Spanish Garlic & Vinegar Soup | QUICK & EASY Heartwarming Recipe

This Spanish Garlic & Vinegar Soup, known as Sopa de Ajo y Vinagre, is what humble and heartwarming food is all about. We’re talking pantry staples, effortless to make and all done in about 30 minutes. Serve this soup next to a crunchy baguette and a bottle of Spanish red wine for a delicious meal.

What gives this soup texture is the bread. I used slices of baguette. But you can use any type of bread you have on hand. However, a crunchier or denser type of bread will give the soup a more stable texture.

Spanish Garlic & Vinegar Soup
For the liquid, I used homemade vegetable broth. But other liquids can be used here. Such as chicken broth or even beef broth. As for the vinegar, I used sherry vinegar, which is what’s typically used. You can also use red wine vinegar or even apple cider vinegar.

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: To make the garlic and parsley paste, which truly elevates the flavors of this soup I used a hand blender. But a food processor, stand-up blender or even a nutri-bullet will get the job done.

  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley 8 grams
  • 2 cloves garlic roughy chopped

  6. After 10 minutes remove the lid, using a large wooden spoon or spatula, push down on the slices of baguette and break them apart into smaller chunks, then crack in the eggs into the soup, all evenly spaced out, place the lid back on the pan and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes or until the egg whites are just cooked through, then remove from the heat
