Sopa de Ajo – Garlic Soup 

Hello guys.. My posts won’t be as often as I would like now because I have broken my ankle and I can’t stand for long periods of time.. Unfortunately I have a lot of time on my hands but will not have time to cook as much as I want, which means I won’t be able to post on my blog either 😦  All I do these days is eat take away and watch tv shows… I am running out of things to watch!  I have managed to cook one meal since I broke my ankle on Tuesday night. I thought that making a soup would be quite easy.. It is however I still sweated like a nun in a brothel! It was like I was in a threadmill running for 10k! Sweat drops rolling down my head.. My back completely soaked! This isn’t life you know?

  

   For this recipe, you’ll need a bunch of flat parsley, about 8 cubes of bread (I’ve used French baguette), half of garlic head (finely chopped), 4 slices of ham (chopped in pieces), two eggs, paprika, chicken stock, extra virgin olive oil and some special black truffle oil. 

I’ve put the cubes of bread in a tray and soaked them with olive oil with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Bake the bread until crispy.  Heat a generous amount of oil in a pan and fry the garlic until is golden. Add the ham and the paprika (our paprika is special homemade from our housemate’s mom!). Pour bread into pot and toss to coat with hot oil mixture. Pour chicken stock into bread mixture, add salt (I like to be all fancy and use truffle salt) and black pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and stir in parsley. 

Make 2 depressions in the bread on top of the soup with a spoon. Crack and slowly pour an egg into each depression. Cover the pan with a lid and cook until egg whites are firm and yolks are thick but not hard.     This recipe takes no more than 10 minutes and it’s super delicious! You can easily make this at home when you don’t have much at home or if you just want something quick after a long hard day!   

This is going to be me for some weeks.. If you have anything that I can do to kill time in the meantime.. Any books or shows that I should watch please don’t hesitate to suggest some!  Ana xx
