Sopa de ajo, aka a fabulous ending for stale bread

August 21, 2010 - 9:58pm -- Urchina

While it's not a bread recipe, it's a great way to use up stale bread, especially heels. Very little prep time, very yummy results. Excellent for winter nights. It's a spanish-inspired bread and garlic soup, Sopa de Ajo!


For 4-6 people you will need:

8 cups vegetable or chicken broth

as many whole eggs as you have people

a 1/2 cup of stale, cubed bread (I use cubes about 1.5 inches on a side, including crust)

8 cloves garlic 

1 T paprika (smoked is nice if you can find it)

2 T olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

I went to Spain and discovered tostas.  It's a mystery to me because it has the qualities of both a quick bread and a yeast bread as well as a biscuit.  Can anyone point my to a recipe?  It's a simple staple in Spain but do you think that I can find it anywhere on the internet?  Any Spanish bakers out there that might be willing to share their recipe?

Thank you!

Kneading and Folding video- Español

March 12, 2008 - 10:52am -- mcs

Hey everybody. This is the same kneading and folding video as before, but with Spanish subtitles for the commentary, thanks to fellow FreshLoafian, Joe Martello. I have an Italian and German version in the works, and am looking for someone to transcribe it in French. If you're interested, I can send you the English version in Word, then you can put the matching French sentences underneath the English. Thanks.

Spanish Breads?

October 19, 2007 - 9:53pm -- Terk
  • I've been scouring the internet for weeks now, looking for authentic recipes from Spain. I have a presentation coming up for my Spanish class, and wanted to wow my peers with something exciting. Now, while I realize that Spain isn't exactly the yeasted-bread capital of the world, I refuse to believe that generations of culinary achievement have only produced a few questionable recipes of Pan de Muerto (the only recipe my searching turned up.) Does anyone have bread recipes that reflect some of Spain's wonderful culture and cuisine?
