Dildo Soup

See, that got you interested…

I may be the eldest in our household, but am also to the delight of everyone known as the most gullible, many a laugh has been had at my expense.

Picadillo soup is of course what I mean, our favourite Spanish soup, discovered shortly after moving here to Andalucía and featured on the ubiquitous Menu del Día.

Stan had me order it, telling me it was called Pickadildo – and of course I fell hook, line and sinker, to the sniggering amusement of our fellow diners.  I’m also not known for a quiet voice.  Haha very funny, I was not amused, it has taken a while to see the funny side.

Anyway, it contains neither Dildos nor Picks – I said Picks – and is delicious, we make our own these days.

It’s essentially a tasty chicken broth, salty and cloudy, like a good Jewish mother would serve if you had the sniffles.  Next time you roast up that chicken boil up the bones and make your own stock.

Then it’s just an assembly job.

In a bowl, chopped hard boiled egg, crispy bread croutons, Jamón trimmings, cooked chicken or pork, or even boiled ham, placed around the bottom.  Then the diner just pours over stock to taste, and that’s it.  Vary the ingredients, according to whatever is left over in the fridge – no one will turn a bowl down.

It also cures hangovers!
