Garlic and Egg Drop Soup with Crab

  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST
  1. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 4 slices firm white bread, crusts removed, bread cut into 1-inch dice
  3. 4 garlic cloves, minced
  4. 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  5. 6 cups chicken stock or canned low-sodium broth
  6. 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  7. 1/4 pound fresh lump crabmeat, picked over (3/4 cup)
  8. 2 tablespoons minced cilantro or flat-leaf parsley
  9. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. In a large saucepan, heat 3 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the bread in an even layer and cook over moderately low heat, without turning, until browned on the bottom, about 4 minutes. Stir and cook for 1 minute longer. Push the croutons to the side. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the pan. Add the garlic and crushed red pepper and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir the croutons with the flavored oil. Pour in the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Whisk in the eggs. Remove from the heat and stir in the crabmeat and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper, ladle into bowls and serve.
