Cuban garlic soup

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1¼ cup Chicken broth
2 teaspoons Olive oil
1 Garlic clove, peeled and
Crushed
1 slice Cuban or French bread
1 Egg
Salt and freshly ground
Pepper to taste
1 teaspoon Parsley, minced
2 teaspoons Queso blanco, hard, grated

Bring the chicken broth to a boil. In a small skillet, heat the oil.

Add the garlic and saute until golden and aromatic. Place the bread in a large soup bowl, pour the oil and garlic over it, add the boiling chicken broth, and immediately break the egg into the soup.

It will cook in 2 to 3 minutes. Add salt and pepper, and sprinkle with parsley and cheese.

NOTE: There are dozens of quesos blanco, or white cheeses, which is exactly how the name translates. Some are soft, some fresh, but many aged. Queso blanco generally mild flavored, though some of the aged ones can be quite tangy. They are found in markets in Florida and in most cities with colonies of residents of Caribbean, Cuban, or Mexican ancestry. Try the cheeses and choose the one that suits your taste.
