Castilian garlic soup

Warm-up and very filling castilian soup with garlic flavor - therefore called sometimes garlic soup (sopa de ajo) - and smoked paprika aroma, shows that with very few and simple ingredients a nourishing dish with distinct taste can be created.

The main ingredients in this soup are: bread, garlic, serrano ham and smoked paprika. The base is water or chicken broth and just before serving raw egg is added, which after a short cooking time splits up into congealed pieces.


Ingredients (serves 2):

750 ml chicken broth
2 slices of bread (can be stale)
2 eggs
120 g serrano ham, diced  into small pieces
1 teaspoon smoked paprika (pimentón)
3 clove of garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil

Method:

Heat the olive oil. Cut peeled garlic cloves into small slices and fry till golden brown.  Add bread and fry for 2-3 minutes. Add serrano ham and after about 3 minutes smoked paprika. Mix well and turn the heat off. Smoked paprika shouldn't be frying for a long time, because it may turn bitter.

Transfer all ingredients into a pot, if you fried them in a frying pan, and pour hot chicken stock into it. Cook over low heat during 15-20 minutes. At the end of a cooking time crack the eggs into the pot, stir well and continue cooking for another 2 minutes.



Enjoy !!!
