turn golden all over, for about 15 minutes. Add the contents of the frying pan to the saucepan, and shake it so that the onions spread evenly. Then cover and simmer for a further 15 minutes. Serve with fried potatoes or plain white rice and a green salad.

    1/2 kg. rice
    2 bunches spring onions
    1 1/2 glass olive oil
    4 glasses water
    2 tablespoons pine nuts
    1 bunch dill
    1 bunch parsley
    salt, black pepper and spices
    Place the vine leaves in boiling water in order to remove their salt. Put 1/2 glass olive oil and chopped onions into a pan and saute over moderate heat while stirring with a wooden spoon, add the washed rice and continue to stir. Add water, spice, salt, chopped parsley and dill, black pepper, and pine nuts.
    Pour in 1/2 glass olive oil and cook gently while still stirring. Put aside to cool. Cut off the stalks of the leaves and place stalks on the bottom of the pan where the cooking will be done, over these put one layer of vine leaves. Place 1/2 tablespoon of the filling on each leaf, roll and line up in the pan. After all the leaves are stuffed, cover the entire surface with a layer of leaves and pour the water, the remaining olive oil and lemon juice over and cook on moderate heat. When the leaves become tender remove from heat, and put on a serving plate after they have cooled down. Decorate the plate with lemon slices, serve along with the remaining lemon juice if desired. Can be served with tarator (see the recipe)
