Lamb, dill and lemon soup


Based on a traditional Romanian recipe, this soup is filling yet it feels light when eating it. Lamb, dill and lemon is a winning combination. The strong flavours of the main ingredients are tempered nicely by the sour cream. Yummy!

We like this soup so much that everyone asks for a refill. Twice. Some of us three times.
