Sopas De Ajo a La Madrileña

Garlic Soup à La Madrilène

Garlic soup is one of the most popular soups in Spain, and each province has its own and special way of making it. This is how it is made in Madrid:


  • allow 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 thin slice of bread
  • 1 gill of water
  • a little oil.


Fry the garlic in a little oil till it begins to colour, then add the bread, season with salt and pepper, pour the boiling water over this, boil for 1 minute and serve. A beaten egg is sometimes added if the soup is preferred thick.
