If you want to make it the main course, I'd bake or buy a fabulous bread and really good butter. And I'd make a big mixed vegetable salad to go alongside or after the soup. With a homemade vinaigrette, of course! ;)

Skirt or flank steak sandwiches would be a nice pair. on heavily buttered bread it doesn't get much easier. soup and sandwich combo is always a hit. you could make a salad to round it out with a lime based dressing. maybe slices of manchego cheese on it.
If you'd like to keep it vegetarian, a Gallette would be nice with goat cheese and/or manchego cheese olives and caramelized onions I'm thinking. anchovies if your guests are adventurous. Sorry I don't have a recipe but would suggest tossing it all together like a pizza using creme freche as your "sauce" or even plain tomato sauce, fold up the sides, and bake at 350-400 for 30-40min or so. keep your eye on it.

I see something simple such as roasted tail on shrimp. I put them in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper and possibly a little nacho chili powder. Roast for 4-6 minutes (depending on size) at 425f. It's a wonderful way to prepare shrimp and the color would be pretty next to the soup. Serve with some crusty bread and you have a lovely dinner.

Maybe a fancy quesadilla?

And: Am I the only one who wants the recipe for the soup? It sounds fantastic.
