JD - I made 1/2 quantity which is 2 meals for me.  Only addition was a umami cube which I tend to throw in all soups these days.  It's a nice soup Chookie. This is a very delicate but tasty soup.

I made this yesterday, 1/2 quantity which is 2 meals for me.  Only addition was a umami cube which I tend to throw in all soups these days.  It's a nice soup Chookie.  Whilst I was eating it I thought of a perfect word to describe it but now I've forgotten what that word was  :-)) ;D  I enjoyed it with some of your Welsh Rarebit.

I've remembered the word - delicate.  This is a very delicate but tasty soup  ;D

I just saw this recipe JD as I'm researching a recipe to make for the challenge that is not already a favourite (hard). Loved Ral's comment that even the queen wouldn't enjoy better soup  :D what a sweetheart

I personally love this soup.   I always keep a couple of tins of crab in the pantry, so if we have unexpected visitors, I can whip up something nice.

Had this soup tonight, in preparation for an upcoming dinner with friend.  We had to had a little more thickening, but came out really well.  This is a very nice soup.

Each time I see this I can't help thinking, "first catch your crab."
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

I made this today, added some corn kernels and used red capsicum instead of green. Half quantity does 3 meals for me.  Ive blitzed the remaining soup as I had trouble eating the corn even though Id chopped it up as much as I could by hand before adding it to the soup. Thanks for reminding me of it Chookie, I had forgotten Id made it many years ago.

Hope you enjoy it Judy. The Green capsicum does taste different, however use what you have.
