Sopa de Ajo


  • Place the leeks, onion, potatoes and garlic in a large heavy-bottomed pot and cover with stock. Then add the paprika, salt and thyme. Mix well, cover and cook for about 20-30 mins until tender. Taste for seasoning.
  • Grill the bread and sausages on a lightly oiled ridged grill.
  • At the same time, bring a wok or deep pan of water to a simmer. Add the vinegar, swirl with a spoon and float eggs in. Gently cook until the whites are set. Then remove and drain well.
  • To serve, place a piece of bread in each bowl, top with an egg and spoon the soup around. Arrange chorizo around the edges, ladle a little more soup on top and garnish with parsley.
