Seven soups every Saturday: soup recipes with lamb


We often hear the phrase "Spring chicken", but seldom in connection with actual chicken. I'm no Spring chicken, that's for sure. I'm no Spring lamb, either, but lamb is the meat I most associate with this time of year. And, more and more, I love its slightly-lighter-than-beef flavor in soups and stews. If you live near a Middle Eastern or Mediterranean community, one that features lamb in the cuisine, you'll find beautiful cuts of lamb at local butcher shops. Rhode Islanders can look for Don Minto from Jamestown's Watson Farm, at the Coastal Growers Market.

Seven soup recipes with lamb caught my eye this week:

Orzo soup with Merguez lamb meatballs, from Bitchin' Camero

Garbanzo and white bean soup with lamb and rosemary, from Kalyn's Kitchen

Lamb and yogurt soup, from Cooking... by the seat of my Pants!

Slow cooker lamb and lentil soup, from Pithy and Cleaver

Lamb soup with dandelion greens, from Sippity Sup

Persian pomegranate soup: ash-e anar, from Tigers & Strawberries

Spicy lamb soup: tongseng kambing, from Cooking Et Cetera

I have been using a lamb bone (when I have one which is rarely) in my pea soup instead of a ham bone for years. Makes a delicious soup

I love lamb, but I don't use it nearly often enough in soup. I think I'd like every one of these soups!

Janet, that's a great idea, and I never thought to try it. Now I will! Thanks.

Kalyn, same here. I should use lamb more, especially as there are farms near me that sell their own.

wow. Don't know why I haven't ever thought of trying lamb in soup... looks amazing!
