Boil the bones, meat and water in a good-sized stock pot. Then remove the bones from the stock and scrape all the meat from them.

Step 3:


Return the chunks of rabbit to the broth and add the carrots, onions, lentils or split peas, and tomatoes . . . plus any other vegetables you may wish to include in your soup.


Season, add suet or butter, and simmer until the vegetables are tender.

Combine 2 tablespoons Cape Crystal xanthan gum with 1 tablespoon hot water, for every 1 cup of soup, in a small bowl. Whisk quickly until the mixture is smooth.

Step 5:

Pour the thickening mixture into the stock pot containing the soup, and whisk constantly. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat and continue whisking for 5 minutes.

Add a second mixture of xanthan gum and water to the soup and repeat until it reaches the desired consistency.
