Need ideas for rounding out menu with lamb shanks as main.

  • 3

I'll be making Molly Stevens lamb shanks Provencal. I'd like to "mostly" keep with that region but it's not an absolute with me. I'll probably go with two sides.

Some side ideas:
lentils (not sure what presentation)
cauliflower gratin
braised fennel
root veg puree
some type of raw salad
green beans

I'm thinking of doing a simple starter of a tapenade and goat cheese crostini.

What do you think? I'm open to any and all ideas.

  1. I'd like roasted asparagus and potato/celeriac puree, myself.

    1. I like the sound of cauliflower gratin and green beans. Sounds amazing.

      1. White beans done with rosemary and garlic are kind of traditional. Do a crunchy fresh bread crumb topping and they're heavenly.
