Spanish Garlic Soup

How to make a Spanish Garlic Soup.

Ingredients: Serves 4

  • 8 cloves of garlic
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 slices of old bread
  • 100g of Serrano ham
  • 1.5 litres of water or vegetable broth
  • ½ teaspoon of sweet paprika
  • ½ teaspoon of hot paprika
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt


  1. Peel the garlic cloves and cut them into thin slices.
  2. Add some extra virgin olive oil in a saucepan until the bottom is covered and heat over medium heat.
  3. Add the sliced garlic cloves and fry them until they begin to brown a little, being careful not to burn them.
  4. Cut the bread slices in two or three pieces and add them to the pan.
  5. Fry them together with the garlic until they soak up all the flavours.
  6. Cut half of the Serrano ham into strips or cubes and sauté with the rest of the ingredients for a couple of minutes approximately.
  7. Remove the pan from the heat and add the two types of paprika and mix well.
  8. Add the water or the broth, salt to taste and put it back on the heat, at medium-low level, for 20 minutes.
  9. Then, turn off the heat, crack the four eggs directly into the pot and cover it so that they cook with the residual heat.
  10. Once the soup is served, garnish with some of the Serrano ham that you had set aside.
