This might become one of your favorite soups, especially during those cold winter days. I know it may sound a bit odd to eat a "garlic soup" but trust me, you will be surprised at the taste of this traditional sopa de ajo from Mexico. The origin of this soup comes from Spain, the bravest country when it comes to garlic. The Mexican variation does not include egg, in addition to other minor details.
Don't worry; once you fully cook it, you won't have to deal with the garlicky aroma, and no, it will not give you garlic breath.
It's a great soup to keep in your freezer not just because it is delicious, but also because garlic is extremely good for your health. It's rich in vitamins such as C, B6,and antioxidants, and has a high potency to lower cholesterol levels and boost your metabolism. It's a delicious way to enjoy this rich superfood without having to compromise.
