What to serve with lamb loin chops
I'm having lamb loin chops marinated in yogurt and rosemary for dinner. I'm planning on grilling them. I've only served lamb a couple of times, and all as an appetizer, so I just paired it with a dipping sauce, not a whole menu.
I just can't decide what to serve with them. I have some leftover eggplant soup (inspired by the recent chow eggplant soup video) that I might put under or over it as a sauce (there is only like a half cup left).
I'm wondering if people could suggest something to round out the dinner.
A salad? A rice or bulgur dish? I guess I'm aiming for the Mediterranean but any suggestions are welcome.
I love couscous with lamb. If the flavors would work OK, one of my favorite things to do with couscous is to let it steam, fluff, and then mix in chopped parsley, currants or golden raisins, chopped scallions, and lemon zest. Top with toasted pinenuts.
Roasted rosemary potatoes could go well.

Leftover eggplant soup as sauce sounds like a good re-purposing!
I really like French style flagelot or cannelini beans 'simmered' in a bit of weak stock, garlic clives and rosemary so that any liquid reduces and leaves nice garlicky rosemary beans
