    What to Cook with Lamb Soup?

    I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to be posting this question, but here goes anyway. We are going to have company for dinner in about 1-1/2 weeks and they offered to bring a lamb soup. They offered before I even decided what I was going to serve. Now I'm wondering - what should I cook that will complement the soup? I don't have to cook a lamb do I? Or does it really matter what I do? Any help/ideas would be appreciated.

    Is the soup the main dish, or just a course? Make a salad, have some good bread, and a great dessert.
    Without knowing what the soup's primary flavors are it's hard to suggest anything specific. For instance, if it's a curried lamb soup you'd want to accompany it with Indian-type dishes.

    1 1/2 weeks from now is close to St Patrick's day. Is this going to be an "Irish" lamb soup/stew? Is it the main course or 1st course?

    Perhaps some "Irish" rolls or bread to go with the soup (if that is the 'flavor' of the soup).
    Find the 4-Leaf Clover Rolls
    Mccann's Oat Brown Bread
    Irish Brown Bread
    Irish Brown Bread

    Regardless of the 'flavor'/ethnicity of the soup/stew, I would go with a hearty bread and a salad. icon_smile.gif

    You both pose good questions. I was going to make it the first course but cooking a meal to go with it would be very filling so I like the bread and salad ideas. I will have to ask what spices they plan to use.
    Thank you for your posts.

    I think it would be a good idea to ask them if they intend this to be a starter or the main course.

    Agreed with all. If I were to make lamb soup/stew, I would consider it a main dish. Now, for St Patty's Day, we often have a crowd and have 2-3 main dishes. We do make a main stew (lamb); we also have bangers, usually a cabbage dish, and a few Irish faves. Soda bread, and fruit or salad for those who don't like cabbage.

    It really depends on how many. Is there dish a main dish or just part of the main dish. Is this a St Patty's day type of dinner ... Irish; or is it just a soup and salad night.

    I think you need to sit down and talk to your friends and come up with a menu. Lamb soup is not something most would bring just as a dish.

    And, as mentioned ... find out the seasoning or spices used. That makes a big difference in what to serve with it.

    @SarasotaCook - dinner is only for the 4 of us. I think I really need to find out what this soup is all about. He threw me off guard when he said they would bring a lamb soup. I was not prepared because he offered to bring it the same time we invited them and I said "ok". Even before we thought about what we were going to cook. On the other hand, if this ends up being the main course, that's a lot of work I don't have to do now. lol!!!

    Dinner is set for March 2 so it's not that close to St. Patrick's day.
