Leftover shredded lamb and spring vegetable soup recipe

7 ratings

A substantial and hearty main course soup, full of chunky seasonal veg – just right for a cool spring evening. This recipe is a mouthwatering leftovers idea from our spicy lamb with herb and nut rice dish. The leftover meat needs to be thoroughly reheated until piping hot and should never be re-heated more than once. See method
