Spanish Garlic Soup – foodwishes version

Serves 4


  • About 6 cups of cubed French or Italian bread
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, plus more to drizzle on bread cubes
  • 6-10 thinly sliced garlic cloves
  • 2 oz ham diced
  • 1-2 tsp paprika or to taste
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley
  • salt, pepper, cayenne to taste


Need to refresh my memory on this but here are some comments off the site: Like I say in the clip, there are as many ways to make this as families in Spain, but I really think toasting the bread is key. You’re basically replacing the flavorless water in the bread with olive oil and awesome soup. Plus, having the olive oil baked into the cubes makes for a better texture in my opinion.

  1. Despite the large amounts of garlic it doesn’t actually taste of garlic… First time went fine. Second time let the bread stand in it too long, so became rather soft and not so good. Also type of bread makes a difference I think. Otherwise tasted great. Other recipes around so worth experimenting.
