Total:25 mins

Prep:5 mins

Cook:20 mins

Servings:6 servings


3 - 4 tbsp  olive oil

3 cloves garlic (sliced)

3 1/2 ounces ham (Spanish cured or other cured ham, cut into 1/4-inch cubes)

2 to 3 slices bread (day-old French-style bread cubed)

1 tablespoon paprika (sweet)

1/4 pint water 

6 large eggs

Salt to taste

1/2 cup parsley

Castilian Garlic Soup


In a heavy frying pan, heat the oil and add the garlic. Remember not to slice it too thin because it can burn quickly. Keep the cooking temperature at medium heat because olive oil can also burn and leave your dish with a bitter aftertaste.

Before the garlic turns brown, add the cubed ham and the slices of bread sautéing them for a few minutes on medium heat.

Add the sweet paprika, followed by the water and salt. Bring to a slow boil. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.

Poach the eggs, carefully breaking them into the soup one at a time. Cover without stirring and let the eggs cook in the soup, for approximately 3 to 5 minutes.

Once the eggs have the consistency you desire, scoop out the poached eggs one at a time, into soup bowls and then slowly ladle the soup into each bowl. To serve, top each bowl with fresh parsley.
