Love (Garlic) soup (Soupa tou Erota- Skordosoupa)

Garlic is an age-old medicinal plant: not only does it treat colds, flu, digestive problems, high blood pressure, it is a diuretic and an aphrodisiac as well!

Take one head of garlic per person and boil it in water with salt and pepper until soft enough to press the garlic out of each clove and puree. Beat one egg per person in a cup with a bit of water, add the garlic paste and mix in enough water to make the desired quantity of soup. Meanwhile, fry slices of bread in a little olive oil and divide them over the soup bowls. Heat the soup just to boiling and pour it over the bread croutons in the bowls to serve.
