Spanish garlic soup has been around for ages, find out why this soup is so popular! A traditional Spanish comfort food, this bowl of soup is lightening quick to prepare and utterly comforting and delicious.
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!!
Why you should get your own copy of Ladled
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.
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.
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!
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
A super simple, flavorful egg soup that will warm you up on a cold Winter's day!
- 2 tablespoons avocado oil
- 3-6 cloves garlic roughly chopped or sliced
- 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary finely minced or 1/2 tablespoon dried
- 4 cups chicken broth or stock, or vegetable broth
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika Key! Regular paprika is not the same
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon sea salt to taste, depends on if your stock was salted or not!
- 4 large eggs
- 4 pieces preferred bread toasted (optional, we have never done this)
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.
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.
Crack the eggs into the barely simmering soup. Cover, and cook about 4 minutes for soft yolks, 6 minutes for hard.
Line each bowl with a piece of toast if you like, then ladle soup and an egg over the top!
Nutritional facts do not include the bread option

My family loved a Mexican version of this garlic and egg soup. Can’t wait to try this one! I know it will be a hit! I’ve been eyeing this cookbook too. Thanks for your perspective. I have Kimi’s salad cookbook, and it sounds like this is another one worth getting!
I just found you through Tuesday Greens. I am so happy to have logged on today and found this post because I LOVE eggs and soup together. I am excited to try this recipe! While I am here, I will need to check out other good eats you have to offer!
GiGi Eats Celebrities says
Wow this LOOK OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!! My mouth would be THRILLED to enjoy this – sadly I cannot eat eggs, but man, those photos are filling enough! 😉
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.
Thanks for sharing the new book. I love her site as I love yours. What a pleasure it is, to feature this, this week.
Cindy (Vegetarian Mamma) says

‘Ladled’ sounds like a wonderful book! I really like the wonderful flavours in this soup, as well as the idea of poaching the eggs actually in it. It sounds delicious! I’ll be featuring this post in my Hearth and Soul post this week 🙂

Forgot to mention that I put some of this broth over a bowl of leftover Tessa’s Jambalaya and it was awesome that way too!
This yummy! I love the unique flavor and so comforting! A keeper..
France @ Beyond The Peel says
What a lovely review. This soup sounds wonderful. No wonder its become a family favorite.
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.
Tessa Domestic Diva says
So easy too, huh Sarah?!! Glad your picky eaters enjoyed it too…I have had more bowls of this than I can count!
This looks so interesting–love the idea of smoked paprika. Thanks for posting!
Wow, I had no idea Kimberly had a new cookbook out. I am a huge soup lover so I will have to definitely check this one out! Great review, and that recipe looks amazing.
This soup sounds so good!
Tessa, you might want to go back and correct a number of typos.
Tessa Domestic Diva says
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!
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.
