Pick out a head of garlic - or more - if like me you are mad about the taste
Slice the garlic finely, and fry. Boil a pan of water. Quantities depend on how many you are cooking for. I just fill up a big pan. Add water and stock cubes (2) and a little salt. Add fried garlic.
Slice up old stale bread and flash fry.
Add tin if tuna, and a good teaspoon or two of paprika. (Scrap the tuna if you are going for the veggie option)
Boil gently for 15-20 mins.
Just before serving, break an egg and add whole. 1 egg per person. Leave for 4 mins.
Serve in a bowl or mug. Yummy. Tastes even better the following day.
Like all good Spanish recipes, they use seasonal and cheap ingredients. This garlic soup is a very old recipe but still in use in restaurants everywhere. You can find it written as: Sopa de Ajo
