Ingredients for 4 people

  • 1 and a half onion bulbs
  • 5 slices of bread
  • 1 ham bone
  • A leek
  • 1 carrot
  • A handful of fresh garlic
  • 2 eggs
  • Olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • Half a cayenne pepper
  • A little bit of parsley

Directions

  • Firstly, you’ll make the broth. Boil the leek, carrot, and ham bone in a pot with enough water to cover all of the ingredients. Then add in the parsley sprigs and let it cook for a half hour. Once it’s ready, strain the ingredients and save the broth for later.
  • Then prepare a pan with a splash of olive oil in it, and the peeled garlic cloves along with the pepper. The smell is very nice! When you see the garlic is browned, put in the bread slices (previously cut into pieces).
  • Then fry it well and add a teaspoon of paprika. After that, cover it with the broth that you made earlier.
  • Cook at a medium heat for 25 minutes. Keep stirring well.
  • After that, add the two raw eggs and let them cook. Some people don’t add them – it’s a question of preference. There are also recent studies that say that a moderate consumption of eggs doesn’t raise cholesterol.
  • Then put a little bit of oil in another pan and put in some more fresh diced garlic. Let them fry and then remove them, drying them so that there isn’t too much oil. Add these to the soup.
  • When you serve it, remember to remove the pepper. It’s a very healthy dish for your heart!
