Garlic Soup

Ingredients

20 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon paprika (sweet or smoked but not hot)
Pinch of saffron
1 cup chopped tomatoes
2 eggs, beaten
Stale bread

Preparation

1
Place garlic and oil in a large saucepan and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes but do not brown the garlic - browning the garlic will make for a bitter soup.
2
Add paprika and saffron and cook for another 2 minutes. The mixture may stick to the saucepan.
3
Add tomatoes and cook for another 2 minutes.
4
Add chicken stock and bring to a boil.
5
When soup is boiling, reduce heat, stir in eggs and return to simmer.
