Those amazing beans in the lamb and bean stew were too good to throw out, but we had had all we wanted of them for the meantime. I stuck the rest in the fridge, figuring I'd have it one day when My Beloved was out on business.

But, then we had a pre-Christmas celebratory dinner with daughter Katie and her hubz, a rack of lamb. I saved all the bones and made lamb broth with them (oh, yes!). Katie mentioned that lamb broth makes a killer risotto, so stand by for that post, but in the meantime, I thought I'd also make soup.

When the broth had simmered for several hours, long enough to get all the good stuff out of dem bones, I simply removed the bones, threw in the rest of that bean stew and added some fresh green beans and carrots, plus a couple of leftover roasted fingerling potatoes and parsnips. 

The deep-down goodness of the beans still stole the show, but the warm broth and fresh veggies disguised what would otherwise simply have been boring old leftovers. I could eat this every day for a year.

Enjoying your creativity with the beans and lamb; sounds so luscious for the cold winter day we have here in MN.

I love beans.... and have been eating them lately, too. Something about cold weather and beans.
I've never made broth with lamb - will now!
Happy New Year!
