Sopa De Ajo – Spanish Garlic Bread Soup

  • Sopa De Ajo may be one of my favorite dishes out there. I love ANY kind of soup. I LOVE any garlic dish. Putting them both together? Pure bliss for my taste buds. This awesome rustic soup is as diverse as the Spaniards who pioneered the soup, with about as many ways to make it as you could possibly imagine. My version of the soup is a variant of Chef John (from Food Wishes)’s take on the dish.

As stated in the video I regrettably went with a pre-chopped jarred garlic over slicing whole garlic myself. This resulted in a less bold and robust garlic flavor, so do as I say and not as I do and go with the whole stuff.

Ingredients:

  • About 3 cups of bread cut into approximately 1″ cubes
  • 1/2 Cup Olive Oil + some to drizzle on bread
  • 8-12 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 Tbsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Cayenne pepper
  •  2 Cups Chicken or Vegetable stock
  • 1 Egg
  • Salt, to taste

Top 5 Moms in Video Games!

Like it or not, Mothers day comes back again each and every year. It’s a day for us to spend with our mothers, the women who carried us for 9 months and brought us into this world. The women who raised and cared for us. The woman who kissed bruises, bandaged cuts and was always there to tuck us in at night. So in the spirit of mothers this past mothers day, lets take a look at some of the best (and worst) moms in video games!

This recipe (and video as a whole) came about as a final project for my culinary school’s nutrition class. The video is now almost 3 years old and I’m somewhat embarrassed by it’s lack of quality, yet somehow it’s a favorite among friends and family.

  • 1 Cup Rolled Oats
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
