Don’t worry, this soup from Cadiz does not contain cat meat after all. It is true that cats were eaten in Spain in the Middle Ages, for example at the court of His Majesty Ferdinand of Naples, and certainly not because His Majesty was stingy. Back to the cat soup, which no one remembers where it got its name.

Rinse the bell pepper, cut it open, remove the stem end and seeds. Chop the garlic with a cradle knife. Season the garlic and paprika with salt and sauté in a saucepan in a small amount of olive oil.

Remove the crust from the slices of white bread and toast them as well. Season with cumin and paprika powder and extinguish with water.

Bring the soup to a boil and simmer on low heat for ten minutes until the bread has dissolved.

Beat the eggs with the cheese. Remove the saucepan from the stove, stir in the egg-cheese mixture, cover the saucepan with a lid, simmer for five minutes and bring to the table.
