For 2 servings:
- 10-12 cloves of garlic, chopped

- Pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon vinegar

Procedure[edit | edit source]

- Add the flour. Mix well, then cook for a few minutes to remove the floury taste.

- Beat the egg white in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in a ladleful of the soup to temper it, then stir the mixture back into the soup pot.
- Combine the egg yolk, pepper, and vinegar in a small bowl. Like before, gradually temper the yolks with a ladleful of soup.
- Remove the soup from the heat, and stir in the egg yolk mixture. Season to taste with salt.
