Garlic and Bread Soup

10min.chef's picture
  Baguette 1 Small
  Fruity olive oil 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Garlic cloves 1 Large, peeled
  Minced garlic 2 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Finely chopped parsley 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Finely chopped coriander 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  White wine vinegar 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Chicken stock 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Eggs 4 (At Room Temperature)

1) Take bread and chop it into 8 half inch thick slices.

2) Take a large saute pan (big enough to place the bread slices in single layer) and place it over medium heat. Pour 1/4 cup oil in it and heat.
3) Stir in peeled garlic clove and saute for about a minute. Put in bread slices in a single layer and fry for 1-2 minutes on either side, until browned.
4) Lift the breads up from the pan, and place them on a plate lined with double thickness paper towels. Allow to drain.
5) In the meantime, mix minced garlic and salt in a mortar and grind it to a fine paste using the pestle. Alternatively, you may mash the mixture with the back of a spoon in a small bowl.
6) Place a medium skillet over medium-low heat and add 1 quart water and 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar to it. Bring the mixture to a simmer.
7) Also, place a small saucepan over medium-low heat and heat chicken stock in it. Crack eggs into bowl and slide them, one at time into the simmering water in the skillet.
8) Poach eggs for about 3 minutes.

9) Transfer the bread slices to soup bowls and use a slotted spoon to arrange poached eggs on top. Pour the stock over and serve immediately.
