This is our family's FAVORITE soup! (It's hard to save it for special occasions now, because it's SO EASY!) We like this as an appetizer with California rolls (sushi) on the side. Makes a great (and different) first course!

A great base recipe, but I had to change a couple of things. One 4.75 oz. can of crab meat is the perfect amount and tastes better than the imitation crab would. I substituted 1/2 tsp. chili powder for the cumin b/c I'm not a fan of cumin. I skipped the salt. I also added a 1/4 cup of grated parmesean and a tsp. each of italian seasoning and onion powder. I highly recommend the parmesean-it added a great flavor. Next time I will try it with the sauted onions, as someone else suggested. Tasted great and will definately make again, but with the changes mentioned. Read More

I chose this recipe because it looked simple and got good reviews. Well it ended up tasting a just too plain and simple and I had to modify it by adding fresh tomatoes mushrooms and garlic to turn it into a pasta sauce I could actually eat. I will not make this recipe again. Read More

One of the best crab bisques I have ever had, definitely restaurant quality. However the exact recipe presented here looked a little bland so I added: 1 clove garlic, 2 jalapenos minced, 1/4 c. chives, 1 c. frozen corn, and substituted heavy cream for the milk. Read More

This simple recipe needed some help. While I was able to reduce the fat by using skim milk Campbell's "Healthy Choice" mushroom & tomato soups it was too sweet for my taste. Juice from a lemon along with diced garlic red pepper celery mushroom and a spike of red pepper added more depth to the flavor. It was great over brown rice! Read More

Excellent recipe! Quick and easy! I've made it twice now and definitely recommend using lump crabmeat instead of imitation. Using cajun seasoning gives it a really nice kick. Enjoy it with "everything" flatbread. Read More

What a delicious soup! I didn't have any mushroom soup so I used cream of potato. The texture and taste was great. With the imitation crab diced it was like a crab chowder. I also added some green onion for flavor and color. I didn't need any extra salt but I did add more curry than the recipe called for. Even my two kids liked it! Read More

Well after reading the reviews it looked like a "love it or hate it" recipe. Not being one to shrink away from eclectic dishes and since the ingredients weren't expensive I thought I'd give this one a try. And I liked it! Next time I'll sauté some fresh mushrooms in a little butter and add them and add just a dash more curry for extra zip. For me? This is a keeper! Read More
