Sopa de Ajo (Garlic Soup)
Happy Soup Wednesday!! This is the second to last Soup Wednesday post, but don't worry I've got something else planned for Wednesdays beginning in March.
This recipe comes from Cooking Light and you can find the original here. According to the original post this soup is meant to be an appetizer, but I thought it was enough for a light dinner.

This soup was great, the garlic flavor wasn't too overwhelming (I was a little worried about that), it had a perfect balance of flavor. This got an A+ from J., he really liked that this soup was different than a traditional soup and I love eggs that are cooked to have a runny yolk. There was a really great balance with all of the ingredients and I will be making this again. It's a perfect week night supper with not too much work.
