Spanish Garlic Soup
Here’s one for the garlic lovers. Also for the rustic, comfort food-loving crowd. Ditto for the folks who like to keep things on the super economical side. In this video, you’ll see how to make a classic Spanish garlic soup (Sopa de Ajo). You’ll gently sizzle thinly sliced garlic in olive oil with diced ham and paprika; it’s a tremendous foundation for building an intensely flavorful, satisfying soup. You'll combine the garlic oil with cubes of toasted day-old French or Italian bread and then simmer everything in chicken stock, finishing with chopped Italian parsley and poached eggs. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Spanish Garlic Soup. It’s one of the world’s great bowls of soup and perhaps history’s most amazing garlic delivery system.
