Simple Spanish Egg Soup - Paleo

I am always honored to be asked to review someone’s new cookbook.  I have followed Kimi from The Nourishing Gourmet for sometime now, she is a local food blogger I hope to someday meet!  Ladled is her new book, a book focusing entirely on soups.

I have to admit, I was a little skeptical at first.  Not that I don’t love a good soup, but I didn’t know how useful or practical and entire cookbook devoted to them would be for me.

I WAS WRONG!!  Since receiving this book…I have been hard-pressed to put it down, and let me tell you why:

  • Beautiful to look at, easy to use.  I love the picture thumbnails in the table of contents, a thumbnail image of each recipe!  Makes for a convenient and aesthetic way to peruse!  It is divided into types of soups (hearty, with beans, with eggs, stocks, etc) so finding something you are looking for is exceedingly easy.

ladled: Nourishing Soup for All Seasons

  • Conducive to almost all specialty diets out there!  GAPS, Paleo, vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free, real food……you name it, you will find a lot in this book for you.  Each recipe has a handy bubble below the image denoting it’s special diet characteristics (grain-free, quick and easy, dairy free, etc).  Everything has a dairy free option, and almost every single recipe is gluten free.
  • Stellar recipes.  I have have made over 10 recipes in this book, and not a single one has disappointed.  Some of the recipes have been repeated over 5 times already, as my kids are really digging all these soups too (I learned something new about them!).  And many of them I can whip together with almost no effort OR time.  Warm, comforting, flavorful goodness in under 20 minutes!
  • Great how-to’s/explanations.  Some great cliff note versions on soaking grains and beans for use in the soups.  There is also lots of good information on why homemade broths are so much better for your body and more flavorful.  Lots of great tips on how to get the most out of your broths too!!

I think anyone would find this a great addition to their cookbook repertoire.  I know I sure do, and I am super picky about which books take up my very limited cookbook shelf space!!  Buy your copy here: Ladled.

Here is one of our very favorite soups so far in the book.  It is so fast to throw together and so delicious!!  Enjoy!

Simple Spanish Garlic & Egg Soup From: Ladled, a Review
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2-4
A super simple, flavorful soup that will warm you up on a cold Winter's day!
  • 2 tablespoons preferred fat (olive oil, coconut oil, etc)
  • 3-6 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely minced or ½ tablespoon dried
  • 4 cups broth or stock (chicken or vegetable)
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika (key! Regular paprika is not the same)
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (to taste, depends on if your stock was salted or not!)
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 pieces of preferred bread, toasted (optional, we have never done this)
  1. In a medium sized pot, heat the oil until hot. Add the garlic, rosemary, and a pinch of salt. Sauté for 1-2 minutes until the garlic just begins to brown.
  2. Add stock right away, followed by paprika, oregano, and remaining salt. Bring to a low simmer over medium heat, turn to low, and simmer for 10 minutes. Taste and add more salt if necessary.
  3. Crack the eggs into the barely simmering soup. Cover, and cook about 4 minutes for soft yolks, 6 minutes for hard.
  4. Line each bowl with a piece of toast if you like, then ladle soup and an egg over the top!

    Wow, that sounds DElICIOUS! I love The Nourishing Gourmet. I’ve been reading her for years. I’m not surprised at all at the quality of this book. She seems to have a lot of integrity and I’d be surprised if she hadn’t considered every detail before publishing. I’m definitely going to try this.

  2. Karen says:

    This soup sounds so good!

    Tessa, you might want to go back and correct a number of typos.

    • Thanks for the heads up Karen…It’s always helpful to have extra sets of eyes…I am pretty sure I got them all now (I hate having errors!). It doesn’t help that my spell check often doesn’t work within my wordpress..I can certainly find them myself..but in hurried moments…I miss some! Keep the heads up coming, thank you!

    Just made this for lunch, a stodgy crowd, a ten month old, a three year old and a five year old. Success! They never eat soup but liked the idea of eggs with a sauce. Will buy book based on this success. Thank you for posting recipe so I can test out the critics. Kimberley owes you one.

    I made this last night but added meat. Super easy and good. Even the boyfriend wary of runny yolks commented on how good eggs in the soup tasted. A couple other tweaks in my version:
