This is a typical Spanish soup that is served as a tapa. It is simple, rustic, and delicious!


  1. Heat olive oil in large saucepan.
  2. Add garlic, bread cubes and paprika and stir until bread cubes are a golden brown. Do not let the garlic burn.
  3. Add water, then salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes. Adjust seasoning.
  4. In a separate pan, fry the eggs in olive oil.
  5. Serave the soup in rustic "cazuelas" or in deep soup bowls. Add a fried egg on top and serve immediately.

I had never tried Sopa de Ajo before. Very interesting - simple and easy to prepare with just a handful of ingredients. I did include the optional egg. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8
