Garlic Bread Soup

Garlic Bread Soup


It’s cold outside, so why not warm up your insides with this delicious Garlic Bread Soup. Surprisingly easy to make, yet filled with lots of garlic flavor, this soup will warm you up and provide you with the benefits of garlic at the same time. It’s a recipe I saved from Martha Stewart Living way back in May of 2004 – I guess we can call it an oldie, but a goodie.

Choose to use a high quality olive oil for the best flavor in this rustic soup. If you don’t have stale bread on hand, lightly toast fresh bread, and tear it into small pieces.

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, preferably Spanish
  • 8 large garlic cloves, mashed to a paste with 1 tsp coarse salt
  • 2 cups bite-size pieces of stale, crusty bread (4 ounces)
  • 5 cups homemade or low-sodium store-bought chicken stock
  • 1 bay leaf
  • coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • flat-leaf parsley leaves, for garnish.


Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-low heat until hot but not smoking. Add garlic paste; cook, stirring occasionally, until very fragrant but not browned, about 10 minutes.

Add bread, and stir to coat. Stir in stock and bay leaf; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes.

Discard bay leaf. Stir in eggs. Cook, stirring occasionally to break up the eggs, about 10 minutes. Serve soup garnished with parsley leaves.
